For the year, Martin Odegaard scored his 15th goal.

Arsenal defeated Newcastle United in a nail-biting match at St. James’ Park, cutting Manchester City‘s lead over them in the Premier League standings to one point.

The team led by Mikel Arteta, who has played one more game than the champions, responded admirably to the pressure created by Manchester City’s victory against Leeds United to win in an exciting game on Tyneside.

Newcastle got off to a fast start in an effort to boost their chances of qualifying for the Champions League next season, with Jacob Murphy hitting the post and having a penalty call reversed by video assistant refereeing.

Arsenal, however, showed their strength and it was inspirational captain Martin Odegaard who followed up his double against Chelsea in midweek by drilling his 15th Premier League goal of the season past Newcastle keeper Nick Pope from 25 yards after 14 minutes.

What followed was a magnificent game full of opportunities in a frenzied atmosphere, Pope saving crucially from Gabriel Martinelli, Bukayo Saka and Odegaard before half-time. Martinelli also struck the bar after the break.

Arsenal keeper Aaron Ramsdale also produced vital stops from Joe Willock and Fabian Schar, with Alexander Isak heading against the post, before The Gunners broke clear to wrap up the three points – Schar turning Martinelli’s cross into his own net in the 71st minute.
