Arsene Wenger: "I think that from what I saw in the first half that Newcastle will get out of it.

"But the longer it lasts, the more dangerous the situation gets.

"I wish that Newcastle stay in the Premier League - I like the people here, I like the consistency of the support that the club has.

"I really wish they stay up.

"But it will be very close now because they only have eight games to go.

"I don't know how many games they play at home and how many they play away and who they play, but they have enough quality. They just need some results to go for them.

"On the evidence of the game, they certainly have enough quality not to go down."
