- Arsenal answer questions over resilience to stay in title hunt
- Arteta: ‘The prize is not too far away. Let’s keep going’
Mikel Arteta said he was “proud” of his Arsenal side’s game management as they maintained their Premier League title challenge with a hard‑fought win at Newcastle on Sunday.
Although Eddie Howe’s players complained consistently of time wasting on the part of Arteta’s players, most notably the midfielder Granit Xhaka who repeatedly fell to the floor with supposed injuries Newcastle regarded as delaying tactics, Arteta had no complaints.
