Newcastle United have ended a 10-game losing run against Arsenal after they won 2-1 at home in their Premier League Matchday 34 clash at the St. James Park on Sunday afternoon.
The Gunners took an early lead through Alexander Lacazette before Newcastle United bounced back with a near post finish from Spanish forward Ayoze Perez as both sides played out a 1-1 draw at halftime.
