The opening fixture of matchweek 4 was an entertaining encounter between Arsenal and Newcastle, yet dull on the goalscoring front. An own-goal from Toons’ captain Fabricio Coloccini was enough to ensure that the Gunners took 3 points back to London.
The match was marred by an awful lot of infringements by the Newcastle players but the North-London outfit was still able to create a lot of goalscoring chances. Here are the five key talking points from the match.
1. Arsenal still have the best attacking midfielders in the league
Another edition in the Premier League, and yet another extremely creative midfield for Arsenal. The Gunners still possess the most deadly attacking midfielders in the league and the most technical of playing styles in all of Europe.
The Gunners have created more chances than any other team this season until now and have had more shots on goal than any other outfit. Outstanding vision coupled with immaculate passing has been their strength for many seasons and will continue to be.
