Asked if Arsenal went too far in their celebration after beating Liverpool, the Norwegian told Sky Sports: “No, I think everyone who loves football and understands football, they know how much it means to win this game.
“And if you’re not allowed to celebrate when you win, when are you allowed to celebrate? We’re happy and we’ll stay humble. After being at the top for so long last season, we always prefer to be at the top, of course.
“But we’re still in a good position, we showed today the quality we have in the team, in a big game, a lot to play for. It would have been a tough one for us to lose today – that would have left us eight points behind, but we really showed up and it was a great performance overall.”
