HALF TIME Arsenal 0-0 Newcastle
44' Joelinton wins a free kick in the attacking half.
41' Arsenal get a free-kick 30 yards out after Saint-Maximin fouls Ceballos and Luiz lines it up. But Pepe takes it, whips it over the wall and Dubravka tips it over.

37' Eddie Nketiah right footed shot from the centre of the box is saved.
35' Arsenal put together their best spell of pressure of the game as Newcastle desperately clear a succession of crosses from Saka and Bellerin. Nketiah came close to connecting with a few of those, but he couldn't quite fashion a goalscoring opportunity.
32' Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang left footed shot from the left side of the box is saved in the bottom left corner. Assisted by Mesut Özil.
29' Aubameyang has struggled to impact the game so far, but he finally finds a little space in the Newcastle half to slip Saka in behind, whose cross forces a corner that the away side calmly clear.

24' Xhaka surrenders possession cheaply on the halfway line, allowing Saint-Maximin to race forward into space before Rose crosses straight into the arms of Leno.

19' Newcastle are sitting deep in a highly structured system and Arsenal simply aren't passing with the intensity required to create openings.
14' Saint Maximin shows quick feet in the box to pick out Joelinton and the Brazilian spurns his effort wide.
13' Leno scrambling save to prevent Longstaff's deflected long-range effort from the next set-piece.
11' Ceballos, making his first start since November in the league, is embracing his new deep-lying role which should allow him to dictate play and spread passes out wide.

6' Joelinton receives possession in an isolated area on the left flank, but he proceeds to energetically burst past Mustafi before clipping in a deep cross to Lazaro who can't quite control it in the six-yard box.
