Auba, Elneny Fire Arsenal Past Poor Newcastle

 

Arsenal returned to winning ways as goals from Mohamed Elneny and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang secured a dominant 2-0 victory over Newcastle at St James’ Park.

Mohamed Elneny volleyed in his first Premier League goal inside five minutes before Aubameyang marked his first start since April 3 with the Gunners’ second midway through the second half.

Newcastle had moved to within touching distance of mathematical Premier League safety with a four-game unbeaten run before Arsenal’s trip to Tyneside but were completely outplayed, registering just a single attempt on target, before Fabian Schar’s late dismissal compounded a miserable outing for Steve Bruce’s side.

Arsenal’s first league win in three lifts them up to ninth and provides a timely boost ahead of Thursday’s Europa League showdown with Villarreal, while Newcastle stay 17th, nine points clear of the relegation zone with four games remaining.
