Newcastle United 2-1 Arsenal – All The Goals & Best Bits

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, playing with Alexandre Lacazette for the first time since joining in January, crossed for the Frenchman who slotted in at the back post.

"You might see him sweating on the sidelines but inside I can guarantee he will be the calmest man in the stadium".

"If he gets the backing, he will stay at Newcastle United".

"It's very hard to combine the Europa League on Thursday night and the Premier League on Sunday afternoons", Wenger said.

'Pep was adapting to the Premier League last season and this time he has had a spectacular season.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has bemoaned the Premier League's decision not to implement VAR next season and warned it cold cost them a generation of fans. "Today we didn't play wonderful football because we played an awesome team, but you have to manage how you play and compete for the win".

Paul Merson expects Manchester City to be the team to beat next season following their crowning as the 2017/18 Premier League champions.

With Wenger's future in doubt, former players Adrian Clarke and Alan Brazil questioned whether Benitez would be a good fit at the Emirates, but Quinn set them straight and claimed that the Spaniard has lofty ambitions at St James' Park.

'People were saying with 35 we would be safe or with 38 we would be safe I kept saying 40, 41 points is virtual safety.

Benitez, who celebrates his 58th birthday today, said: 'We were not expecting to be in the top ten but at the same time I said we were dreaming, but we were awake and thinking that we could do it.

Arsenal supporters just want to count the trophies and they would take Sam Allardyce, never mind Rafa Benitez, if it meant winning the Premier League.

"I just think Arsenal fans want to see entertaining football and I know this might sound a bit silly...but they want to see teams who go out to win football matches".

"...but they do that now and they get murdered".
