It does not feel that long ago that Arsenal trailed Tottenham by 10 points. What a turnaround there has been. This was a hard-fought victory over a Newcastle team who made a game of it in the second half but, when the dust had settled, the table showed Unai Emery’s team had leapfrogged two points clear of Spurs and Manchester United into third place.
Aaron Ramsey fired Arsenal into a deserved first-half lead and, although Newcastle pushed, they did not threaten Bernd Leno’s goal. Alexandre Lacazette made the points safe with a perfectly executed lob and it added up to a 10th league win in succession at the Emirates Stadium. Not since the 1997-98 title-winning season have Arsenal managed that. “Are you watching Tottenham?” sang the home support.
