The Gunners returned to winning ways on Saturday, beating relegation threatened Newcastle United 2-0 at the Emirates.
Bukayo Saka’s clinical finish and Gabriel Martinelli’s volley were enough to claim all three points in a bounce back to form following the thrashing at the hands of Liverpool.
The win put Mikel Arteta’s side level on points with West Ham in fourth, heating up what could be a great battle for the final Champions League spot.

There will also be a focus off the pitch on the upcoming January transfer window, which could be important in the Gunners making a push for a European place come the end of the season.
