Arsenal, Liverpool, City Battle For Supremacy

Arsenal secured their sixth consecutive Premier League win, narrowing the gap on leaders Liverpool to just two points with a commanding 4-1 victory over Newcastle United at the Emirates.

Mikel Arteta’s revitalized team, coming off a 1-0 loss to FC Porto in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League last-16 match on Wednesday, dominated a lackluster Newcastle United side. The visitors were unable to muster a single shot on goal in the first half.

Sven Botman unintentionally scored an own goal in the 18th minute, following a brilliant save by goalkeeper Loris Karius from Gabriel’s header off Bukayo Saka’s corner.

Kai Havertz then doubled the lead six minutes later, finishing off Gabriel Martinelli’s cross. Saka displayed impressive dribbling skills to score the third goal in the 65th minute, while Jakub Kiwior wrapped up the scoring from Declan Rice’s corner four minutes after that.

Substitute Joe Willock headed a consolation on 84 minutes.

Arsenal remain third in the table with 58 points from 26 games, but are only two points behind Liverpool and one behind reigning champions Manchester City, who are second after a 1-0 win at Bournemouth.

Newcastle is currently in eighth place with 37 points from 26 matches.
