Wenger defended his team's recent run of form, hinting that he believes the criticism Arsenal received following consecutive 3-0 defeats to Manchester City and a limp 2-1 loss at Brighton went overboard.
The win in Italy saw new-boy Henrikh Mkhitaryan notch his first goal for the Gunners, adding to his five assists, as well as another big performance from Welshman Aaron Ramsey. I can understand every manager has his own problems and has to face his own daily situation.
"We played very well in the first half".
"I expected Wenger to approach the game this way and it was our mistake giving Arsenal too much space".
A trophy would be welcome, of course it would, but three FA Cup wins in the last four years have allowed the 68-year-old Frenchman to cling on to his position, all the while failing to address the serious deficiencies in the make-up of his squad.
"But at some stage, you have to respond with your pride and your desire that you have the quality to win the game and that's what we did".

According to an exclusive in the Sun on Sunday the Juve boss is ready to leave Turin and take over from Wenger if the Arsenal board decide to cut short Wenger's contract.
"We know we haven't been good enough". Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will make a return to the starting eleven for this game having been ineligible to play in the Europa League while Wenger may opt to rest Jack Wilshere ahead of Thursday's important match against Milan.
"I can not say anything more, because there is nothing to say and I do not want to hurt Arsene, whom I adore and for whom I have a lot of respect".
"I know the players - and they lead by example in the team", Iwobi told the Mirror.
"We started well but certain plays favoured them", Romagnoli said.
"We showed togetherness, we showed spirit and a lot of character".
Wenger also had some praise for Mesut Ozil, another player who has been criticised lately but who responded with two assists against Milan.
