Final Score

Newcastle 0-0 — 0
Arsenal 1-0 — 1


Arsenal will head into the international break on a positive note as an own goal by Fabricio Coloccini gave the Gunners a 1-0 win at St. James’ Park on Saturday.

The win gives Arsenal seven points from four matches while Newcastle remains winless with two points. The Magpies were handicapped early in the match when Aleksandar Mitrovic got sent off in the 16th minute, and Arsenal made their numerical advantage count with plenty of chances and possession.

Newcastle racked up six yellow cards in addition to Mitrovic’s red, meaning a mandatory fine from the English FA is coming.

Aleksandar Mitrovic Got Sent Off for Newcastle Early in the Match

The Magpies’ cause was not helped early in the match when Aleksandar Mitrovic received a red card for this challenge on Francis Coquelin.


Theo Walcott Missed From 2 Yards Out

Arsenal applied the pressure early and often, but lacked the cutting edge in front of goal. A shot from distance is parried by Newcastle goalie Tim Krul right into the path of Theo Walott, but he can’t control the rebound and fired well over the goal.


Arsenal Broke Through Early in the 2nd Half Behind Newcastle Own Goal

The Gunners dominated the entire first half without being able to score, but early in the second half they got a break to take the lead. A shot by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain took a rapid deflection off Fabricio Coloccini and went past Krul for the goal.

New signing Florian Thauvin opened his account with this goal in the Capital One Cup in midweek, and will likely be in the starting lineup against Arsenal.

Thauvin cost $20 million from Marseille and is widely regarded for his playmaking ability. The 22-year-old has been capped at every age level for the French national team and is on the fringe of making his debut for the senior team.

The Gunners have injury concerns ahead of the trip to St. James’ Park. The center back pairing of Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny are once again expected to miss out through injury after missing the Liverpool match.

Arsenal were drawn into the Champions League group stages this week; they will meet Bayern for the third time in four years, along with Olympiakos and Dinamo Zagreb.
