Newcastle’s slump continued on Monday as a dismal second-half showing saw Arsenal cruise to a 3-0 win – and Ian Wright has told Premier League Productions he cannot understand why Steve Bruce overlooks one player.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s goalscoring touch has seemingly returned after the Arsenal skipper netted twice on Monday night, brilliant opening the scoring after a delightful pass from Thomas Partey.
Bukayo Saka got Arsenla’s second before Aubameyang tapped in a third. Newcastle fielded an attacking side and looked better than their last showing in the first 45, but were powerless to avoid a second-half thrashing.
Joelinton started on the left, Miguel Almiron on the right, and both Andy Carroll and Callum Wilson up front. Matt Ritchie was left on the bench and Wright cannot understand why the £12million signing (Telegraph) did not start.
