Mikel Arteta has hailed the influence of the fans in helping Arsenal return to winning ways against West Brom on Saturday.

The Spaniard scored two penalties as Arsène Wenger’s side claimed their first victory since November 28 to move up to seventh in the table.

Arteta was delighted to get back on track, and says the support within Emirates Stadium was absolutely crucial to their success.

“It was a very good game, the tempo was really high and the crowd created an unbelievable atmosphere,” he told Arsenal Player.

“What they showed towards the team was a really big lift for us because we didn't know how upset they would be after last week [against Swansea].

“We have to thank them for an unbelievable effort, and we got a good three points. There was some pressure because we are not in the position we want to be at the moment.

“We want to be very consistent at home, and we haven't been this season, so this was a massive game for us.”

Arsenal visit Bradford City in the Capital One Cup quarter-final on Tuesday night, and Arteta is hoping the team can build on Saturday’s performance.

“We have a very important game coming up - it will be a tough one away at Bradford,” he said. “We have a good chance in the Capital One Cup and we can't waste it, so we must be up for that one.”
