Arsenal stars react to Newcastle win on Twitter: Mental win!

Giroud Arsenal

A number of senior Gunners have expressed their delight at the 1-0 win over Newcastle United on their social networks.

With Arsenal in a commanding position as the Premier League reached it's halfway stage, there were a number of ecstatic Gunners posting on social media.

Arsenal's lasting power has oft been questioned throughout the campaign, as has their ability to put fellow elite teams to the sword despite slaying Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

For Jack Wilshere and Olivier Giroud, what really spurred them on throughout the 90 minutes at St James' Park was the vocal support of the traveling fans.

While Aaron Ramsey is currently occupying the physio's room due to a hip/groin complaint and was unavailable for selection against the Magpies, he remained interested in the match, claimed the three point collection was a crucial one as it came against an in-form opponent (ten points from their a possible previous 12) and sees Giroud come out the other side of a six-week goal barren spell.
