The Magpies took the lead after 55 minutes when Joelinton broke down the left and delivered a low cross that forced an own goal from a sliding Ben White.

Callum Wilson went close on three occasions to doubling the lead, narrowly missing out on a wonder goal as a long-range volley dropped inches wide.

Instead, it was Bruno Guimaraes who scored the deserved second goal in the 85th minute, following up when Wilson was denied by Ramsdale.

Back-to-back defeats leave Arsenal in fifth spot on 66 points, two behind Spurs, with one match remaining each.

Newcastle’s second Premier League win in 19 matches against the Gunners takes them to 12th with 46 points.

Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta said ,
“It’s a really tough night. Normally, I can sit here and I can defend, but what we’ve done today, it’s not easy. Newcastle were one hundred times better than us in every department from the beginning to the end and it’s hard to accept to accept, but you have to accept it and that’s the reality of what happened today on that pitch.

We knew [what was at stake], but we didn’t cope with it. We didn’t compete, we never got into the game, we put ourselves in trouble time after time, we lost every duel. Every aspect of the game we were second best and Newcastle totally deserved to win the match, probably by a bigger margin as well.”
