HIGHLIGHTS | Arsenal vs Newcastle United (2-0) | Premier League | Saka, Martinelli

Dipublikasikan tanggal 26 Nov 2021
Two beautifully crafted second-half goals fired us back to winning ways at home to Newcastle.

Bukayo Saka broke the deadlock after the interval, finishing smartly after he, Emile Smith Rowe and Nuno Tavares combined well to open up the space.

Ten minutes later substitute Gabriel Martinelli sealed the win, showing a deft touch to volley home Takehiro Tomiyasu's cross just moments after coming on.

It was no more than we deserved for a dominant display - Mikel Arteta's men enjoyed nearly 70 per cent of possession - but in truth the first half was played at a pedestrian pace in the main, with neither side really taking control of the game.

Saka had our first sight of goal, stretching to connect with a deep, searching pass from Sambi Lokonga, and shooting just wide.

Aaron Ramsdale pulled off a now customary, eye-catching save on the half hour, springing away high to his left to push a Jonjo Shelvey drive on to the crossbar and over.

That seemed to spark us into action at least, and we should have taken the lead moments later. Smith Rowe's header from 10 yards out was parried by Martin Dubravka, the ball fell to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the far post, but the skipper's snap shot hit the upright from close range.

Tavares, keeping his place at left back ahead of Kieran Tierney, was never afraid to shoot when the opportunity presented itself, but his radar was off, and only two of our 12 shots in the first half were on target.

Our first effort of the second half was on target, but Saka didn't put enough power behind it, after doing so well to work his way into a shooting position in the box.

He made sure with his next effort though, and it was a wonderful team move that created the chance.

Arsenal were patiently moving the ball outside the area, drawing Newcastle out of position, before Emile Smith Rowe fed the ball into Tavares and the full back's clever pass released Saka, who unerringly found the far corner with his left foot.

Saka was soon withdrawn but his replacement Gabriel Martinelli wasted no time in announcing his presence on the pitch, doubling our lead with a wonderful finish.

Takehiro Tomiyasu floated the ball in to the box and the Brazilian forward beautifully cushioned his volley over Dubravka into the net.

It was a breathtaking way for the youngster to score his first of the season, just 93 seconds after coming on.

We kept attacking, looking for the third, and racked up 23 shots by full-time, but in the end were content with a two-goal win, a sixth Premier League clean sheet of the season, and three points that keep us in fifth place.

  • Tomiyasu getting better and better My boy Martinelli returns.

    • @シーズン7 めっちゃわかる、from japanとかいちいち主張するのきらい

    • @モンチッチ qqqqq¹

    • いちいち日本人でーすってアピるの嫌い 何人とかではなく一人のグーナーとしてコメントしろ

    • 多分冨安のレーティングが聞きたいのかな? にしてもこの人に聞く意味が全くないしせめて翻訳ソフト使うか日本語で書け

    • どうやって評価したのか聞きたいのか?

  • I keep going back to watch the brilliance in saka’s movements leading to his goal. He saw the pass coming, moved back just slightly to avoid the offside flag... And Martinelli,what a way to tell the fans you're not done yet! COYG!

    • crazy awareness of the offside, I also find it very intelligent to see that, adjust your position, and make the run!

    • Ofc hes not done lmao. He's a youngster. The point was they got time and (yet) the skills

    • @evoke 😂

    • @Saintmark Samuel na he's shite is all

    • ¹¹1¹p

  • Tomiyasu`s assist is best!

    • Like Chambers mega beast crossing 👌👌👌

    • Japanese support arsenal Koreans support tottenham I can see the pattern lol

    • Tomiyasiuuuu

    • Dont forget that turning pass from tavares tho

  • Saka with the Özil celebration warms my heart

    • 😉

    • @Alfie Jones I thought that too tbh, since he usually ends the celebration with an L so i thought it was for Mesut oziL

    • it wasnt for Ozil

    • I miss you ozil😔

    • Ozil scored his last goal for Arsenal against Newcastle.....that's why

  • This team actually gives me hope. It still needs a bit improvement, but give it a time and you will see that Arsenal will rise again.

    • Facts!!!

    • @Jon Pearl well we are still not on the level of man city chelsea Liverpool so

    • @ZxK I'm with you friend. Long run needs depth in midfield and attacking also needs rotation.

    • That’s the thing. I think if we sort out our striker, and get in another CDM or someone really creative in that midfield we can beat a City or Liverpool side.

    • Not gonna beat any of the good teams

  • Goals scored by 2 wingers, assisted by 2 fullbacks

    • thats because we dont have a striker

    • Tells you about our older veteran striker huh?

    • From both sides even more impressive

    • @paul Coul we both need to enhance midfield depth and the attack efficiency.

