Newcastle United beat Arsenal 2-1, virtually assures EPL status

Kenedy of Newcastle United celebrates after scoring his sides second goal during the Premier League match between Newcastle United and Southampton at St. James Park

Willock, an England Under-19 worldwide, will make his Premier League debut at St James' Park in their midfield alongside Mohamed Elneny, Granit Xhaka, and Alex Iwobi.

Alexander Lacazette scored the first goal for Arsenal in the 14th minute of the game but goals from Ayoze Perez and Matt Ritchie in each half for Newcastle United sealed the Magpies' first home win in 13 years over the Gunners.

Arsene Wenger has questioned the Premier League's decision to delay the implementation of video assistant referees after Arsenal were denied a penalty against Newcastle United.

Arsenal have now lost all five away league games in 2018 - the worst record of any side in England's top four divisions.

Iwobi toe-poked a 21st-minute effort straight at Dubravka with the home side riding their luck, although had Shkodran Mustafi not got in a vital touch as Dwight Gayle controlled Jonjo Shelvey's ball over the top seven minutes later, they might have been back on level terms.

The Gunners felt that they should have had a spot kick when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's powerful shot deflected off the hand of Toon skipper Jamaal Lascelles.

Arsene Wenger's side took an early lead through Alexandre Lacazette, but Ayoze Perez equalised before Ritchie bagged the second half victor.

Calum Chambers had a great chance to restore the Gunners' lead before the break in very similar fashion to Lacazette's finish, but the full-back could only clip the outside of the right-hand post after stretching to meet Mustafi's header across the box. "Still feel you're capable of finishing above Burnley", - Match of the Day host and former Tottenham striker Gary Lineker fired over a sarcastic tweet as his former rivals sit sixth in the table and just two points above the Clarets.

It was nearly 3-1 a few minutes later when Kenedy was played through on goal by a great pass from Slimani but via a deflection from Mustafi, Kenedy'shot came back off the bar with Cech beaten. The danger isn't over as Lacazette finds Iwobi who shoots wide from an acute angle.
