It was tough, a bit sloppy and extremely difficult at times but when all is said and done, Arsenal got their three points and the clean sheet away from home on Sunday.
Newcastle were formidable opponents and neither team really shone particularly more than the other. The Gunners had their Gabon talisman on their side, however.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was once again the difference-maker, bagging the only goal that separated the two teams after 90 minutes of fighting at St James’ Park.
Shortly after the triumph, Aubameyang took to social media and Instagram to celebrate the victory.
And it didn’t really take long until his teammates and other stars flooded to Instagram, congratulating Aubameyang on securing the victory for his team and just swarming him with great messages.
Joe Willock told him he actually saved Arsenal, which is very much exactly what happened while Mesut Ozil just told him he did well.
There were many others drooling over his performance as well. Alexandre Lacazette just said “thank you” while Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele replied with a series of emojis.
Next, Arsenal will welcome Burnley to the Emirates on August 17.
