Arsenal is Back in the PL Title race

Arsenal is back in the premier league title race a point behind PL leaders Manchester City, who have a game in hand.

Arsenal beat Newcastle 2-0 with goals from Odegard and an own goal from Newcastle’s own Schar. Arsenal once again showed a potent mixture of quality to return to the Champions League next season.

Mikel Arteta’s side, who have played one game more than the champions, responded superbly to the pressure exerted by Manchester City‘s victory over Leeds United to prevail in an action-packed, edgy encounter littered with chances on Tyneside.

Newcastle attempted to strengthen their push for a place in the Champions League next season with Jacob Murphy hitting the post and having a penalty award overturned by VAR.

Arsenal’s main concern was that they would suffer for failing to exploit one of the numerous golden opportunities in the first half, but thanks to Schar’s own goal, they were able to seal the victory.
