EPL: We deserved to win – Arteta reacts to 4-1 win over Newcastle

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has hailed his players following a 4-1 win over Newcastle United in the Premier League on Saturday.

Gabriel’s header from a corner was knocked into his own goal by Sven Botman.

Gabriel Martinelli cut back for Kai Havertz to make it 2-0, before goals from Bukayo Saka and Jakub Kiwior.

Arteta said after the game: “We had a great performance. Big credit to the boys with just two and a half days to prepare. The way they executed everything, the determination, aggression, they played with a lot of courage. I think we fully deserved to win the game.

“They are finding ways to score in various ways. It is very satisfying, we could have scored many more today. There are still some things we have to improve and get players back.

“Credit to the staff to recover the players but I could sense it from the moment we were in Porto we were ready for the game. It’s great to see that reaction, and the support in the stadium and we go again.

“The team is hitting form, we’re in a good moment. Players individually are performing, we score one and we want to go for the second, third and fourth and I love that mentality. We didn’t have enough courage in Porto to do what we did today.”
