Spain international Juan Mata credits Chelsea's "character" after the Blues hold out for a 2-1 Premier League win over Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.
The 24-year-old put the Blues ahead in the sixth minute and Frank Lampard doubled the lead from the penalty spot 10 minutes later.
Mata praises their "defensive resolve" as a "quality" Arsenal team got back into the game through Theo Walcott but could not prevent Chelsea winning their first home Premier League game of 2013.
