Arsenal vs Newcastle LIVE! Premier League result, match stream and latest updates today

Rampant Arsenal remained hot on the heels of the top two in the title battle with an emphatic 4-1 victory over a struggling Newcastle United side in the Premier League on Saturday.

An own goal by Sven Botman and a simple Kai Havertz finish put Arsenal 2-0 up at the break before Bukayo Saka and Jakub Kiwior struck to wrap up the points. Joe Willock came on to score a consolation for Newcastle.

The victory took Mikel Arteta's third-placed side to 58 points after 26 games, two behind leaders Liverpool and a point adrift of Manchester City, who earlier won 1-0 at Bournemouth.

Arsenal have scored 15 goals in their last three Premier League games and the win over Newcastle was the perfect tonic following their late 1-0 loss at Porto in a disappointing Champions League last-16 first-leg display in midweek.

Arsenal 'living the dream' after thumping Newcastle, says Odegaard

23:35 , Jonathan Gorrie

Martin Odegaard says Arsenal are “living the dream” as they thumped Newcastle to keep up their title charge.

Arsenal were 4-1 winners over Newcastle and they could have won by more, such was their dominance.

The victory means the Gunners are just two points off League leaders Liverpool, while Manchester City are only one point ahead of them in second.

Red-hot Arsenal turn on the style in Premier League title race

22:21 , Jonathan Gorrie

Arsenal’s Champions League hopes may have taken a dent this week, but their title charge shows no signs of slowing down.

This 4-1 win over Newcastle made it five Premier League wins in a row for Arsenal and, such was their dominance, it could have been more.

Arsenal drew a blank in Porto on Wednesday, but there is no denying they have found their goalscoring touch in the League.

During four League matches in February, they have scored 18 goals. Manchester United have managed 36 all season.

Arsenal’s red-hot form means they are keeping pace in the title race and they are well and truly in the fight.

With 12 games to go, they trail leaders Liverpool by just two points and holders Manchester City are only one ahead of them in second.

Arsenal vs Newcastle: Mikel Arteta out to master the dark arts ahead of grudge match

17:52 , Jonathan Gorrie

After a week like this one, no wonder Mikel Arteta is schooling his players in the dark arts.

Arsenal were taught a lesson in being streetwise by Porto on Wednesday night as they fell to a 1-0 defeat in the first of their Champions League last-16 tie.

The game had 36 fouls, which is the most in a Champions League game this season. The ball was also in play for just over 50 minutes - which was the least of all the last-16 ties during the past fortnight

Arsenal vs Newcastle: Score prediction today

17:32 , Jonathan Gorrie

Arsenal will only be back in the country two days before the game but will have a point to prove after a blunt evening in Portugal. Newcastle cannot help but ship goals at the moment - though are equally adept at putting the ball in the net at the other end.

There should be goals in this one, but most will be in favour of Arsenal.

Arsenal to win, 3-1.
