Following Arsenal's 4-0 thrashing at Anfield Stadium against Liverpool last weekend, this win was much needed to calm the nerves, and everyone involved with the club will be pleased that the squad delivered. On the basis of the Gunners' complete dominance over Newcastle, one might conclude that the visitors performed poorly.

The Gunners have 24 shots to Newcastle's 9, 6 shots on target to Newcastle's 5, 66 percent control to Newcastle's 34%, and 640 passes to Newcastle's 324.

Newcastle, on the other hand, did not play poorly. Eddie Howe's team, in fact, executed their counterattacking strategy admirably and attempted to frustrate Arsenal throughout the game. This resulted in a scoreless first half, but the difference was that the Gunners played near-perfectly.

Every facet of the game was flawless, including passing, pressing, progression, forward thrusts, and containing dangerous players like Allan Saint-Maximin, Miguel Almiron, and Callum Wilson. Mikel Arteta has been attempting to do this, and Newcastle United may consider themselves unlucky to be on the receiving end of a rare Arsenal perfect game.

Even Mikel Arteta and several of the other players who struggled against Liverpool did admirably tonight.

The Arsenal fans in the stadium were also fantastic, singing their hearts out in support of their team. All of this culminated in Arsenal's excellent performance. Everything worked out well, and fans will undoubtedly hope that it continues to do so.
