Comments:

League position: 10th Arsenal had now kept clean sheets in five consecutive games in all competitions for the first time since February 2009. Bukayo Saka became the first teenager to score five or more goals in the Premier League for the Gunners since Theo Walcott in October 2008. They had now won two of their last eight home games in the Premier League (lost four).

Comments:

League position: 15th Newcastle United remained without a win in their last nine games in all competitions (lost seven). The Magpies had now lost their first three league games of a year for the first time since 1989 in League Division One. They had now scored one goal in their last seven league and cup games.
