EPL English Premier LeagueNewcastle United 2-0 Arsenal

Newcastle United 2-0 Arsenal

The referee blows the final whistle to bring the 90-minute match to a close, with Newcastle winning 2-0.

Following a scoreless first half, the Magpies took the lead 10 minutes into the second when Saint-Maximin sent Joelinton down the left flank.

Wilson was waiting in the centre of the box when the Brazilian supplied the ball.

On the other hand, White was first to the ball and pushed it past Ramsdale into his net to score it 1-0.

Wilson missed a few chances to make it 2-0 before his team scored in 85 minutes.

Burn passed the ball to Wilson, but Ramsdale was first to reach it.

Unfortunately for the goalie, the ball was intercepted by Guimaraes, who scored to increase his team’s lead.

They came close to adding a third late, but Ramsdale could only tip Gayle’s low effort wide, and Newcastle won 2-0.

Starting lineup:

NEWCASTLE UNITED (4-3-3): Martin Dubravka; Emil Krafth, Fabian Schar, Dan Burn, Matt Targett; Sean Longstaff, Bruno Guimaraes, Joelinton; Miguel Almiron, Callum Wilson, Allan Saint-Maximin.

SUBS: Kieran Trippier, Jamaal Lascelles, Paul Dummett, Jacob Murphy, Ryan Fraser, Dwight Gayle, Federico Fernandez, Matt Ritchie, Karl Darlow.

ARSENAL (4-3-3): Aaron Ramsdale; Nuno Tavares, Ben White, Gabriel Magalhaes, Takehiro Tomiyasu; Martin Odegaard, Mohamed Elneny, Granit Xhaka; Bukayo Saka, Eddie Nketiah, Emile Smith Rowe.

SUBS: Salah-Edine Oulad M’hand, Zak Swanson, Cedric Soares, Alexandre Lacazette, Charlie Patino, Gabriel Martinelli, Nicolas Pepe, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Bernd Leno.

Goals:

The hosts take the lead!!! White puts the ball into his net after a Joelinton cross from the left. Saint-Maximin played the ball down the line for the Brazilian midfielder, who drove a delivery across the face of the goal. Wilson is waiting to finish it off until White pokes the ball past Ramsdale to make it 1-0.

It’s 2-0!!! Guimaraes doubles his side’s lead as Arsenal’s Champions League dreams appear in tatters. A through ball from Burn to Wilson sees Ramsdale rush out of his goal. The goalkeeper manages to tip the ball away from Wilson, but it ends up at the feet of Guimaraes, who fires home despite Cedric’s last-ditch attempt to clear it off the line.

So, what’s next?

Arsenal’s performance has left them two points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

Arsenal would have put themselves in pole position for Champions League qualifying with a win here.

Instead, on the final day, they will host Everton.

Still, a win won’t be enough if rivals Tottenham get at least a draw against already-relegated Norwich City due to the Gunners’ inferior goal difference.

Meanwhile, the visitors have climbed to 12th place and will go to Burnley for their last game of the season, hoping to end well.
