Reasons for the Gunners to be cheerful after their convincing victory.
Arsenal put last weekend’s aberration away at Stoke City behind them this evening to stroll to a 4-1 victory over Newcastle United at the Emirates Stadium, their second triumph by that scoreline in a week after a Champions League success away at Galatasaray.
It was a convincing display by the Gunners who had far too much for their in form visitors – so what positives can the fans take away from the game? We’ve picked out five:
The performance of Hector Bellerin
Teenage right back Bellerin has had some tough assignments covering for Mathieu Debuchy and Calum Chambers this season, but he seemed to come of age at the Emirates Stadium this evening and was one of the best players on the pitch. Well versed defensively and a huge threat on the break with his searing pace, Bellerin provided a fine assist for Olivier Giroud and looks a real prospect for the future.
