The Gunners moved to within one point of Premier League leaders Manchester City. Martin Odegaard’s 25-yard strike opened the scoring before an own goal from Fabian Schar sent Mikel Arteta’s men within one point of league leaders Manchester City.
“This atmosphere is so beautiful,” said Jorginho, who joined Arsenal from Chelsea in January. “It motivates us to play and gives us fire inside. I have played a few [big games] before. We dream this as a kid and now it is time to enjoy it, it is beautiful.”
He added: “The most important thing is that we go home with three points, as we wanted. We know this league, we know we can’t win every game playing beautiful football.
“I am really pleased to see that our team can play these type of games and understand it is not always possible to just go through with passes. Sometimes you need to fight. I am proud to see us fight to the end.”
Newcastle, meanwhile, remain just three points above fifth-place Liverpool ahead of next Saturday’s visit to Leeds United.
