Arsenal 4-1 Newcastle Post-Match Facts

  • Joe Willock’s goal was Newcastle’s first away to Arsenal in all competitions since Ayoze Pérez’s strike in December 2014. It ended a run of 860 minutes without a goal for the Magpies at Emirates Stadium.
  • This was the fourth time Newcastle have conceded 4+ goals in a Premier League game this season – only in 2021-22 (6) have they done so in more different games across a campaign.
  • Arsenal have scored more goals from set pieces (19, excluding penalties) and more goals from corners (13) than any other side in the Premier League this season.
