Mesut Ozil on Arsenal win: 'Happy' to leapfrog Spurs in standings

Arsenal, who were 10 points behind Tottenham at the start of February, are now two points clear of their north London neighbours with seven matches still to play. "We are happy", Lacazette told Sky Sports.

"Also individual moments and skills, he has the capacity to help us". We are working and being competitive.

Afterwards, Lacazette said: "It was a big game tonight, a tough game".

"We are making progress in the table but we know it is hard", he said.

It is their home form that has kept the Gunners' Champions League hopes in their own hands - indeed, they have not been beaten on their own turf in the top flight since Manchester City won 2-0 back in August.

"It's, of course, our objective (the top four)", said Emery.

Fourth-placed Tottenham are tied on points with Manchester United in fifth and Chelsea are a point further back in sixth. He is giving us his quality, his energy, his behaviour to push. Our supporters at home are very important and we can be stronger together.

Emery was also happy with the performances of Ramsey and Mesut Ozil, adding: "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". It's a new history.

"It's a big challenge for us to continue in this way".

The win boosts Arsenal into third place in the Premier League, while Newcastle is 14th.

"We played against a good team and were fine for a while in the first half. We could avoid their goal, it was a little bit lucky", he reflected. I think we are more confident and everybody knows what they need to do.

Arsenal's dominance of the ball continued after the interval, but chances seemed hard to come by, with Dubravka making his first save of the match 73 minutes in from a stinging shot by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
