Unai Emery vows to play his strongest team in the Europa League

Unai Emery is hoping to reap the benefit of Mesut Ozil's international retirement

Once again, Gunners goalkeeper Petr Cech looked ill at ease with the ball at his feet in his new "sweeper-keeper" role, with questions very much remaining over the Arsenal skipper's ability to play out from the back.

Emery shared those same feelings in his post-match interview after the game, although he admitted his side can improve on the performance.

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

Star playmaker Mesut Ozil has retained his place in Emery's starting eleven.

"I have a very good relationship with Mesut and professionally I push him for improvements to give us the best in his qualities and performances".

He said, "We score and we are happy, even the players that don't play, we are all team".

He scored the Gunners' second goal on what was his first ever appearance at St James' Park.

Hayden was far from the only poor Newcastle player on the day but when you would have expected him to be busting a gut to make up for his red card in Wales, he never gave off the impression of someone who was looking to do that and as a result Arsenal controlled the centre of the park which ultimately was the difference. "We need to impose our ideas, but we conceded a lot of chances for the counter-attack", said Emery.

Emery also dismissed any issue with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after the striker appeared to show frustration at being substituted for Henrikh Mkhitaryan late on adding: "It's normal, I want the players I change or don't start in the first XI to be angry, they have ambition to play and help the team ad stay on the pitch".

Ramsey failed to complete the full ninety minutes as he limped off to be replaced by Danny Welbeck in the 80th minute sparking concern the midfielder had picked up an untimely injury problem.

"That defeat hurt me more than the Tottenham one, or the Man City one, or the Chelsea one, because I don't think Arsenal are that good a team".

"I don't think it was not a big problem, but he was exhausted".

Arsenal host Ukrainian side Vorskla in their opening Europa League Group E clash on Thursday.

"One challenge is to have better performances away, to be more competitive, to have chances to win".
