Last night, Arsenal added three points to their tally to make it five wins in last six games, and managed to keep five consecutive clean sheets for the first time since 2009.
Arsenal’s win over Newcastle moved them to 10th on the Premier League table and joined teams in the top half of the table, somewhere they have not been in months after a poor run of form in November and December last year.
After going into the half time goalless, the Gunners turned up their firing power in the second half of the match with skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring the opener in the 50th minute of the match.
Arsenal, who were clearly the better team on the night used their home advantage to stomp authority on this match, with the club’s player of the month of December Bukayo Saka scoring the second in the 60th minute after combining with fellow Hale End graduate Emile Smith-Rowe.
Aubameyang, whose second goal of the night in the 77th minute was Arsenal’s third, and his 300th career goal, put the game to bed. Arsenal will play Southampton next away at the St. Mary’s Stadium.
