What a game. Arsenal thumped Newcastle United in a very one sided first half at St James’ Park in a game that looked effectively over within ten minutes. The travelling Emirates supporters must have thought they were in some sort of dreamland as goals from Theo Walcott, Johann Djourou and Robin Van Persie saw the Gunners go three up in under ten minutes.
Robin Van Persie scored a fourth for the Gunners before the half time whistle saved the Magpies from more of a mauling. The second half was an entirely different game as the Toon Army battled back into the proceedings. The home side were helped by Abou Diaby who foolishly lashed out at Joey Barton and was sent off.
Joey Barton scored a penalty soon after and then Leon Best scored a second to give Newcastle United a lifeline. Then Joey Barton put away another spot kick before Cheick Tioté levelled an amazing game.
