Newcastle United Vs Arsenal Highlights:A solo goal from Koscielny allows Arsenal on classifying into the upcoming Champions League by just edging their way into the 4th place spot with 1 more point than their nearest rivals Tottenham.
Arsenal played in Saint James’Park against Newcastle in what was one of their most important matches in the entire season as the final outcome of this game would decide which team could grab their place in the European tournament, either Tottenham or Arsenal.
Arteta had only recovered from an injury some days ago but Wenger decided to put him in nonetheless. Although this decision proved to be a bad one as he had to be replaced after 30 minutes by Oxlade-Chamberlain.
It wasn’t the best of performances for Arsenal in the opening 45 minutes as they barely even troubled Newcastle’s goalkeeper in any real occasion at goal. The most clear goal-scoring chances fell to the hosts but failed on actually scoring.
The only goal of the entire match arrived after 51 minutes when Mertesacker headed the ball into the path of Koscielny who blasted a shot past the goalkeeper Harper.
