Without shining, Arsenal ensures the essentials

Latest Football News – Arsenal start well season. The London club won on the pitch of Newcastle (0-1), Sunday afternoon, during the first day, and began its 2019/2020 exercise. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the only goal of the game before the hour mark (58th).

It’s only the first day. But after the successes of Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham, a counter-performance of Arsenal on the Newcastle pitch Sunday afternoon would have been unwelcome. Fortunately for the Gunners, Aubameyang has unlocked the situation in the second half, before the hour of play (58th), after a hard game on the part of the London club (0-1). Nicolas Pépé and Allan Saint-Maximin made their debut at the start of the Premier League with their new colors.

At St James Park, Unai Emery preferred to let his rookies (Pepe, Dani Ceballos and David Luiz) and his players not yet 100% physically (Alexandre Lacazette) on the bench at kickoff. Coincidence or not, his eleven, very young, was shoved in the first period. Admittedly, Mkhitaryan (23rd) and Aubameyang (31st) had a great opportunity each. But the Magpies were more dangerous. Jonjo Shelvey hit the post (20th) while Joelinton was threatening (17th and 26th).

Arsenal raised the slider after the break

Accustomed to make substitutions at the break, the London coach has this time trusts its holders. Well, he took some. On a good service from Maitland-Niles, Aubameyang delivered his own just before the hour of play (0-1, 58th).

In a second, much duller act, Saint-Maximin (67) and Pepe (71) played their first minutes in England. The new Newcastle player was the most prominent but his ballistic provocations failed. Without shining, the Gunners have provided the essential: three points that allow them to pick up the championship championship.
