Premier League

Arsenal players ranking last night against Newcastle

After drawing with Newcastle, Arsenal increased their lead over the Magpies at the top of the Premier League to eight points.

Both teams had limited opportunities to score, and Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta will be disappointed that his team was unable to overcome their resolute opponents.

Although Newcastle managed to keep Arsenal at bay and show why they have the strongest defense in the Premier League, both Gabriel and Gabriel Martinelli both had headers from set pieces go just wide.
