The match against Newcastle was special for more than one reason for the Arsenal fans as the club recorded their tenth straight home victory which effectively puts them on the right track with their hopes of Champions League qualification.
Midfielder Aaron Ramsey had opened the scoring for the club in the first half which was later capitalized in the second half by French striker Alexandre Lacazette.
Arsenal will now take on Everton on Sunday following which they will turn their focus to Napoli in the Europa League on 11th April.
