Arsenal moved level on points with fourth-placed West Ham United after enjoying a comfortable 2-0 win over Newcastle United on Saturday.
Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli scored in the second half as Mikel Arteta’s side bounced back from suffering a 4-0 defeat at Liverpool last week.
The result leaves Newcastle winless after 13 league games and rooted to the bottom of the table with new manager Eddie Howe.
