PREMIER - Arsenal wins, Howe suffers first defeat in charge of Newcastle

Published on: 27 November 2021

Arsenal returned to winning ways with a 2-0 victory over Newcastle United on Saturday, handing Eddie Howe his first loss as manager of the Premier League strugglers.

In last weekend's 4-0 hammering at Liverpool, Mikel Arteta's team saw their 10-match unbeaten run in all competitions come to an end.

Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli scored second-half goals at the Emirates Stadium, giving them four wins in their past five league games.

Arsenal, who were written off following a bad start to the season, are now in fifth place, level on points with fourth-placed West Ham in the race for a Champions League berth next season.

After missing last weekend's 3-3 draw against Brentford owing to a positive coronavirus test, Howe was in command for the first time in person.

Howe, who was hired by Newcastle's new owners to replace the much-maligned Steve Bruce, will have been well aware of the magnitude of the task ahead of him on Tyneside.

On a very cold afternoon in north London, Amanda Staveley, co-owner of Newcastle United, sat hunched beneath a blanket in the director's box.

Howe's only focus is saving the Magpies from relegation.
