Arsenal’s Woes Continue As They Lose To Newcastle


Arsenal’s woes continue as their miserable Premier League away form goes on. They took the lead at Newcastle – but eventually lost 2-1 at St James’ Park. It’s now five straight top flight defeats on the road.

Alexandre Lacazette opened the scoring for the Gunners. Ayoze Pérez and Richie nabbed the leveller and winning goal for the Magpies.

Newcastle are almost certain of being a Premier League club next season. They’re into the top half of the table – and now sit 13 points above the relegation zone.

Arsene Wenger says he’s worried about Arsenal’s away form this season. ‘Of course it’s a concern. Traditionally we are strong away from home. It has a subconscious weight in our mind. It’s the story of the season. 70 per cent of the ball, 2-1 up.’

The Gunners boss continued, ‘You wonder how we lose the game. We concede two goals from nowhere. Second half I feel some players paid a bit physically from having the game on Thursday night. We played with good spirit but a bad result is the outcome. It’s very hard to swallow.’
