Latics boss Roberto Martinez:
'We finally got the rewards our performance deserved'
'We started the game well, played face-to-face with Arsenal but then we began to lose the ball cheaply and the game was going away from us.
'Not many teams come back from 2-0 down against Arsenal, and the reason is the effort and belief the players showed today.
'Moments like this are vital for our club, are the reason why we are involved in football and what our fans deserved.
'To beat Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal in one season is something that doesn't come by accident, and I'm extremely proud of the players.'

'I believe we made mistakes and they took advantage of it.
'They were sharper than us in the final part of the game. I don't know what happened.
'It is as it is. It is difficult to swallow, but football is for 90 minutes.'
