Tomas Rosicky has praised Arsenal’s character and mental belief after Sunday’s 2-0 win over Everton at Emirates Stadium.
The Czech midfielder secured an important three points late on after Olivier Giroud had swept Arsène Wenger’s side into a first-half lead.
Rosicky feels Arsenal were hampered by their Champions League defeat against Monaco on Wednesday but said that the team were now back on track.
“You could see that the lads were affected by it and the technical level of our game was not there,” the midfielder told Arsenal Player.
“It was difficult as we were affected by the loss to Monaco but you go through disappointments throughout the season, you just have to fight through it.
“I’m glad we have these three points, it’s very important for the confidence of the whole team.
“It was a difficult game. We weren’t at our best after the disappointing night against Monaco, so it was very important to win and get the three points which we managed in the end.”
Rosicky was also pleased to score his third goal of the season on Sunday – a strike that made the seven minutes of stoppage time more comfortable.
“I was a bit lucky because there was a little deflection but I was in a good position,” he said.
“Mesut gave me a good ball because he saw me coming to the edge of the box from deep, so I shot towards the far post and got a bit lucky with the deflection.”
