Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the only goal of the match. Arsenal kicked off the season with a 1-0 win over Newcastle United at St James's Park this afternoon.
The first half was quite balanced, even though Arsenal had the ball in possession of the ball, we had only one real chance to show it after Aubameyang had made a powerful effort saved. Joelinton glances his head.
Arsenal made a positive start after the break and opened the scoring in the 58th minute when Aubameyang chilled Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dúbravka after a superb job from Ainsley Maitland-Niles on the right flank.
From that moment, Arsenal controlled things, with Newcastle offering very few returns. Unai Emery featured Dani Ceballos, Nicolas Pepe and Gabriel Martinelli on the bench to tell them of their debut as Arsenal held on for a 1-0 away win.
Here are the highlights of the game:
