London, Nov 27 (IANS) Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger gave all thumbs up to his team after the English club defeated Borussia Dortmund 2-0 to reach last 16 of the Champions League.

"Overall it was a committed game. Maybe we were defensively better tonight. We are a team that likes to go forward - sometimes we feel we must dominate the game and we maybe forget to take precautions to defend. We did that better tonight," Wenger said Wednesday, reports Xinhua.

"Alexis Sanchez has unbelievable fighting spirit, a mixture of talent and desire. I like what Yaya Sanogo did as well. What he did on his first goal is class. Unfortunately, he got injured, though, and Mikel Arteta doesn't look good either - he has a calf injury. I think he will be out for a while. The injuries are difficult to take."

Wenger said his team deserves credit for maintaining consistency, "When you work in a football club you realise it's not easy to be consistent, so I'm very proud of the qualification record. I think also the club deserves a lot of credit.”

"It's not enough, we want more than that. What is important is that we are united. This team has a top-quality attitude and we have shown that today, after the disappointment of Saturday. What is important is what we do inside the club," he added,
