"We needed to work had, we didn't in the first half but much more in the second half - defending and playing counter attack against a really good team".

Willock, an England Under-19 worldwide, will make his Premier League debut at St James' Park in their midfield alongside Mohamed Elneny, Granit Xhaka, and Alex Iwobi.

Arsenal's bench has plenty of youth about it too off the back of their 2-2 draw in Russian Federation against CSKA Moscow on Thursday, which secured a place in the Europa League semi-finals.

Realistically, Arsenal already had no chance of making the top four and Wenger had been prioritising their Europa League campaign for several weeks.

After taking the lead, the visitors took control of the game for the next ten minutes or so and they nearly got a second goal when a good passing move ended with Alex Iwobi forcing a good save from Martin Dúbravka.

Just moments after he was left writhing on the turf following a crunching challenge from Kenedy, Lacazette exacted revenge.

Arsene Wenger, whose primary focus is on the Europa League, started Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang together for the first time and the duo combined to break the deadlock 14 minutes in at St. James' Park.

Perez delivered a fine finish for the goal, drifting in at the near post to glance home a right-wing cross from DeAndre Yedlin.

The Spanish forward's third goal in his last three appearances was a clinical effort, but Wenger would have been furious with how easily Newcastle carved open his defence.

Calum Chambers should have put Arsenal back in front towards the end of the half, but he pushed an attempt wide as he slid in to meet Mustafi's header. "Still feel you're capable of finishing above Burnley", - Match of the Day host and former Tottenham striker Gary Lineker fired over a sarcastic tweet as his former rivals sit sixth in the table and just two points above the Clarets.

Ayoze Perez equalized for Newcastle in the 29th.

74' - CROSSBAR! Lovely and effective link-up play from Slimani and Kenedy allows the latter through on goal and his shot is deflected onto the frame of goal by Mustafi.

Slimani was again in the thick of the action soon after as he found Perez in the area, who tried twice to hit the target, and came close at the second attempt with a shot into the side-netting.
