Wenger hails stunning Wilshere goal as 'one of the best'

The Gunners went two points clear at the top of the table with a 4-1 win over Norwich on Saturday, but their manager was keen to play down talk of being title favourites
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger hailed one of the goals of the season after his side cruised to a 4-1 win over Norwich City to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table.

The Gunners were in scintillating form as Mesut Ozil scored his first two goals for the club either side of a superb solo strike from Aaron Ramsey.

But it was Jack Wilshere’s opener - a classy volley following a sensational team move - that had Wenger purring in his post-match press conference.

“It was certainly one of the best goals of the season and one I enjoyed the most,” Wenger said. “It was the combination and speed I like to play. It was a mix of technical quality, speedy thinking and quick reaction.

“It was a great goal. I think we have scored some good goals already this season, but the first today was exceptional.”

The result takes the Gunners two points clear of second-placed Chelsea after eight matches, but Wenger was keen to play down the suggestion that his side are now favourites for the title.

“We have a good attitude and are hungry,” he added. “We have a good solidarity level and quality. We have belief and that is strengthened by every win. There is a long way to go and I believe we just have to focus as a team and keep that solidarity there.”
