Arsène Wenger described the contribution of Samir Nasri against Newcastle on Saturday as a "complete performance".

The midfielder followed up goals against West Brom and FC Twente with an outstanding display against the Magpies, much to his manager’s delight.

“I think he had a complete performance,” said Wenger. “He had a great touch on the ball, good vision and good team discipline.

“We like him to have the ball because we know, every time he does, he’ll do something with it. For me it's a sign of a player that, when he gets the ball, you’re happy.

“You don’t have to worry about the rest.”
