Mesut Ozil reveals what he thought about Newcastle against Arsenal

"The way he is playing is very similar to what we were doing in Valencia or even in Liverpool. Rafael Benitez on Unai Emery

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. After, we were in the game, ' he added. "We'll see, the doctor said to check in a couple of days".

"I'm happy, but most importantly we took the three points".

The mercurial Ozil started his first match at St James' in any competition with the words of his boss Emery ringing in his ears after he asked the creative playmaker to give more in terms of his performances. "He knows what he wants and the team accepts that we have a good relationship".

Newcastle needed a response but Arsenal doubled their advantage nine minutes later when Ozil found the bottom corner from 18 yards out after Lacazette's initial goalbound effort had been brilliantly blocked.

It was Xhaka's first free-kick goal for the Gunners, from a distance where Ozil is normally the one in charge of set pieces.

"I've always been a big fan", Begovic said. "We try it a lot in training and I was happy to score".

After losing his first two matches in charge of the club, Unai Emery has guided Arsenal to three consecutive victories.

"The second half, the balance on the pitch was better". We didn't concede the transition as easy. All four of his Premier League goals have come from outside the box and, though he is more widely known for his combative attributes, this was a performance in which his creative side shone through, as further evidenced by his role in the second goal.

This time it was 19-year-old Matteo Guendouzi who was taken off, even though Emery insisted he was happy with the French teenager - who has been keeping Torreira on the bench so far.

"For me, every player is the same".

"I don't think it was not a big problem, but he was exhausted".

However, speaking after the win today, Emery eased those fears after telling reporters he doesn't think Ramsey's injury is anything serious as he feels the player is simply suffering from fatigue.
