Twitter Reacts As Arsenal Lose Out To Newcastle At St. James' Park

Newcastle virtually assured its Premier League status for another season by coming from behind to beat a depleted Arsenal side 2-1 thanks to Matt Ritchie's second-half victor on Sunday.

Joe Willock will become just the fourth player born after Arsene Wenger's first game in charge of Arsenal to play for the club in the Premier League on Sunday.

Alexandre Lacazette was able to latch onto a lovely Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang cross to fire home before Ayoze Perez levelled it up before the break.

Wenger's side took an early lead through Alexandre Lacazette, but Ayoze Perez equalised before Matt Ritchie bagged the second half victor at St James' Park yesterday.

A 2-1 victory which ended the Europa League semifinalists' seven-game unbeaten run in all competitions took the Magpies to 41 points and, more importantly, 13 clear of the relegation zone.

Arsene Wenger believes the Premier League is "behind the rest of the world" following the decision not to implement VAR in next season's top flight. "We had 70 percent of the ball, were 1-0 up and in the end you lose 2-1 and you wonder how you can lose this game", Wenger told a news conference.

"It's a good opportunity for him and a good chance for me to see whether he's ready to play regularly at this level".


The north Londoners have conceded 45 goals in their 33 league games, which is one more than they managed in the whole of last season.

"But I felt overall today the fact we played on Thursday night, in the second half we couldn't raise the tempo and keep it up in the first half".

"Of course it's a concern because traditionally we have a very strong record away from home".

Alexandre Lacazette opened the scoring for the Gunners.

Arsenal plays Atletico Madrid in the semifinals. "I think it's very hard to combine Europa League on Thursday night and play again on Sunday". It has a subconscious weight in our minds.

The decision not to bring in the system next season was made at a recent Premier League shareholders meeting in London, when all 20 member clubs voted.
