Arsenal got their title bid back on track with a 2-0 win against the Magpies at St James’ Park on Sunday afternoon.

The Gunners survived an early onslaught before opened the scoring and forced an own goal in the second half to wrap up the points.

Arsenal threw away leads against Liverpool and in April, which has left them trailing Manchester City in the title race.

But Jorginho was included in the side on Sunday and the former Chelsea star brought a calmness and composure to Arsenal’s midfield in the north-east.

‘The reason why players and have said Paul Scholes is their favourite player was because in moments in the hardest atmosphere in a difficult away game those players are unique,’ Neville told the .

‘They have the composure, the balance to get the team playing.

‘That’s what reminded me of – he was fantastic. Arsenal have gone up a lot in my estimation [on Sunday] as I didn’t expect that. I expected them to fall.

‘Those Manchester City players will go to bed, not panicking, but it’s a little dig in the ribs. They will have wanted a cushion going into the Real Madrid game.’
