Arsenal very logically beat Newcastle (2-0) after an almost one-sided meeting and comes back up to West Ham (4th with 23 points). Newcastle remain last in the Premier League.

The first half was very largely in favor of the players of Mikel Arteta, who had chosen to do without Alexandre Lacazette at the start of the match. A strike from Saka at the end of the race (16th), a superb free kick from Odegaard (18th) deflected, a recovery from close range on the post of Aubameyang after a first header from Smith-Rowe deflected by the goalkeeper, and a last opportunity thanks to the same Smith-Rowe in stoppage time (46th) should have allowed Arsenal to open the scoring. For Newcastle, only Shelvey had an illusion with two great strikes from afar (30th and 31st).

In the second half, the same domination of Arsenal, but with goals. The first by the English international Saka, who scored from the left (51st) after a festival in the area, before coming out on injury. Then it was Martinelli, his replacement, who scored the second end goal after a nice opening from the Japanese Tomiyasu. Lacazette came into play in the 76th to replace Aubameyang, transparent. But without really showing off.
