Wenger delighted with win

Arsene Wenger was pleased with Arsenal's 1-0 win over Portsmouth and the contribution of William Gallas.

Wenger insisted he does not want to sell any players in the transfer window and praised the controversial Gallas, who he stripped of the captaincy after the players' criticisms in his controversial autobiography, for what was a timely winner.

Wenger said: "He answered everybody by his performance on the pitch and that's what you do when you are a great player. He started as a striker and looks most likely to score at set-pieces. He has good timing to attack the ball."

The Arsenal manager also believes his injury-hit side have received more unfair flak than any Arsenal team he has managed.

He said: "The team are maturing and have shown great mental strength in the past few weeks.

"No team since I have been here have got as bad publicity and I don't think it is fair because they have got great character."

You could say the same about the Arsenal crowd, who gave Adams the most affectionate of receptions before singing the obligatory 'One-nil to the Arsenal.'

Adams acknowledged the chants but said: "It comes back to haunt you. I thought it was one-nil to the lucky Arsenal today."
