Newcastle United have taken their winless run to nine games in all competitions after their latest outing, a Premier League defeat to Arsenal in a week nineteen clash. At the game played on Monday night at the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal defeated Newcastle United 3-0 with three goals to get back to winning ways and seal a place in the top ten on the Premier League log for the first time in several weeks.
Arsenal had some good opportunities to take the lead in the first half but club skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could not find the back of the net with the goal gaping.Aubameyang hit the post as he came closest to netting the first goal of the game. Pierre-EmerickAubameyang didn’t let the miss affect him after he scored the opener on 50 minutes.
The Gabonese international captain benefited from the good work from fellow African Thomas Partey before he found the back of the net. Ghanaian international Thomas Partey produced an assist on his first start for the Gunners in almost two months. Before the Newcastle United game, his last start in the Premier League was in the North London Derby at the start of December. Partey limped off in the first half of that game.
England international player Bukayo Saka added a second goal for Arsenal on the hour mark to take the game beyond toothless Newcastle United who have scored just one goal during their winless run in all competitions. The Magpies are without a win in nine matches in all competitions since the 2-1 home victory over West Brom last month and they are also without a win in seven Premier League outings. Arsenal skipper Pierre-EmerickAubameyang scored his second goal of the game and the third goal for the Gunners after good work from Cedric Soares who started at right-back ahead of first choice Hector Bellerin.
