A huge win at St.James Park thanks to a fabulous Martin Odegaard performance got Arsenal within touching distance of Manchester City who do still happen to have a game in hand. Arsenal refuse to give up in their pursuit of the PL title and have notched up 2 straight wins against Chelsea and Newcastle. Arsenal confirmed a top 2 finish with the away win and for the first time in 15 years, crossed the landmark of 80 points. A fabulous season that deserves to be capped off with a title win continues for the Gunners who have a tough challenge in Brighton next.
Newcastle managed to still dominate the majority of the game, keeping 54% possession against a side that heavily depends on possession play and relentless attacking. But it was Arsenal who managed two fabulous attacking transitions to get a massive win at the Magpies’ home ground. Martin Odegaard got Arsenal off to an amazing start with a stunning goal that silenced the home crowd. Gabriel Martinelli’s run from an extremely quick counter attack got Arsenal their second goal after a Fabian Schar own goal which wrapped up the match for good.
