  1. GOAL - Arsenal 4-0 Newcastle

    Alexandre Lacazette

    Done and dusted. It's a lovely ball in to Nicolas Pepe by Joe Willock and he slips it left to Alexandre Lacazette.

    He hits it first time, spinning it into the top right corner.

  2. Post update

    Hate to break it to you David, but Granit Xkaha did pick up a yellow card.

    Kiran E: Easy comfortable win, just what Arsenal needed. Newcastle pathetic, their 7-0-1 formation a one way route to defeat. Joelinton and Almiron had no chance with these tactics.

    David: I’m dreaming. Ozil scores, no Mustafi howler, no Xhaka yellow card and most importantly no VAR!

    Kenneth Gyang: How many passes are those? This is Wengerball at its purest!!

  5. Post update

    Arsenal 3-0 Newcastle

    Joe Willock wins the ball on the left touchline and drives towards the backline. Alexandre Lacazette is waiting in the middle, along with Bukayo Saka, but his cut-back is intercepted at the near post.


    Arsenal 3-0 Newcastle

    Six minutes of injury time in total. One already played.


    Arsenal 3-0 Newcastle

    That's his last contribution too. Mesut Ozil is replaced by Joe Willock.

  8. GOAL - Arsenal 3-0 Newcastle

    Mesut Ozil

    His first goal since April!

    It's a typical Arsenal goal - almost passed into the goal.

    Mesut Ozil is involved in the build-up. He slips it right to Alexandre Lacazette, who slips it through to Nicolas Pepe.

    He flicks it back around to Ozil in the middle and he pokes it into the net from close range.

    Paul: Steve Bruce has lost in past in games like today against a big club and blamed it on fact the other team had an expensive and therefore quality forward. He can no longer do that with the abysmal £40m joke that is Joelinton in his team. That guy wouldn't cut it in League 2.

  10. Post update

    Arsenal 2-0 Newcastle

    Jamaal Lascelles gets on the end of the corner but his header is comfortably saved.

    Arsenal break quickly - Mesut Ozil backheel flicking it into the path of Bukayo Saka on the left. He drills it across goal but Alexandre Lacazaette can't quite get there.

  11. 'Arteta pleased with Nketiah'

    Arsenal 2-0 Newcastle

    Lee Dixon

    Former Arsenal and England defender on BBC Radio 5 live

    Eddie Nketiah has put a shift in, which you'd expect.

    He's had a couple of chances and the one that hit the bar he was perhaps unlucky with.

    I think Mikel Arteta will be pretty pleased with Nketiah's work today.

  12. Post update

    Arsenal 2-0 Newcastle

    Sean Longstaff to Miguel Almiron to Allan Saint-Maximin. The cross is deflected out by Hector Bellerin for a corner.


    Arsenal 2-0 Newcastle

    Eddie Nketiah is replaced by Arsenal's Alexandre Lacazette.

  14. Post update

    Arsenal 2-0 Newcastle

    Matt Ritchie sees the hollywood sign and has a pop from way out. It's miles wide.

  15. Post update

    Arsenal 2-0 Newcastle

    Bukayo Saka is back on now too.


    Arsenal 2-0 Newcastle

    Lucas Torreira is on for Arsenal. It's Dani Ceballos, who has had a very good game, who goes off.

    Fabian Schar replaces the injured Ciaran Clark for Newcastle.


    Arsenal 2-0 Newcastle

    Bukayo Saka has been booked for that challenge. Bit harsh? He's got blood flowing from his nose too so has a tissue stuck up it.

    Ciaran Clark looks very groggy as he's helped off by two of the medical staff.

  18. Post update

    Arsenal 2-0 Newcastle

    Lee Dixon

    Former Arsenal and England defender on BBC Radio 5 live

    There's no doubt the best aspect of Bukayo Saka's game is going forward.

    I think he's got a lot of work to do if he's going to be a full-back in the long term but he's got a lot of potential.

  19. Post update

    Arsenal 2-0 Newcastle

    Bukayo Saka dances past one, then two, then three players with a weaving run through the middle.

    He loses his balance as he reaches the edge of the box and is blocked off by Ciaran Clark. Both players are hurt by it - it's a hefty challenge and it's Clark who has come off worst.

  20. Post update

    Arsenal 2-0 Newcastle

    Issac Hayden's ball in is over Joelinton but Hector Bellerin's header is poor. Allan Saint-Maximin pounces on it but Bellerin recovers to make the block.
