In the wake of Saturday's victory, Mustafi faced questions on the summer transfer window, which reportedly nearly saw him move to Inter Milan.

We produced an huge performance", Wenger said."We were not as bad as people said after we lost to Man City."When you lose people jump to conclusions, but we don't listen as much as you think to the national debate."We live in our own club and focus on what is important".

"If I have been talking to clubs or if I haven't, it's only rumours".

The 25-year-old was pushed further for an answer on where his allegiances lie, to which he replied: "But I'm here, I'm standing in front of you in an Arsenal shirt".


Sanchez and Mustafi scored the goals at the Emirates and the German defender says the performance against Spurs proved Arsenal can still compete with the Premier League's best teams. "As always, Arsenal is dead, Arsenal is not coming back. If you win today and lose next weekend you are back where you were".

Shkodran Mustafi had an outstanding game on Saturday, and, scoring the opening goal while also marshalling Harry Kane, was arguably Arsenal's man of the match. "We looked risky. Everyone played a part in the result". Key to Arsenal's impressive performance was a tenacity that ha often eluded them in the past.Even Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, two players' whose commitment has been doubted as they look to leave when their contracts expire at the end of the season, delivered fired-up contributions. Obviously, they are important and everyone in the team wants them to stay.

"I haven't seen the (offsides)", Wenger told reporters after the game.

"I can think of many games since the start of the season where we've had bad luck". How can they know if I have or haven't been talking to clubs?