    • That means we dont need other position role. 🤣🤣🤣

  • Both fullbacks with outstanding performances and both got an assist each, lovely.

  • Ramsdale save are always key. I love his passion. Kudos to the players, they played with all their hearts ❤️ .

    • @BackPacker stfu just stop you people are always criticizing players who are not playing

    • He's been vital, especially in games that Arsenal have barely won, he's been the difference.

    • That's why he's starting before Leno, Leno has no passion whatsoever

  • Can we appreciate that pass by Tomiyasu?

    • that pass is outstanding and Martinelli didn't let it go in vain. both our full backs got assists that is to be appreciated.

  • I TRUST THE PROCESS, BUT TRUST MY MANAGER EVEN MORE. Arsenal through and through 💪🏽💪🏽

    • Putting trust in a cone layer, really?

    • Arsenal for life mashallah my friend ♥️♥️

  • That Tomiyasu's assist tho🔥🔥

  • I'd watch Tomiyasu's assist over n over again 🤩🤩🤩

  • Man, I love this club. Pisses me off sometimes but how I love this club😁

    • @Vinayak ReddyWhy would you want it to be in the Champions league if you say it's the worst team in history. I thought Champions league was for the best of the best. The fact that you think Arsenal should play in the Champions league just contradicts your statement . You absolutely don't make sense. Go to sleep

    • @Vinayak Reddy And? Maybe it will be good for arsenal to have time out of any European competition to get the team focused on making the top 4 this season!

    • @Vinayak Reddy wrong comment section dude, this aint cricket

    • @Vinayak Reddy Meanwhile Tottenham's about to go out in the CONFERENCE LEAGUE. What's your point?

    • @stephen S not being in the champions league

  • People keeps saying Saka and martinelli goals.., Tomi and Nuno assists. But they forgot the save from Aaron Ramsdale that keeps us in the game at halftime... What a save. Completely my best signing of the season...

    • Bro easily top 3 save in premier league he is an outstanding keeper why you think he's the starting keep for England and I'm happy about that he just threw himself at the ball w/ no fear in his heart lol I love it

  • The way Tomiyasu's assist is seri A pattern

  • Ramsdale is the signing of the season. A quality gk will save 20 points a season - SAF 💪

    • And a good defense would somehow win you the title....

    • Agreed, we havent been scoring as much as we should but ramsdale been keeping clean sheets every week or 2

    • I very much agree, we could well have been in 10th position but for Ramsdale this very match here could have ended in a draw

    • Did he actually say that 😳

  • Ramsdale, Nuno, Tomi, Saka, ESR and Martinelli... theyre young, excellent and the most important is theyre the future of Arsenal, not to mention OM8, Sambi, White, Gabi... oh I can't stop saying their names in my head!!!

    • Don't forget Chambers!

    • @Raden Hudan Haryoadi it’s fair to not include Saliba… hes clearly talented but he’s been an Arsenal player for what 2/3 years now? Still hasn’t made a senior debut. He’s only played with these guys a handful of times. For all we know he might not come back

    • How come you both fail to mention Saliba (even tho he's in Ligue 1) who's trying his best vs Messi, Neymar, and Mbappe this season? Wish he could come at January transfer but or back four is currently outstanding. Hope he'll come next season.

    • @Sirengo Brian Oh... whats wrong with me! Forgetting our future captain! Thank you for reminding me sir

    • How can you fail to mention KT

  • Tomiyasu… what a lovely assist. Just beautiful.

  • Martinelli is special yo just look at that quality finish

  • Our first goal is beautiful we need this kind of perfect linkup with each other. Our second goal was so brilliant too. Tomiyasu assist is really so good and Gabi finish is perfect. If we play like second half in every games, then we can challenge top4.

  • I think Tomiyasu is one of the best players in PL. Big love from Japan!🇯🇵

    • Depending on which Tomi wanna play RB or CB. Looks more dynamic in RB 代表でのCBよりクラブのサイドバックの方がサッカー楽しんでる感じに見えますよね

    • @joe he can bro, he has good range and speed, look when our winger cant take them out, but yea hes not the best defensive RB

    • @Bang Jek trent cant defend for his life

    • Defensively one of the best

    • @Bang Jek TAA offensive Tom - def

  • No one's appreciating that assist from Nuno. That awareness, that zero delay pass..he was my MOTM. He was running for the whole 90 mins.

  • What a goal, Martinelli! 💪

  • Congratulations Arsenal! You’re turning things around!

  • Outstanding from Tomiyasu, Martinelli, and Saka

    • also odegaard played very well

    • Ramsdale what a save🔥

  • Ramsdale's save and Tomi's assist 👌 and two goals by saka and marti ✌️😘

  • What a 2nd half performance. Go you Gunners! Get well soon Saka. We need you on Thursday ♥️🇿🇦

  • The first half was boring, the second half was just too sweet!😁😉 Congratulations team Arsenal!!!

