Per Mertesacker reacts to Arsenal’s ‘deserved’ win v Olympiakos (video)

Per Mertesacker says that Arsenal’s ‘last gasp’ qualification tonight was down to taking it seriously, defending as a group and executing up front.

The German defender spoke after the Gunners completed a miraculous escape out of their Champions League group and into the knockout stages of the competition, after beating Olympiakos 3-0 in Athens on Wednesday night.

An Olivier Giroud hat-trick ensured a comfortable night for Arsene Wenger’s side, and now all eyes will be on who the Gunners will get in the Champions League last 16 draw on Monday.
