Arsene Wenger joked Manchester City will want to sign more of his players after Arsenal delivered a knock-out blow to their title hopes.
Big-spending City bought Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri last summer and have got their sights on Robin van Persie but Wenger insisted their victory was not about revenge.
Gunners boss Wenger said: "You can take that both ways. Maybe they'll now want some others!
"I feel we have taken 24 points from 27 and the points we've got, many of them, have been deserved. We have improved as a team, 100 per cent for sure.
"Unfortunately, we started from too deep. We had a blip in January that cost us severely. We are nine points from City today so, even starting where we started, if we'd not lost our games in January, we'd be there.
"This gave us three points that we deserved. It was all us after 10 minutes of the second half. I always felt the goal would come, though it was also important we didn't lose it.
"At home recently we have produced some outstanding performances against any teams, so I'm happy that we got the win the team continues to grow in quality."
Wenger saw his team go above Tottenham into third place thanks to Mikel Arteta's late winner and now face a trip to Wolves on Wednesday.
Wenger added: "We know it will be a different game. Today was a game with a lot of hype and focus. They were going for the championship, we were going for a Champions League place.
"Now we'll be fighting with a team (Wolves) trying not to go down, and they'll be fighting to survive."
The only blow for Arsenal was a booking for Laurent Koscielny which means he is suspended for the next two games.
