Premier League LIVE: Saka & Martinelli fire Arsenal 2-0 against Newcastle; The Gunners move 4 points clear of Wolves while Newcastle stay bottom – Arsenal produce a strong second-half performance to defeat Newcastle United 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium in their Premier League clash. Bukayo Saka put the Gunners ahead with a fine finish before Gabriel Martinelli scored his first Premier League goal at the Emirates in 22 months to secure the three points for the Gunners. The Magpies did feel aggrieved as referee Stuart Atwell did not award a penalty after Callum Wilson went down in the box amid pressure from Nuno Tavares with the score at 1-0, while seconds later Martinelli added a second for the hosts.

Eddie Howe tasted defeat for the first time as Newcastle manager, but there were some positives to take forward, even though the Tynesiders remain winless this term. Newcastle stay bottom again with the side failing to claim maximum points in all their matches so far in the Premier League.

FULL-TIME: ARSENAL 2-0 NEWCASTLE UNITED

Scorers: Saka 56′, Martinelli 66′

Arsenal cut Newcastle open twice in 10 second-half minutes to make it a disappointing debut in the dugout for Eddie Howe.

After Aaron Ramsdale was forced to tip a Jonjo Shelvey strike onto the bar, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missed an unbelievable chance before the break when the ball fell his way two yards out but he skewed his effort off the post and wide.

Arsenal’s 1st Goal: But the opener finally arrived after half-time when a neat passing move on the left saw Nuno Tavares slip Bukayo Saka in and he drilled into the corner from a tight angle, although the joy was short-lived for him as he was substituted shortly afterwards with an injury. Stuart Attwell was in charge of the game.

Arsenal’s 2nd Goal: His replacement didn’t take long to make an impact though as Gabriel Martinelli raced through moments after Newcastle were denied a penalty to volley in beautifully the first time from a Takehiro Tomiyasu pass as Arsenal’s other full-back claimed an assist.
