Emery's Arsenal Maintain Winning Streak With Victory Over Newcastle

Obviously he likes the attacking side of the game more.

"A very unselfish player, a lot of assists, does a lot of good work for the team".

The 29-year-old announced in June that he would no longer represent his country following Germany's disappointing World Cup campaign in Russian Federation, where they were knocked out in the group stage.

Defender Ciaran Clark did reduce the arrears with a header from Fernandez's injury-time cross, but it failed to prevent Emery's side gaining further momentum as Arsenal secured back-to-back league away wins for the first time in 16 months.

Arsenal found their form after their hard start to the campaign with three victories in three matches with the goals from Xahaka and Ozil in their recent match on the weekends.

Once again, Gunners goalkeeper Petr Cech looked ill at ease with the ball at his feet in his new "sweeper-keeper" role, with questions very much remaining over the Arsenal skipper's ability to play out from the back.

Ozil scored his first Premier League goal since December to help Arsenal beat Newcastle 2-1.

But the Gunners were resilient in beating Cardiff City 3-2 last time out and a similar steel was on show at St James' Park as they shook off their earlier jitters to ultimately emerge comfortable winners.

Ozil enjoyed a welcome return to form in his most recent outing - his 200th for Arsenal - with a positive response offered to Unai Emery's demands for him to give more during a trip to Newcastle.

"Maybe the second half we needed a bit more balance in the situation with our positioning on the pitch, Lucas gave us this balance", Emery said. Even Torreira made a couple of marauding runs into the box in the second half, ultimately causing havoc in the Newcastle defence.

"I want to give every player confidence".

"But like I said he's such a valuable asset to any team".

Emery shared those same feelings in his post-match interview after the game, although he admitted his side can improve on the performance.
