Arsenal lack a killer instinct 0

Posted on December 17, 2017 by David Nugent

The Arsenal players like to make life interesting for their supporters. Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Newcastle at the Emirates Stadium was a good example of that theory.

Arsenal looked in complete control in the first half and Newcastle barely threatened the Gunners goal. However, Arsenal failed to score a killer second goal.

As it is near the season of giving, the Arsenal defence decided to give the visitors some great opportunities to something from this game. Fortunately, for the Gunners, Newcastle could not find the net with a SAT NAV at the minute.

Arsenal produced a narrow 1-0 win against Newcastle at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon, with a sublime Mesut Ozil effort the difference in the game.

The Gunners had the first attempt on goal on three minutes. Alexandre Lacazette played a one-two with Alex Iwobi before firing a low drive towards goal that Rob Elliot got down to save.

At the other end of the pitch, Petr Cech had to be alive to save Jamaal Lascelles far post header. Full-back DeAndre Yedlin saw an effort from 20 yards out fly well over the bar from the resulting corner kick.

As games go, this is the best and worst match that Arsenal could have hoped for. The visitors to the Emirates Stadium are Newcastle United, who are in desperate need of a win this weekend as their battle with relegation worsens with every single game.

Arsenal are winless in their last three following a defeat at the hands of Manchester United and draws with Southampton and West Ham. This has seen the side fall down to seventh in the league, a point behind Tottenham in fourth. Of course, a single win could see them rise back into fourth, but along with Spurs, Liverpool and Burnley are also jostling for position, meaning competition is high.
