Arsenal have ended a long wait to equal a Premier League record after their latest win over Newcastle United at the Emirates Stadium on Monday night.

The Gunners beat Newcastle United 2-0 to record a 10th successive Premier League win at home for the first time since the North Londoners’ first title-winning season in the competition.

Arsenal have won 10 games in a row for the first time since the 1997/98 season.

Unai Emery and his players knew that any form of win would lift them above Manchester United and North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur on the table.

Arsenal thought they had taken the lead through stand-in captain Aaron Ramsey inside fifteen minutes only for centre referee Anthony Taylor to disallow the goal after Gunners defender Sokratis Papasthathopoulos was adjudged to have fouled Florian LeJeune in the buildup.

Ramsey was not to be denied his goal on the half-hour mark after he edged his side into the lead with a fine finish inside the Newcastle United box.

Arsenal added a second goal in the last ten minutes through Alexandre Lacazette as they wrapped up an easy win to take them to third place on the Premier League table with 63 points after 31 games this season.
