Arsenal’s 3-0 victory over Chelsea was one of their best performances in recent years, according to manager Arsene Wenger.

The Gunners were dominant, winning through first-half goals from Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil.

It was their first league victory over Chelsea since 2011 and their heaviest defeat of the Blues since April 1997.

“It’s one of the games where what we wanted to do worked very well,” said Wenger.

“It’s one of those moments in your life as a manager where you think ‘today is a great day’.”

The Frenchman said his side had been “nearly perfect” in the first half.

“In the second half it was a bit in and out but in the first half we have shown great quality,” he said.

“We played with style, with pace, with movement – and that’s the kind of football we want to play.

“It’s one of the best performances in recent years.”
