Arsenal hosted Newcastle at the Emirates in an early afternoon kick off. Mikel Arteta's boys were a better side compared to the Magpies with the likes of Bukayo Saka, Smith Rowe, Martin Odeagard and Aubameyang being the stars in the first half keeping Newcastle's backline busy. Arsenal had a couple of chances just before the half term break.
Arsenal's captain Pierre Emerick Aubameyang who has scored in 6 of his last meetings with Newcastle came close to scoring just before the half time after Dubravka punched away Smith Rowe's header but unfortunately hit the post.
Arsenal kept up their momentum in the second half and Bukayo Saka gave Arsenal the lead in the 55th minute from Tavares cross.
Shortly after the goal, Bukayo Saka was subbed for Gabriel Martinelli for he looked injured. The Brazilian youngster doubled Arsenal lead shortly after being introduced from the bench. Tomiyasu provided the assist for the second goal.
Arsenal returned back to winning ways and managed a clean shit against Newcastle.
