Arsenal has won the English Premier League. Arsenal beat Newcastle 3-0 last night. Pierre-Emerick Obamayang scored twice for Arsenal.

The first half ended in a goalless draw, with Pierre scoring the first goal in the 50th minute to give Arsenal the lead. Bukayo Saka scored a goal in the 60th minute of the match. Pierre scored the second goal in the 77th minute to give Arsenal a comfortable 3-0 victory.

With the victory, Arsenal has reached the 10th position in the table. Arsenal, with 27 points from 19 games, are 10th behind Aston Villa. Newcastle, who lost to Arsenal, are 15th in the table. 

Aubameyang, who had earlier hit the post from a tight angle in the first half, opened the scoring in the 50th minute when he fired past Newcastle goalkeeper Karl Darlow.

Arsenal doubled their lead as Emile Smith Rowe’s pullback found Bukayo Saka and the England international side-footed the ball into the net.

Aubameyang, 31, got his second and the Gunners’ third after Cedric Soares, in his first league start of the season, got to the byline and set up the striker.

The Gabon international scored 29 goals in all competitions last season, including 22 in the Premier League, but he had previously struggled for goals in 2020-21.

This double took his league total to five for the campaign and boss Mikel Arteta was pleased to see Aubameyang return to form.


“He needed that for his confidence and the team needs that to be successful,” said the Gunners manager.

“We were missing his goals, we all know that, so to have them back is great for the team.”

Miguel Almiron had Newcastle’s best chance but shot over from the edge of the penalty area when it was goalless.

The victory takes Arsenal above Aston Villa into 10th, with the Gunners seven points adrift of fourth-placed Liverpool in the last Champions League qualifying spot.

Newcastle are 15th, seven points clear of 18th-placed Fulham, although the London side have a game in hand.

For Bruce, who faced calls for his resignation after last week’s 1-0 loss to bottom-of-the-table Sheffield United, his side have now not won in nine matches in all competitions.
