Per Mertesacker has stated that the team should be looking to deliver performances like the one against Manchester United for the rest of the season.

The Gunners scored three times inside the opening 20 minutes at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday as United were blown away 3-0.

Mertesacker has said that he is glad that the Arsenal supporters enjoyed the quality of the team's football.

"We always want to give the fans special moments," the German told Arsenal's official website.

"A special performance was absolutely required after what happened against Olympiacos.

"[We were told to] do what we are best at and to go at full intensity, especially at home.

Have no regrets and to focus on our job which is to have good possession in the final third, and play with tempo and speed.

"It worked completely because we gave everything from the start without any hesitation and that is what makes people happy, seeing us play in that way."

Arsenal have moved above United into second place in the Premier League table.
