Arsene Wenger hails significant win after Arsenal’s 2-1 victory v Crystal Palace (video)

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger hailed his sides team spirit after the Gunners claimed their first win of the season with a hard fought 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

An Olivier Giroud acrobatic golazo and a second half own goal from Damien Delaney were enough to see off a spirited Palace side who had leveled the match at 1-1 thanks to a brilliant strike from defender Joel Ward midway through the first half.

It was a much needed win for Arsene Wenger’s side and up next for Arsenal is a tricky fixture against Liverpool at the Emirates next weekend.
