Newcastle United 1-2 Arsenal: Xhaka, Torreira and Ozil shine to give Gunners three points [Tweets]

Arsenal won their third game in a row, beating Newcastle United 2-1 at St. James’ Park on Saturday, thanks to goals from Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil.

Arsenal dispatched Newcastle United at St. James’ Park to take all three points, in what was their third win on the trot. Unai Emery and Arsenal fans will be particularly happy with the result considering the Gunners sit level on points with North London rivals Tottenham after Spurs lost to Liverpool at home.

After a drab first half, where neither team could create a clear-cut chance, Arsenal burst into life in the second half with goals from Granit Xhaka and later from Mesut Ozil, who was making his 200th appearance for the club. The Gunners though, were undone in their quest to keep a clean sheet after Ciaran Clark scored towards the end of the game.

Xhaka and Ozil though, were hailed for their contributions, as the duo silenced their critics quiet effectively.


And then there was the match winning goal from Ozil…

Lucas Torreira drew a lot of praise as well, as he changed the game upon his introduction at half-time.
