Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka scored the goals as Arsenal beat Newcastle 2-0 at the Emirates this afternoon.
Here’s what they had to say to BT Sport afterwards.
It was a comfortable win, but you had to wait.
Saka: Yeah, we had to be patient, they defended really well and made it difficult for us in the first half. The boss told us at half-time to not let them frustrate us, we listened to that, got the goals and could have got more.
A fantastic passing move for the goal
Saka: Yeah, it was. I came over to the left, we played a few passes, I found myself in and just went for goal and scored!
Martinelli scoring with his second touch after coming on?
Martinelli: I don’t remember to be fair. But I’m so happy with the goal and so happy with the victory.
As I always say if I play two, five, ten minutes, I’m always ready to play, to show something to the manager, the team and the fans.
First half chances missed. Was the message keep going?
Saka: Yeah, keep going, dealing with the deep block, so keep moving the ball fast and the chances will come and we took them so it’s a good day for us.
On everyone in the squad contributing
Martinelli: This victory was everyone, not just me and B who scored the goals, but the staff, the fans, everyone.
