Arsenal

Arsenal defeated Newcastle at the St James’ Park stadium, thanks to Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil’s brilliant goals.

The game started in a lacklustre fashion as bothered sides couldn’t find a breakthrough in the search for the first goal of the encounter.

However, the second half witnessed more urgency from both teams as Rafa Benitez and Unai Emery made some important substitutions.

At the end, Unai Emery recorded his third win of the season but here are the lessons learnt from the enthralling encounter.

Mesut Ozil Proves His Qualities

Mesut Ozil has been criticised but for his impeccable attitude in all the games he’s played so far this season but today’s game witnessed the best of the player’s ability.

Though the playmaker – like all of his teammates – had a slow start to the game, the German international oozes class as the game progresses.

To put an icing on the cake, the 29-year-old scored the goal that ensured Unai Emery’s side picked the maximum three points.

Torreira Continues To Impress From the Bench

In the fifth time in a row, the Uruguayan midfielder has had a huge impact on the team’s result despite being a second-half substitute.

Despite fans desire to see Torreira in the club’s starting lineup, Unai Emery left the player on the substitute bench ahead of the encounter.

However, his introduction in the second period of the game brought the best out of his teammates as his display at the middle of the pitch was nothing but inspiring.

With tonight’s display, the Uruguayan is set for a deserved place in Emery’s first XI in subsequent matches.
