Arsenal moves to the third spot of the Premier League table standings following their 2-0 victory against Newcastle United at the Emirates Stadium.
Thanks to the goals from Aaron Ramsey and Alexandre Lacazette as they secured a much-deserved win which saw Unai Emery’s side equal the total points last season under Arsene Wenger with seven more games to play.
In addition, the triumph seal the Gunner’s 10th successive home league win for the first time since May 1988.
Not only that, Arsenal had leapfrogged two points clear over London rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United into third place to help them ensure their qualification for the Champions League.
“It was a big game. We knew it was going to be tough. The coach said we had to be patient and we did it today. We saw many videos. It’s always like this against Newcastle. I can feel the difference from last season. Now we may go to the Champions League. Me and Pierre are important for the team, like other players. Auba has helped me score many goals and I try to do the same. Why not go to the Champions League? I would like to score a lot of goals away. But if at the end we win it is the most important thing. We are more confident this season and everybody knows what we have to do.” Lacazette stated
Meanwhile, Emery was so proud with Arsenal’s impressive performance, togetherness and team performance following the 2-0 win.
We were good individually; our players gave us quality and they worked for the team. We were improving little by little and our first goal helped us a lot. We are making progress in the table, but we know it is difficult, Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester United are going to win a lot of games.” Emery addressed
