Arsenal kept Newcastle waiting to confirm their Premier League safety with a 2-0 win at St James Park on Sunday. The Londoners won for the first time in four games in all competitions thanks to Mohamed Elneny’s first Premier League goal and a superb strike from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Fourth bottom Newcastle remain nine points clear of the relegation zone with four games left.

Thursday’s Europa League semi-final second leg against Villarreal has already been billed by Gunners boss Mikel Arteta as the “crucial moment” in Arsenal’s season.

Arsenal will try to overturn a 2-1 first leg deficit and they enjoyed the ideal preparation on Tyneside.

In the sixth minute, Hector Bellerin ran onto David Luiz’s long pass and cut his cross back to Aubameyang.

Aubameyang miscued his attempted shot but the ball ran to Egypt midfielder Elneny and he smashed a fine strike past Martin Dubravka from the edge of the area.

Aubameyang killed off Newcastle in the 66th minute with his first goal in seven games.

The Gabon forward met Gabriel Martinelli’s cross with a superb flying volley from six yards.

Newcastle had Fabian Schar sent off in the 90th minute for a late challenge on Martinelli.

Tottenham host Sheffield United in the day’s late game.
