Newcastle United vs Arsenal player ratings: Might as well be on Mars

Newcastle United

Newcastle came from a goal down to defeat Arsenal 2-1 and surely guarantee Premier League survival.

December 1984 was the last time the Gunners endured a run of five away matches in which they lost.

Alexandre Lacazette was able to latch onto a handsome Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang cross to fire home before Ayoze Perez levelled it up before the break.

Arsenal continued to look laboured in the second half, and were made to pay for their lethargy shortly after the hour mark when Matt Ritchie fired home from inside the box following good work from Perez.

The Gunners have now conceded the second-most Premier League goals under Wenger since he took charge of the club, with the most being in the 2011-12 season when they leaked in 49, and with six matches still left to play, they could catch up to that unwanted statistic.

Arsene Wenger has slammed a decision by Premier League clubs to not use VAR next season, calling the decision "very, very bad" and warning that it leaves English football "behind the rest of the world". Wenger criticised the decision after Arsenal were denied a possible penalty for handball in the first half of Sunday's 2-1 loss.

Comey feared making Clinton an "illegitimate president"
A report from Axios Saturday claims excerpts from his upcoming book indicate he believes he mishandled the Clinton investigation. Comey continued to serve as Federal Bureau of Investigation director under Trump until he was abruptly fired in May 2016.

It was the away side who emerged the more alert of the two at the start of the second half as they probed for space in between the Newcastle defence.

Wenger, who was also unhappy with a challenge by Magpies midfielder Kenedy on Alexandre Lacazette, added: "Every big game this season has been decided by mistakes that could have been avoided with VAR". Overall we played with a good spirit but with a bad result.

Traditionally we are strong away from home. "It's very hard to swallow". They face Atletico Madrid in the last four and will qualify for the Champions League if they win the competition.

Newcastle are nearly certain of being a Premier League club next season. "It has a subconscious weight in our mind".

When Arsenal signed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in January, it didn't seem to bode well for Lacazette whose inconsistency had already put him under pressure.
