Good day for Arsenal, not so good for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

The two goals scored by Arsenal were sumptuous, as Bukayo Saka scored the opener from a very tight angle. After he limped off the field, Gabriel Martinelli was brought in for Saka and the young Brazilian scored a fantastic volley with Takehiro Tomiyasu getting the assist.

This defeat brings Newcastle’s points tally to six from thirteen games and the club remains at the bottom of the Premier League table after failing to score in their seventh successive match. This was Eddie Howe’s debut match for the club and Newcastle fans will be wary of the way the club is going right now.
