Alan Shearer reveals ONE player responsible for Newcastle win

Asked if Arsenal would benefit from the former Germany international's decision to retire from worldwide football, Emery said: "It's a new way for him".

Granit Xhaka set Arsenal on their way to victory over Newcastle on Saturday, but only after he was given permission to take a stunning free-kick by Mesut Ozil.

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.

It was another tough 90 minutes to endure for Spanish manager Benitez, whose side remain in the bottom three with a single point, equalling their lowest tally after five games of a Premier League season.

"I think Manchester United and Chelsea will both battle it out to sign him if they feel he is seriously considering leaving Arsenal".

Newcastle had the better of the first half but could not test keeper Petr Cech often enough to get themselves in front, and they were made to pay within four minutes of the restart when Xhaka curled home a fine free-kick.

He simply responded with a slight grin on his face: "Oh, we were better than you today Al".

"He has to continue helping with his quality and working hard to continue with the performances we want from him".

Emery said: "In the first half, we couldn't control the match like we wanted and we needed that control to impose our ideas, our possession and our positioning".

"We need to improve and score more individually".

'The second half went very well for us and I think it was an important three points for us.

"Also when the left-back and the right-back are arriving in the box we want to give them chances to score but normally, our attacking players will do more in the future".
