Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger pays tribute to the Gunners following their late flurry of goals to beat Anderlecht 2-1 in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Arsene Wenger has lauded the resilience of his Arsenal team after staging a remarkable comeback to beat Anderlecht 2-1 in the Champions League last night.

The Gunners snatched victory from the jaws of defeat after Kieran Gibbs and Lukas Podolski struck in the dying stages to cancel out Andy Najar's earlier opener in Belgium.

"We kept going and managed to score two good goals because we had the spirit and refused to lose the game," Wenger told Sky Sports News.

"Anderlecht played well tonight and you see that this country produces top-class players."

Arsenal are now well positioned to advance into the last 16 as Wenger's side sit second in Group D, three points behind Borussia Dortmund but five ahead of both Galatasaray and Anderlecht.
