Highlights: Newcastle 0-1 Arsenal

By on 11th August 2019

Arsenal kicked off their 2019-20 Premier League season with a narrow victory away to Steve Bruce’s Newcastle United on Sunday.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang produced a delightful finish just before the hour to score the only goal of the game in the northeast.

Gunners boss Unai Emery didn’t start any of his summer signings, but Dani Ceballos, Nicolas Pepe and Gabriel Martinelli were all introduced in the second half.

Newcastle produced just two shots on target over the 90 minutes during Bruce’s first game in charge. Record signing Joelinton had looked like a handful up front in the first half but disappeared after the break.

Arsenal were by no means convincing themselves but will be pleased to come away with all three points prior to hosting Burnley at the Emirates Stadium next Saturday. Newcastle fans have every reason to fear the worst under Bruce with performances like this.
