Roy Hodgson believed his Crystal Palace side deserved their point against Arsenal and hopes their improvements in defence continue.
Palace came away from the Emirates Stadium with a point after holding their hosts to a 0-0 draw.
Arsenal had been in resurgent form in recent weeks, but Palace managed to keep them out to earn an important point.
It left manager Hodgson content – and he even wondered if they could have got more out of the game.
“I’m more than satisfied,” he said. “A hard-working performance, we defended well and maybe with a bit more composure we could have scored a goal.
“We were playing a team in excellent form and we go away with a deserved 0-0.
“I thought the game was end-to-end and we are happy we took something away from the game.
“Two clean sheets in a row now. If you don’t defend well it is going to be hard to win games.”
Palace in midfielder hunt
Earlier in the day, transfer speculation linked Palace with a move for Huddersfield midfielder Lewis O’Brien.
The Championship side could sell the 22-year-old and Palace are said to be one of the contenders.
However, they are just one of three Premier League sides interested in a move.
