Arsenal‘s top-four push under Mikel Arteta finally ignited with a 4-0 victory against Newcastle United at the Emirates.

Both sides spurned chances in the first half before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang broke the deadlock after 54 minutes, leaping above Valentino Lozaro at the far post to head home Nicolas Pepe‘s floated cross.

Just three minutes later, Pepe then doubled the lead after a magnificent piece of skill by Bukayo Saka, the teenager nutmegging Lozaro by the corner flag before teeing-up the Ivorian’s sixth goal since joining the club.
