Newcastle manager, Eddie Howe, has said his side were able to beat Arsenal on Monday because they exploited the Londoners.

The Premier League game played at St James Park saw an own goal from Ben White and strike from Bruno Guimaraes to end 2-0.

The win sees Newcastle on the brink of attaining top 10 finish this season,

“It was a brilliant all-round performance. We played with intensity and never let up. We approached the game in a brilliant manner and we did the Premier League proud tonight,” Howe said at his post-match press conference.

“The one thing missing from us was that we had not beaten a top-six team and we deservedly beat them.

“We wanted to press Arsenal and not let them settle into a rhythm but also for the first time in recent performances we saw a team that could have the ball comfortably and be creative. Arsenal competed well and fought well but they left spaces for us and we exploited them.”
