Arsenal v Newcastle - as it happened
Arsenal 4-0 Newcastle!! It was an easy win for Arsenal after the first 25 minutes of the match. Ozil and Lacazette's late goals added to the two early on in the second half to give Arsenal the three points. Clark and Saint-Maximin had chances to score at 2-0, but they were clearly second best in the second half. That's all from us, thanks for your company and see you again soon!
