Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang struck twice as Arsenal defeated Newcastle United 3-0 in the English Premier League (EPL) match played at the Emirates Stadium on Monday.
The victory for Arsenal condemned Steve Bruce’s side to a ninth game without a win in all competitions.
Aubameyang fired the Gunners ahead in the 50th minute, finishing off a counter-attack, running at the Newcastle defence and then blasting home a powerful left-foot drive at the near post.
Ten minutes later Bukayo Saka made it 2-0 with a confident slot home after good work down the left flank from youngster Emile Smith Rowe.
Aubameyang completed the comfortable victory after Cedric Soares got to the byline and pulled the ball back into his path.
VAR examined whether the ball had crossed the line before Cedric’s pass but allowed the goal to stand.
Arsenal have now kept a clean sheet in five straight games in all competitions. (Reuters/NAN)
