Arsenal live updates
Laurent Koscielny maintains the Arsenal players knew exactly what was at stake if they had failed to beat Newcastle and missed out on another shot at the Champions League.
– Laurent Koscielny speaking to www.arsenal.com.
It is very important for the club to be in the Champions League.
The team played well and gave themselves for the team.
We are all good players and we want to play Champions League. It is a big competition. We did the job and we are happy.
Not something you see every day down your local Powerleague - Tottenham's Gareth Bale and Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain show off their considerable skills playing as ringers in an advert released today.
– Arsenal forward Theo Walcott
We just have great experience in knowing what to do when the time is right. It is funny. It happens every year.
We tend to finish very strong. I think it is just because the players want it so much.
It (Champions League football) is big for the future of the club and the players. We have been in it for the last 15 years and we don't want to be the players who are not part of that.
We just need to show that in the mid-season and at the start and we could hopefully be even higher than we are and not have this situation we are in.
But it is very positive, and we will be fighting strong on Sunday.
