Match summary

16 Dec 2017
Arsenal 1-0 Newcastle United

Mesut Ozil scored a spectacular volley as Arsenal returned to winning ways with a 1-0 victory over Newcastle United.

The German's sensational strike gave Arsenal their first win in four matches and takes them back into the top four ahead of Manchester City v Tottenham Hotspur.

Arsenal started brightly at Emirates Stadium and after Alexandre Lacazette and Ainsley Maitland-Niles had chances, Ozil showed superb technique to loop a Newcastle clearance past Rob Elliot.

In the second half Alexis Sanchez and Jack Wilshere both came close to doubling the lead, which was threatened only when Newcastle's Joselu shot was deflected wide late on.

Arsenal's 10th straight PL win over Newcastle puts them five points behind third-placed Chelsea. Newcastle are winless in nine matches.
