Arsenal resurgence continues with 2-1 win at Newcastle

"I really enjoyed playing with him because he made me better on the pitch and he's a great guy off it, too". The midfielder said, "I am very happy to play for Arsenal and especially for the new coach".

Asked if Arsenal would benefit from the former Germany international's decision to retire from global football, Emery said: "It's a new way for him".

"We score and we are happy, even the players that don't play, we are all team".

Hayden was far from the only poor Newcastle player on the day but when you would have expected him to be busting a gut to make up for his red card in Wales, he never gave off the impression of someone who was looking to do that and as a result Arsenal controlled the centre of the park which ultimately was the difference.

However, the first half saw the Gunners with no real discernible midfield plan, or any strategy at all to test Dubravka No saves to make until that 49th minute and by the final whistle he still hadn't made a save, two shots on target and two goals.

Ten minutes later Ozil doubled the lead by calmly slotting home after a spell of prolonged pressure in and around the box as Emery's side took charge. At Newcastle, Torreira was the difference and he galvinised the Arsenal team to victory. We didn't concede the transition as easy.

Ciaran Clark pulled one back for the hosts in stoppage time but Arsenal would cling on to secure another three points. "It was not a big problem, but he was [too] exhausted to continue".

The 28-year-old played 180 minutes for Wales against the Republic of Ireland and Denmark during the recent global break and Emery thinks Ramsey is just feeling the effects of playing too much for his country.

In spite of their decent recent form, Unai Emery's side can't afford to drop any more points as they look to qualify for the Champions League after a recent absence.

After the game, Ozil was asked about his relationship with Emery.

"I don't think he could get into the Manchester City and Liverpool teams, but it would hurt Arsenal fans to see another of their superstars leave to a Premier League rival".

"Normally I will use a different keeper for this competition, but I'm thinking about the best performance", Emery said.
