Newcastle United lost 2-0 away at Unai Emery’s Arsenal in Monday night’s Premier League clash thanks to Ramsey and Lacazette goals.

Newcastle United looked set up to cause a shock as they travelled to The Emirates on Monday night.

Rafa Benitez might never have won in Arsenal’s back yard throughout his storied managerial career but, with a well-drilled defence, pace on the flanks and an in-form front three of Ayoze Perez, Miguel Almiron and Salomon Rondon, the Gunners’ should have had plenty to worry about.

So you can imagine the disappointment among the Tyneside faithful then when the referee blew the final whistle with the scoreline standing at 2-0. Arsenal simply swatted aside a Newcastle side who were so under par at both ends of the pitch, Aaron Ramsey and Alexandre Lacazette on target in North London.

On a night of poor performances, DeAndre Yedlin was probably the worst of a bad bunch. The USA speedster produced one of his worst displays in Newcastle colours since he joined for £5 million three years ago (the Mail).

Yedlin provided nothing going forward, gave the ball away time and again. And to make matters worse, it was he who inadvertently set up Ramsey’s first-half opener. Maybe it is time Benitez started looking for upgrades.