  • Easy win with brilliant goals. Tommy man of the match. If he starts assisting he will be the best right back in the league. The Smith and Saka brilliant, hope injury isn't to serious. Aubameyang isn't doing to well the last three matches but lacazette isn't much better. Until a new striker comes in its Auba for lacazette for me.

    • Woah slow down there he doesn't need to be the best in the league we just need him to be consistent as he has been while adding those assists....no need to be jumping the gun

    • I won't call it an easy win.

    • @nafy if he can assist goals he can reach them but now he is only good at defense 10 game 1 assists not good

    • As long as Reece James, Trent, and cancelo are around I think it will be a bit hard to be the best right back in the league

    • Lacazette for Aubu for me.


  • what a goal by martinelli, glad to have such a great potential young player like him!

  • Can we just appreciate how Well Tavares did today .

    • Tierney is much more predictable than tavares,

    • @Hisoka Morow nah thats exactly what makes it so unpredictable, usually a fullback only goes down the line and barely ever cuts inside. he can do both. but he needs to learn when to take a shot and when not

    • yeah aside from some questionable decisions to shoot from far in the first half, he's been amazing

    • @imoh pius yeah, tavares gameplay can easily be intercept by any experience midfielder if they can read his early movement as he always cut to the midfield whenever he get the ball and that is very concerning as it also can be use as his weakness if the ball been steal by the other team

    • @imoh pius Definitely. Tavares is a very capable player, but is still a bit to wild and run and gun. Man U will expose him eventually. Glad we have players in rotation that give you different looks but also have a fire in their belly.

  • That second goal looked like a perfect tactical execution and that assist from Tomiyasu is world class.

  • tomiyasu⚡⚡

  • So happy for Martinelli 🥺❤️ hope Saka's injury is not bad😩 overall well done boyyysssss 😌❤️

  • If Tomi had scored that goal it would have been mind blowing

  • The game need this raising star (Martinelli )and I hope he got more playing game time to show case more of his talent 💪👌

  • Saka's movements his feints look like a seasoned veteran while he is just 20 years old .

  • The win was what mattered after last week, got some tough games coming up we need clinicality upfront and concentration at the back, Auba needs to find his shooting boots

    • @Ian because of this lineup against Chelsea last season we started finding our form. So I’d like to see Auba in the bench and Laca being our main man since his link up play is astonishing. Not to mention his passion for the club!

    • He’s been trying to find em for two seasons. You just come back?

    • Aubamayang is done.

    • @BackPackerEsr, laca and saka/martinelli upfront would be dope. I can see them banging goals

    • @Jason Tatum I agree mate, Auba is finished at Arsenal, I'd rather start with Laca

  • Tavares should be closely coached to keep his emotions in check. Crazy shooting

    • @Ire Makinde 😬

    • @Chimereze Emeruwa probs use it to fill a Dyson sphere

    • That boy has crazy energy....that needs to be properly harnessed.

  • what a save, what a miss, and finally what a goal

  • Mi equipo hasta el final. En las buenas y en las malas arsenal x 100 😁🤙🏻♥️

  • Martinelli is a beast, while Saka is going to be very much like him.

  • I wish to see Martinelli on the pitch ahead of Auba, in the new game.

    • I agree. Football ,flows so naturally for him

  • What a move 🔥🔥🔥❤

  • man i just feel good that they're somehow building the team with the youngsters!

  • Tomiyasu > All Right Back

  • Martinelli deserves minutes offers more than auba and that’s facts ! Play him arteta !

    • @Sharan Sharan Ikr

    • @Rafael Santos he plays better as a striker imo

    • @Bangdikview He's a striker but the coaches decide to play him LW all these years

    • He not striker bro

  • We never back down, we always come back stronger, we are "Arsenal" Saka & martinelli🔥🔥🔥🔥

  • Finally Gabi!! My favourite player in the arsenal squad and finally he gets some well needed minutes and a goal!!

  • What A Match , So Thrilled 😄🔥🔥

  • Tomi vision and Martinelli's speed shone. Tomi seems to work well with any right winger. Just wish Auba find his sharp touches in the NLD and the one vs Aston Villa.

  • A top class midfielder & a striker and we ready for champions league......!

  • Back to winning after liverpool game was the most important thing about that match. Solid defence & Ramsdale 🔥🔥🔥

  • Honestly i love seeing this young boys score

  • Can we take a moment to admire how good that pass was?


  • I keep on saying that the process is progressing game by game 🔥

  • What a brilliant finish from Martinelli that now guarantees him a place on the bench against Man Utd on Thursday

  • Martinelli reminds me of Alexis Sanchez. He is a fighter.

