Arsenal edged past Newcastle thanks to a solitary Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang goal, but despite a far from convincing performance, it could prove to be a very important victory for the Gunners.

The Gunners kept just one clean sheet away from home all last season in the Premier League but with their 1-0 victory at Newcastle, they have matched that tally on the opening weekend of the new season. And while Unai Emery says there is improvement to come from his side, the Arsenal boss believes they can take great confidence from the result at St James' Park. "It's a very good three points," the Spaniard told Sky Sports.

Emery: We have different options on table

Emery: We have different options on table Unai Emery inferred Arsenal have several options on the table when he was asked about the Gunners' interest in Lille's Nicolas Pepe. Arsenal are confident of signing Pepe from Lille after agreeing a £72m fee for the winger, according to Sky in Italy, with Emery also insisting he only wants players to improve the squad and provide different options. Lille president Gerard Lopez confirmed on Friday that Napoli had agreed a deal for the 24-year-old winger, but Arsenal appear to have trumped the Italian side by offering superior terms.

Unai Emery believes Denis Suarez’s form over the international break has demonstrated he is ready to excel for Arsenal . Suarez played the full 90 minutes and created a goal for Carl Jenkinson in their 3-2 friendly victory over Al Nasr and Emery was encouraged by what he saw.

Emery encouraged by Arsenal win © Getty David Luiz was an unused substitute against Newcastle "We played a very solid game and controlled the game, but we can improve more because, in the first half, for example, we lost a few balls in the middle and gifted them some chances.

"The second half was quite similar but we scored and that was a very important victory for our confidence because we played with some young players to give them a chance to improve, to give them minutes with us and I think competitive action is important."

Nelson and Willock rewarded

The inclusions of Nelson and Willock meant it was the first time Arsenal had named two English teenagers in their starting XI for a Premier League game for the first time since February 1998 when Paolo Vernazza and Matthew Upson featured against Crystal Palace - before either Willock or Nelson were born.

Emery encouraged by Arsenal win © Getty "They deserved it from pre-season," he said. "Matteo Guendouzi also played a very solid game in the middle. "We need to work and play with every player. We need to give them chances and confidence but take every game seriously like we are doing. "For us, we need to continue. We have some injuries, some players out and I want to have a big competitive squad for every match, and I think we are going to need that."

Emery welcomes options

It's clear Emery wants plenty of options at his disposal for the new season and with Alexandre Lacazette, David Luiz, Nicolas Pepe and Gabriel Martinelli starting on the bench at Newcastle, he certainly has plenty. Emery also has Mesut Ozil and Saed Kolasinac to return while Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding and Kieran Tierney are currently unavailable due to injury. The trio are expected to feature in Arsenal's first-choice defence.

Unai Emery saluted Arsenal 's gritty 1-0 win at Newcastle on Sunday as the Gunners erased the painful memories of last season's away-day woes.

Emery encouraged by Arsenal win © Getty Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang celebrates opening the scoring for Arsenal at Newcastle It's an exciting prospect for Arsenal. "It's the first 20 minutes for Pepe and Martinelli," Emery continued said. "After that we could play with one striker or with two with Lacazette. Aubameyang can play in a front three on the wing, on the right or the left, or as a striker as he did against Newcastle.

"We can control the ball and we can give 10 chances to score. We want to do that and keep the balance defensively. We want to be strong but not lose the capacity offensive game plan."

'We must be strong at home'

Emery encouraged by Arsenal win © Getty Nicolas Pepe made his Arsenal debut against Newcastle Emery's focus has already shifted towards making the Emirates Stadium a fortress this season, starting against Burnley next Saturday. "Last year we lost our first away game at Chelsea but we won our next few games away from home," he added. "The team need to be serious and strong also in the balance between defence and offense.

"The players can take that confidence to play in our style and next week we are going to play at home, where we finished with two bad results and lost our opportunity to be in the top four. "We missed out at home where we were very, very strong. This year I want us to be strong at home and our first challenge is next week against Burnley."

Arsenal agree Koscielny move to Bordeaux

Arsenal agree Koscielny move to Bordeaux Arsenal have agreed a deal to sell captain Laurent Koscielny to Ligue 1 club Bordeaux for €5m (£4.6m). Arsenal head coach Unai Emery tried on numerous occasions to convince Koscielny to stay at the club, but sources in France say the 33-year-old has arrived at Bordeaux for a medical. The French international had stressed throughout the summer he wanted to return to his homeland and refused to go on the club's tour of the United States last month.

Arsenal new boy Lucas Torreira is a doubt to face Everton on Sunday after picking up an injury in Thursday’s 4-2 win over Vorskla Poltava. Torreira, who Emery claimed showed “passion” in the victory, had been pencilled in for his first Premier League start after just five sub appearances to date.

Unai Emery described himself as ‘happy’ as Arsenal beat West Ham 3-1 to pick up their first points of the new season.

Analysis: Plenty of positives for Emery and Arsenal

Sky Sports' Oliver Yew:

Emery encouraged by Arsenal win © Getty Granit Xhaka It wasn't a vintage Arsenal performance, but they got the job done. And they got it done comfortably. Arsenal fans would have been slightly disappointed at seeing new signings Pepe, Luiz and Ceballos named on the substitutes' bench ahead of kick-off, but Emery rewarded the likes of Nelson, Willock and Chambers for their impressive displays in pre-season.

And Emery was rewarded with a clean sheet and confidence-boosting away victory. There was also a first taste of competitive action for Pepe and Ceballos as Emery tries to get the pair up to speed for the rigours of the Premier League and in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, he has a ruthless goal scorer at his disposal. There are plenty of positives for Arsenal to build on going into next week's clash with Burnley.
