Arsenal legend Sol Campbell feels the Gunners have made their own luck following a late winner to beat Newcastle on Monday night, which was a fifth straight victory for Arsene Wenger's side, having come from behind four times in a row.

"The lads have shown a lot of spirit. You have to get a bit of the rub of the green, but that tends to come when you start being bolder on the pitch," former Gunners skipper Campbell, part of the 2003/2004 Invincibles side, told Arsenal Player at a Show Racism The Red Card event at Emirates Stadium.

"Gamble on your skill, gamble in the box, gamble in thinking: 'I am going to try this'. Start gambling your talent, basically.

"The more you bust a gut to win, the more you are going to see the crowd feed off that.

"You make your own luck, and against Newcastle there was a little deflection for the winning goal and the ball came to Vermaelen, but he was there because he busted a gut to get into the box."