  • TOMMY'S assist incredible kind

  • Love the team picked themselves up and showed what they are capable of !!

  • Great football from Saka and martinelli

  • Great performance by Arsenal💙💙💙. Ramsdale and Saka performance was phenomenal in winning cause👍👍👍.

  • + Tavares is Enegizer Bunny + Tomi fit with EPL + Gabi-White solid as Vibranium + Ramsdale pure talent + Saka-ESR our wonderkid - Partey lack of confident - Odegard need more calm - Auba need to clinical COYG..

  • tomiyasu just an insane right back 🔥💯 COYG! ❤

  • Love to see that Gabi already eyeing the opportunity to score before tomi lob to him with 1st: drag the defender out of position 2nd: beat offside trap 3rd: and boom! Volley!

  • Martinelli is definitely one for the future a perfect number 9 👌

  • most of the youngsters were performing very well...hope they can keep the momentum till the end of the season!! COYG!!!

  • It's good to see martinelli back & scores again

  • Players need to be more clinical to add on more goals and no time of missing chances

    • The attacking players especially Auba. Every lub got top scorer, and Arsenal's top scorer aka captain... Meh

  • Our defenses have improved. In this match our midfielders are overwhelmed by Newcastle's full team defensive strategy. Both of goals came from wing defenders. We need CF ASAP. Vlahovic please

  • What a goal by Martinelli. Deserves to start the next game

  • How many chances does Auba need? Constantly expects the ball at his feet. Laca and Martinelli deserve more playing time.

    • he's more like pressing forward now rather than a goal scorer.

    • he is spy

    • @RoninHunter I've been saying the same thing since the beginning of last season. Not sure about releasing Pepe just yet as I think Arteta can improve him but Auba needs to go and to hand the captain's armband to Laca

    • @Jordan Holmes-Walker couldn’t agree more. His poor form is costing us upfront. Defense is doing bits, but he is really costing us in the top half. Either needs to be sold or dropped in the January window. Splash the cash on a new striker. Also, I think it’s time for Pepe to move on get a bit of coin for him too.

    • Yh man, that tap in was a easy goal for him to be on the scoresheet but instead misses it. It does get me annoyed for some of the chances he gets but fails them. Hes an amazing player but sometimes its mixed feelings about his time on the pitch sometimes

  • Kudos to them, they're beating the bottom half teams that they've struggled with the past couple years. They have to continue building on that momentum so they can finally compete against the "top 6" again. Still a long way to go for this team but they're finally showing some improvement

    • Yes that's the difference this season, we need to garner all those points then grab as much as we can from the top six

    • Relegation zone teams can be very dangerous to play against mate. Check what the same Newcastle did to Wolves, Tottenham, Brighton, Brentford. You will appreciate Arsenal getting 3 points with 2 unreplied goals better..

  • That martinelli goal was amazing

  • 2 beautiful team goals 👌👏

  • After 4 defeats, we are still just 5points behind Liverpool….

    • I do like that we don’t get much draws. They really are the devil in football. Saying that, I’d take it at OT on thirsy

  • I can't find words to explain how my martineli performed well and yet coming as a substitute, I need aubemuyang on bench in the next match, this boy should start

  • Aubameyang keep his great performance, he always act like enemy best defender. His clearance skill good like god

  • The goals are what i wanted to see from the team in terms of creativity

  • 2 goals are amazing from open play

  • Was at the game. Loved it. Keep it up boys.

  • Am happy Martinelli is back,his pace n brilliance with Saka will help us get more positive results

  • you know a goal is good when the commentators get excited even the other commentators watching live were excited about martinellis goal

  • Beautiful goals.

  • That Ozil celebration 🔥

  • i'm so proud of you guys

  • This is wonderful Saka just keeps doing the job

  • How did matinelli do that absolutely brilliant

  • Super pass from Tomi ❤

  • Awesome Marrinelli, my man✨

  • Martinelli will play a big part for arsenal this season. I’m not saying to just write auba off right now he also has a part to play this season but I’m patient with gabi he’ll be given his opportunity to light up the league and he will 💪🏼

  • Decent today again like the two full backs and always thought martinelli may be the best finisher at the club Newcastle think they may have had a penalty but the challenge on martinelli was more a penalty than any challenge on their players loving ramsdale too very reliable and great reflexes too

  • What goal 💜💜💜💜💜

  • Greay to see this performance from the boys but we shouldn't make this any special. Here's hoping they build that routine of beating most teams again. That'll be a big step up for us

  • Martinelli's goal is shear world class. The pass, the movement and the finish, world class!

  • Auba will be on every funny missed goals in football compilation from now on.

  • Team is playing well. Need a quality striker to make sure all the hard work doesn't go to waste.

  • Cmon give martinelli more time..i always believe he can be clinical striker like young aguero if he get time to play
