Share post:

Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli were on Saturday on target as Arsenal beat Newcastle at Emirates Stadium.

Both sides started slow with Newcastle blocked two crucial chances when Shelvey’s shot was tapped by goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale and off for a corner sending both side to a barren draw at the end of the first half.

Arsenal came back revamped and creating many chances before Bukayo Saka broke the deadlock in the 56th giving the host a deserved lead.

Brazilian youngster Gabriel Martinez made an instant impact after coming in tapping in Tomiyasu ball and doubling the lead for Mikel Arteta.

The win sends the Gunners fifth in the table with 23 points and 6 behind league leaders Chelsea who will face Manchester United on Sunday. Newcastle stay bottom of the table with six points from 13 matches.

It was a relief for Mikel Arteta who was coming from a 4-0 defeat against Liverpool raising questions into the depth of his squad if they want a top finish this season.
