Arsenal scored either side of half-time to beat Newcastle 2-0 on Monday.

They moved into third place in the Premier League ahead of Manchester United and Tottenham in the Champions League places.

Aaron Ramsey, who was asked to be withdrawn in the 67th minute after picking up an apparent injury, found the back of the net at the half-hour mark. It was followed by Alexandre Lacazette’s killer second in the closing stages at the Emirates Stadium.
