Shearer: Torreira key to Arsenal win at Newcastle

Mesut Ozil then doubled their tally 10 minutes after to give Unai Emery's men breathing space.

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.

However, Arsenal were able to cope with the late blip to get their third successive win on the board, moving level on points with North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur. At Newcastle, Torreira was the difference and he galvinised the Arsenal team to victory.

Rafa Benitez was unable to get the backing in the transfer market that he would have liked this summer and this is proving costly for his side.

They remain in the relegation zone having picked up just one point from their opening five games.

The 48-year-old was clearly unhappy when reviewing the game on Match of the Day, where he made some controversial claims about Arsenal.

'Unique' Hazard can be Europe's best, says Sarri
Cardiff went into the global break with a 3-2 loss to Arsenal , a game that earned the Gunners their second win of the season. Chelsea are now second in the Premier League with 10 goals , and only defending champions Manchester City have more with 11.

In their third game, which was against West Ham United, coach Unai Emery did not include former Real Madrid midfielder Mesut Ozil into the squad and it widely drew interests from European media as they suggested Emery had problems with Ozil.

But instead of being offended, Wright had the ideal response to Shearer's comments.

The Gunners made it three wins on the spin after narrowly beating the Magpies at St. James' Park on Saturday afternoon.

That's all that needed to be said by Wright.

'The second half went very well for us and I think it was an important three points for us. We try it a lot in training and I was happy to score'.

"We need to work, every player - not only the attacking players but the midfielders and centre-backs from set-pieces". I want players when I change those on the field, and they are not in the first 11, to be angry... with ambition to play and help the team and to stay on the pitch.
