Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has heaped praise on Arsenal, after securing a 1-0 win over Newcastle.

The three points was to go Arsenal’s way, but Newcastle didn’t go down without a fight.

And Wijnaldum forced saves from Cech, with Koscielny’s second half goal, the only difference.

“Our legs were a bit gone today. We were tested today against a good Newcastle side,” Wenger said.

“To not drop points after the way we played today helped. Let’s focus on the fact we are in a strong position. Newcastle played well. We showed the mental aspect of our team and we will need that.

“We played against a very good Newcastle team. I’m long enough in the job to know they must feel very bad. But I would like to give them some comfort. They’ve got good players and for me they had a convincing performance.

“On our side, we’ve shown qualities that are more mental today – organisation, dig deep, wait for your chances and score a goal.

“It was a very tight game between two teams – one with confidence and one with a bit less and we won it.

“It tests your team on different aspects, more on a mental front than on a footballing front and tests how much you are ready to suffer to win a game when you’re not at your best.”
