Arsenal 4 Newcastle 0 – Watch official match highlights here as NUFC collapse after decent first half
It ended Arsenal 4 Newcastle 0 on Sunday afternoon.

A completely different story after the break though.
Arsenal shaking off the lack of confidence from only two wins in their last 17 Premier League games.
Once the first goal went in nine minutes after the break, it was curtains for NUFC.
The Gunners didn’t even have to be that good, just leaned on the visitors and the opportunities came.
