Arsenal FC came back from a thrashing at Anfield against Liverpool FC last week with a 2-0 victory over Newcastle United FC on Saturday evening. In the second half, Bukayo Saka was met by Nuno Tavares' excellent pass, and the England international made no mistake in slotting home past the Newcastle United FC goalie. Bukayo Saka contributed to the win against Newcastle United FC with a series of dribbles and eye-catching moves, but the young attacker was injured and replaced by Gabriel Martineli, who scored in the 65th minute of the game thanks to a brilliant ball over the Newcastle United FC defense by Takehiro Tomiyasu.
Arsenal FC needed a win against Newcastle United FC to rebuild their confidence after losing to Liverpool FC, but there is still a clear weakness in the team that the coach needs to address immediately before facing Manchester United FC on Thursday night.
Arsenal FC failed to start the game at the required pace against Newcastle United FC, which made it difficult for them to break down the Newcastle United FC defense. They improved in the second half to score two goals, but if they are to win against Manchester United FC on Thursday, they must learn how to start games at the required pace.
Another flaw Arsenal FC must address ahead of their match against Manchester United FC on Thursday night is their habit of slowing down after scoring a goal. In fact, in all of the Premier League games that have been played so far, Arsenal FC has failed to score more than three goals in a single match. Arsenal FC lacks the cutting edge to stay on the front foot when ahead by one goal, but if they want to beat Manchester United FC on Thursday night, they must address this issue immediately.
