Arsenal's Arsene Wenger blames Newcastle defeat on fatigue from Moscow trip

Arsene Wenger

As for Arsenal, they go on the attack with Wenger naming both Aubameyang and Lacazette in the team to start the match.

Alexandre Lacazette and Ayoze Perez traded first half goals as Newcastle stayed unbeaten at home in 2018.

And there were others who were enjoying themselves...

The Arsenal midfielder may have have ended up on the losing side, but the fault was not his.

Arsenal remains sixth with 54 points.

Europa League semi-finalists Arsenal will be hoping to make it four Premier League wins on the spin when they travel to Newcastle United this afternoon. That much is clear, given Wenger made six changes with a number of key players missing altogether, most notably Mesut Ozil.

"We concede two goals from nowhere".

On their poor away form, Wenger added: "Of course it's a concern".

Arsenal plays Atletico Madrid in the semifinals. Few players in England can move the ball with such accuracy and it begs the question: will he make it onto the plane for the World Cup?

Newcastle United: Dubravka; Yedlin, Lascelles, Lejeune, Dummett; Ritchie (Murphy, min. 86), Shelvey, Diame; Keney, Perez (Joselu, min. 79), Gayle (Slimani, min. 63). Subs: Murphy N/A, Slimani 8, Joselu 5. Subs: Welbeck 5, Maitland-Niles 5, Nketiah N/A. Arsenal ahead, Newcastle conceding their first goal at home since January.

With his goal against Leicester, Perez took his tally to four for the season in 30 games, with a further four assists. It's another pinpoint pass from Shelvey which finds Gayle high up the pitch.

Meanwhile, the Gunners almost slipped to an embarrassing loss at CSKA Moscow on Thursday, but late goals from Aaron Ramsey and Danny Welbeck earned them a 2-2 draw which secured a comfortable 6-3 aggregate victory.

Kenedy nearly made it three, his shot looping up and hitting the bar. So close to Newcastle's third!
