While speaking to Sky Sports, Roy Keane claimed that Arsenal’s celebration after the victory was ‘ridiculous.’ He also slammed the club saying that their celebration seemed as if the club were 10 points clear on top of the Premier League points table.
The first half between Arsenal and Newcastle United ended goalless. However, striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang opened the scoring for the Gunners when Nicolas Pepe swung in a great cross. Aubameyang headed it into the net in the 54th minute.
Arsenal were not willing to settle down as they struck their second of the night just three minutes later. Nicolas Pepe struck into the bottom corner when Bukayo Saka slid a low pass towards Pepe. In the 90th minute of the game, midfielder Mesut Ozil showed great composure when Alexandre Lacazette struck a shot towards the German, who was quick to hit it past the net.
Arteta’s men were still not done for the night. Striker Alexandre Lacazette made it four for Arsenal in injury time after a sublime effort from Nicolas Pepe. The victory took Arsenal’s tally to 34 points in 26 Premier League games. The Gunners will next play against Olympiacos in the Round of 32 of the Europa League on Thursday (Friday night according to IST).
