54' Early question asked of Chambers as Ritchie swings a sumptuous cross in from the left towards Wilson which needs turning behind by the Arsenal substitute.

H-T Newcastle 0-1 Arsenal

35' Ceballos tries to slide through Aubameyang in the Newcastle penalty area but Clarke reads the danger well and clears.

30' Attempt missed.
Gabriel Martinelli left footed shot from outside the box following a corner.
28' SAVE!
Decent save from Dubravka as he launches himself to his left to turn Xhaka's left-footed thunderbolt over the bar for a corner.
26' Foul by Mohamed Elneny.

16' Nice footwork from Willian as he skips inside two challenges but his cute ball forward with the outside of his right boot is just behind Aubameyang and travels into the arms of Dubravka.
14' Chance for Arsenal!

Martinelli on the left slithers into the box and plays the ball to Aubameyang towards the near post and the Aubameyang's shot goes wide but it was a tricky opportunity for the striker.
12' Gabriel bundles Wilson over on the near touchline, handing Newcastle a free-kick which Ritchie whips into the Arsenal area. Fernandez gets his head to the cross, glancing it across the box, but Xhaka is on hand to collect and clear for the visitors.
