LONDON : Mikel Arteta praised his side's patience as they moved right into the mix for a top-four place with a 2-0 Premier League win over Newcastle United on Saturday.It had looked like being a frustrating afternoon for Arsenal as they sought to rebound from last week's 4-0 hammering at Liverpool, a result that ended a 10-game unbeaten run.

But Bukayo Saka slotted home in the 56th minute and Gabriel Martinelli sealed the points 10 minutes later shortly after coming on to replace the injured Saka.Victory moved Arsenal level on 23 points with fourth-placed West Ham United who face champions Mancheter City on Sunday.

The only bad news for Arteta was the injury to Saka who had been Arsenal's best player."I am happy with the points after losing last weekend. You have to win straightaway. Overall, I'm pleased," Arteta said."The word was we had to be patient. We had to play with urgency and rhythm. That's what we did in the second half. We found spaces and that's how we scored the goals." headtopics.com

Arteta made one change from the side that lost at Liverpool with Alexandre Lacazette making way for Martin Odegaard who came close with a first-half free kick."You have to trust them and give them confidence after difficult moments," Arteta said."I thought they needed another chance and they've done it today."

With a game at Manchester United looming on Thursday, Arteta will have an anxious wait over Saka."He was uncomfortable to continue. We will have to probably scan him tomorrow and see if there's any injury there," he said.(Reporting by Martyn Herman, editing by Ed Osmond)
