Lord Sugar reacts to Arsenal victory the same way he did after Palace win

Lord Sugar

Arsenal defeated 10-man Newcastle United 1-0 at St. James’ Park in the Premier League today.

Former Tottenham Hotspur chairman Lord Sugar has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to Arsenal’s win against Newcastle United away from home this afternoon.

The Gunners returned to winning ways in the Premier League, as they got the better of the Magpies 1-0 at St. James' Park.

An own goal from defender Fabricio Coloccini seven minutes into the second half proved to be the difference between the two teams.

Newcastle played most of the game with 10 men following the sending-off of striker Aleksandar Mitrovic in the 16th minute for a rash challenge on Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin.

Former Tottenham chairman Lord Sugar was following the match, and he felt that Arsene Wenger’s side were lucky to pick up the three points in Newcastle.

Interestingly, earlier this month when Arsenal defeated Crystal Palace 2-1 away from home at Selhurst Park in the Premier League, the former Spurs chairman felt that the North London outfit were lucky then (click here to read more).

Over the course of the 90 minutes at Newcastle, Arsenal had 74% of the possession, took 22 shots of which nine were on target and earned nine corners.
