Game Report

Highlights

A youthful looking Arsenal came away with the points in a tight contest at St. James' Park. Aubameyang's second-half strike was enough as Newcastle offered little in terms of a response.

Detail

Some fans stayed away in protest of owner Mike Ashley but this wasn't to affect the home side early on as they started the brighter. New signing Joelinton glanced an early header passed the post to lift the crowd.

The Magpies then came close again as Arsenal struggled to find their passing game. Jonjo Shelvey's rasping drive was turned onto the post by Leno.

Arsenal then found their feet and created a couple of chances before half-time. Mkhitaryan lashed the ball over the bar with the goal gaping before Aubameyang forced a decent save from Dubravka.

The Gunners were becoming more of a threat and took the lead on 57 minutes. Ainsley Maitland-Niles made a blistering counter attack run before finding Aubameyang who cooly lifted the ball over Dubravka.

Bruce brought on new signing Saint-Maximin to inspire a fightback and although he provided a few exciting moments Arsenal held firm for the win.

Summary

Newcastle showed in moments they can cause teams problems but overall were lacking any real imagination, the performance was reflected in the unrest from the Toon supporters. Arsenal weren't at their best but were clinical when it mattered and defended well to record an away clean-sheet, something they only managed once last season.
