Arsenal boss Unai Emery saw his team win a tenth consecutive home game against Newcastle on Monday.
Aaron Ramsey and Alexandre Lacazette struck for the Gunners in the 2-0 win.
Emery said: “We played very consistent over 90 minutes. We didn’t concede any chances. We created and dominated the match. We are happy.
“Each match is very difficult – we got three points and did it our way.
“It’s a nice challenge to win consecutive matches. It’s a new history. We are creating our own way. We have created a big atmosphere here.
“We are in a good moment but each match is a new test. I hope Aaron Ramsey’s injury is not serious. The doctor is thinking it’s a small injury.
“We are improving. Today we can finish third, but the next match against Everton is difficult. Our rivals are going to win a lot of matches.”
