Match reactions Reading v Arsenal
This is what the personalities on each side had to say to say after Reading's 3-1 defeat to Arsenal at the Madejski Stadium.
Reading manager Steve Coppell told the BBC, "The first goal was critical. They had a lot of possession but they didn't create a great deal and they were getting frustrated.
"We talked about getting hurt on rebound from our corners and set-pieces and, lo and behold, they score from it.
"We found it hard to get back into game when their confidence started flowing."
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger told the BBC, "The players have shown they can cope with the pressure.
"This was the best test - would we have the nerves to deal with being the last team to play (over the weekend) with people expecting us to drop points?
"It was good that we just played the game like we are used to. We could have scored more goals."
