The defeat left Newcastle at the bottom of the table on six points, five points behind fourth-placed Leeds United.
Saturday’s match was the first time Newcastle’s new head coach Eddie Howe was in the technical field as he grapples with the task of ensuring the club’s Premier League survival.

Appointed earlier this month after Newcastle’s new bosses sacked Steve Bruce, Howe missed a 3-3 draw with Brentford after testing positive for Covid-19.

Arsenal deserved the win, a dominant performance that was rewarded with two beautifully picked second-half goals by Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli.

‘tough call’

It was Newcastle’s third Premier League match after the club’s controversial takeover by the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund (PIF).

Under the chairmanship of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, PIF owns 80% of the club, with the rest divided between RB Sports & Media and PCP Capital Partners, whose chief executive led the acquisition.

Newcastle head coach Eddie Howe is yet to see his team win after replacing Steve Bruce.

In the middle of Arsenal’s goals, Newcastle claimed a penalty when striker Callum Wilson fell in the box after a challenge from Nuno Tavares but play continued.

“The game was decided with Callum Wilson and a penalty – a tough call against us – then he scored,” Howe told BT Sport.

“Pace is very important in football. We need to get that win as fast as possible.”
