Premier League Arsenal smash Newcastle United for four to keep pace with Liverpool and Man City

Arsenal went goal crazy for the third Premier League game in a row to thrash Newcastle United 4-1, and keep pace with Liverpool and Manchester City at the top of the table.

A Sven Botman own goal on 17 minutes got the ball rolling before Kai Havertz added a second six minutes later, meaning that Arsenal’s 12-game unbeaten home record against the Geordies never really came under threat.

After the interval, Bukayo Saka scored for the fifth Premier League game in succession to end the contest midway through the half and Jakub Kiwior swiftly added a fourth as they clocked up 15 goals in their last three matches.

Even though former Gunner Joe Willock netted a late consolation, nothing could spoil a tremendous display from Mikel Arteta’s men.In rhe 17th minute Arsenal took the lead – albeit through a visiting defender.

The Gunners set-piece practice came to the fore again when Saka fizzed a dangerous delivery into the area for Gabriel to head goalwards powerfully, but Karius made a solid save to keep it out. However, his defenders panicked with the ball bouncing on their goalline, and Tino Livramento tried to clear but it struck Botman and Karius was unable to prevent the ricochet from crossing the line as Arsenal took a deserved lead.

That raised the decibel levels further, and six minutes later they reached record highs when they doubled our advantage. A gorgeous chipped pass from Jorginho over the backline fell nicely for Gabriel Martinelli who got to the byline and cut the ball back into space, which Havertz seized to finish a nice move and score in successive league outings.
