Manuel Almunia was in the thick of the action at St. James' Park on Saturday when he conceded - and then saved - a first-half spot-kick from Obafemi Martins.

After the game the Spanish goalkeeper spoke exclusively to Arsenal TV Online about the 3-1 win against Newcastle. He discussed:

  • the quality of the performance
  • giving away the penalty
  • pulling off the save from Martins
  • his recent penalty record
  • going 16 games unbeaten in the Premier League
  • the most important period of the season
  • why confidence is the crucial factor
  • targetting the top two
