Arsenal picked up just their seventh Premier League triumph of the season with a quick-fire second-half double to break Newcastle’s resistance at Emirates stadium.
The Gunners are the division’s draw specialists this campaign having been held 13 times and it looked to be going the same way once an unsuccessful first-half.
But the hosts sprung into action straight off once the restart with Eddie Nketiah’s no-look strike from Nicolas Pepe’s step-down clipping the top of the crossbar.
Mikel Arteta’s side busts the dead-end on fifty-four minutes through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s well-placed header and Pepe doubled the lead simply three minutes later with a neat, first-time finish.
Mesut Ozil poked in a very third late on from substitute Alexandre Lacazette’s pass and also the Frenchman converted a fourth in injury-time.
Newcastle tried to play any forward after conceding but was restricted to few opportunities – the damaging Allan Saint-Maximin coming closest with a curling strike that rattled the post.
Arsenal’s win moves them up into the top half of the table in tenth place – six points behind north London rivals Tottenham, who claimed a last-gasp winner over Aston Villa moved fifth.
