Newcastle United v Arsenal Match Preview

Arsenal Transfer News: Kieran Tierney Nears £25 Million Gunners Switch

Arsenal agree fee with Celtic for fullback Kieran Tierney

"After equalling last season's away clean sheets tally in their first match of the 2019-20 campaign, Emery targeted more shutouts if Arsenal are to improve on their fifth-place finish from last time out".

Coach Unai Emery while reacting to the new signing said: "We're delighted Kieran is joining us". He'll have a hard debut as top-four hopefuls Arsenal visit St. James' Park. The Gabon striker scored 23 goals and helped keep Arsenal in contention for the top four throughout the season.

"I am glad that Laurent Koscielny has been shipped out, Carl Jenkinson has gone so the ones Arsenal don't need are going".

"We want them to be with normality in training and playing as soon as possible".

The Scottish global will come in to become Arsenal's new first choice left-back and I think he'll be an excellent addition to Emery's squad as he's been one of the best full-backs in British football in recent years.

"Our idea is to continue being one team, mostly offensive".

Here are five things we learned from the 1-0 win.

With David Luiz still to come into this team, should Chambers or Sokratis be displaced, and a midfield that can be bolstered by the dogged Lucas Torreira, these are positive signs for an Arsenal that will score a whole lot of goals. Up until that moment, Arsenal enjoyed most of the possession, but Newcastle United did well to apply pressure and forced many horizontal and backward passes.

The combative star - who earns £22,000-a-week (Spotrac) - was one of the club's best players last term, and against Arsenal he again showed his effectiveness in central midfield.

Newcastle clearly have a long way to go before being able to match the clear ambition Sinclair as for Bruce's spell in charge, with the pundit surely kidding himself with his comments. Holding out for £25m, the Premier League side had met those demands but not in a manner that satisfied Celtic.

"We defended fantastically well through the game - I don't remember my goalkeeper making a mistake".

Suddenly, in the 58th minute, Arsenal intercepted a pass out wide and Aubameyang was left wide open in the middle of the box.
