Arsenal 3-0 Newcastle: Arsene Wenger says title was lost to injuries

Manager Arsene Wenger says Arsenal's title chances were halted by injuries earlier in the season, after their return to form continued with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Newcastle.

The Gunners went ahead when Laurent Koscielny prodded home Santi Cazorla's free-kick, before Mesut Ozil tapped in to double their lead. Olivier Giroud headed in the third and sealed a comfortable three points for the home side.

The result moves Arsenal four points clear of Everton and a step closer to securing Champions League football for next season.
