Arsenal's 2-0 victory over Newcastle on Monday Night Football has lifted the north London club into fourth place on 63 points with seven Premier League games left to play.

Highlights from Arsenal's win over Newcastle in the Premier League

The Bosnia international has made 26 appearances for Arsenal in all competitions under manager Unai Emery this season, and he says it is the Spaniard's attention to detail which is helping the team collectively improve.

"He's a very good coach," he said.

"Technically he works a lot with us and shows us a lot of video analysis. He picks up on things we aren't doing so well on. It helps us and brings us forward.

"It is nice for us to see what we can improve so we can discuss it and make sure we stop those mistakes in the next game. It's working well for us."
