Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is overjoyed with his side's performance against Napoli in their 2-0 victory in the Champions League.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hailed his side's first-half performance against Napoli in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Goals from Mesut Ozil and Olivier Giroud in the opening 15 minutes proved enough for the Gunners to pick up maximum points at the Emirates Stadium.

"I felt that we played at a good pace, technically very direct and finished with great goals," BBC Sport quotes him as saying. "The first half was outstanding. The second half we played more with maturity, less with drive going forward, a bit more cautious, but overall and outstanding game.

"The first half was amazing, absolutely fantastic. Everything was in there, all that you dream to see when you come to watch football. We were solid.

"[Mathieu] Flamini and [Mikel] Arteta contributed to that, and overall it was positive because I wanted Flamini to be very good on the counter-attack, especially with [Aaron] Ramsey, and that worked very well."

Arsenal have won both of their matches in Group F.
