"We're a team that has pace and quality". I had a conversation with Lee about the players we maybe want to bring in and others who can go out.

Mesut Ozil's stunning first-half volley was enough for Arsenal to pick up a 1-0 victory over the Magpies at the Emirates Stadium, a result which saw Newcastle drop into the relegation zone courtesy of wins elsewhere for Crystal Palace and West Ham United.

The 27-year-old has been criticised by Magpies fans for his performances for the team this season.

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright told BBC Radio 5Live, "I think Newcastle would be the ideal club for Daniel Sturridge". "When you get to this stage of the season..."

"We need to get those points back on the board and continue from there", Elliot added.

"Normally we will not do it, and the players have also made a decision to cancel their Christmas party because they have taken responsibility and they think it's important to focus on football", the Spaniard said. It's a brilliant attitude and a great response but it's not what we need - we need points and we need to start finding a way to win. We had chances at the end and we stayed in the game and worked hard.

"We had our chances (against Arsenal)". They gave everything. We are where we are and have what we have.

"Our situation is that we did so well for a while (early in the season) that everybody was expecting that we could be in the top ten, but we knew that this team, coming back from the Championship previous year and doing the things that we did (ED: and didn't do...) in the summer, had to be near the bottom of the table".

"Two or three wins can turn the table 'round really quickly but we need to make sure that we show the same commitment and passion that we showed today (Saturday) and be a bit more ruthless in front of goal".
