Arsenal were fortunate enough to win their game against Newcastle. Newcastle did all the work and the Gunners took all the credit.
The game was off to a bad start for the hosts, Newcastle, from an early stage in the match. Mitrovic was given a red card in the 16th minute of the game. That gave a red signal to their chances in the rest of the match!
The visitors were not able to take advantage of Newcastle’s dismay, so the home team did it for them. Coloccini netted an own goal in the 52nd minute! Arsenal was handed three points on a silver plate.
Arsenal got away with this one, but they’ll need to score goals if they wish to continue to rise. No major signing has been made in the transfer window yet, and it might just be what they need…
