Lacazette reveals Arsenal are 'confident' of top four finish after Newcastle win

Arsenal fast starts custom image

Their abysmal results have coincided with Unai Emery's men hitting a rich vein of form at the ideal time, which leaves them now in a strong position to return to the Champions League next season.

At that stage, Newcastle were still in the game despite never seriously threatening Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno, but Lacazette secured the win when he ran onto a header by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and lobbed the ball over goalkeeper Martin Dubravka.

"Our challenge is away because we are going to play five matches away in the last seven matches".

"I can feel the difference in the atmosphere from last season, now we can maybe go to the Champions League". In February, Emery stated that the German had to be "consistent in training and in matches, without being injured or sick".

"Mesut is playing like we want, with the system and tactically. He is working a lot and after that work he is also giving us his quality".

Arsenal beat Newcastle United 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium to overtake Tottenham and move into 3rd place in the Premier League table on Monday.

He remains important to Arsenal manager Unai Emery, however, and was handed the armband against Newcastle in the absence of regular captain Laurent Koscielny, who was out injured.

"We were playing key matches against Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea".

No details were provided about exactly when the report would be released, or what it might contain. The Boeing 737 Max went down shortly after take-off from Jakarta, killing all 189 people on board.

"I am disappointed because we knew it would be hard, we knew we could lose", he said.

"Today, being consistent and also taking a big performance".

Aaron Ramsey scored the opener before going off in the 67th minute with what Emery described as a "small injury".

Matt Ritchie made a terrific goal line stop when a free-flowing move from Arsenal saw Alexandre Lacazette spin to lash a shot on goal in the first minute of first half stoppage.

"We were improving little by little and our first goal helped us a lot".

Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Cazorla said: "Arsenal have adapted to the big change and are doing very well with Emery".

"But if we concede the first goal the way we concede the first goal was not ideal and if you don't take your chances and you are not precise against these teams then you'll struggle".
