Newcastle United put on arguably their best performance against top-four chasers Arsenal during Monday night’s Premier League encounter at St James’ Park.
Eddie Howe’s Magpies were on fire from start to finish. Clearly, the better of the two sides in every single area of the pitch, the Geordies out-muscled, outran and outpassed Mikel Arteta’s Gunners all night.
An own goal from Ben White set the tone for the game before midfielder Bruno Guimiares scored the Toon’s second late in the second half.
Eddie Howe’s side’s performance has seriously dented the Gunners’ hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
Newcastle’s Trippier trolls Arsenal
Bitter-rivals Tottenham Hotspur, who narrowly beat Burnley one-nil last weekend, now sit in the fourth spot, two points clear of their rivals with just one game left to play.

Posting on his official Instagram, the England international rubbed salt into Arsenal’s wounds.
