Newcastle end Arsenal record

After falling to defeat at the hands of Newcastle, it has been revealed that Arsenal have failed to score in all competitions for the first time this season (17th game). Newcastle were also the first team to stop the Gunners from scoring in the Premier League last term (0-0 in January).

Newcastle’s only goal of the game came in the 64th minute via Anthony Gordon but the ball did appear to go out of play in the build-up.

VAR checked the goal but still let it stand after a lengthy review, something Mikel Arteta was not happy with in his post-match press conference:

“We have to talk about the result because you have to talk about how the hell this goal stands ups and it’s incredible,” Arteta said. “I feel embarrassed but I have to be the one now coming here to try to defend the club and please ask for help, because it’s an absolute disgrace that this goal is allowed; it’s an absolute disgrace.”

“Because it’s not a goal for many reasons; it’s not a goal, for more than one reason at least. It’s not a goal and it’s too much at stake here.

“We put in so much effort, it’s so difficult to compete at this level, and it’s an absolute disgrace. Again, I feel embarrassed having more than 20 years in this country, and this is nowhere near the level to describe this as the best league in the world. I am sorry.”
