Arsenal moved into the top half of the English Premier League 2020-21 table after sealing a 3-0 victory against Newcastle United.
The Gunners who are in a rich vein of form are now unbeaten in five successive league games, winning four and drawing one.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a brace and Bukayo Saka got one as Newcastle had a forgettable second half.
Aubameyang showed his superb touch five minutes into the second period when beating Emil Krafth and firing past goal-keeper Karl Darlow at his near post for the opener.
Youngsters Emile Smith-Rowe and Saka combined for the second 10 minutes later.
Cedric Soares then set up an open goal for Aubameyang to double his tally as the Gunners claimed all three points.
Gabon international Aubameyang has either scored (5) or assisted (2) in six of his seven games against Newcastle across competitions. Notably, he has found the net in each of his last four against the Magpies.
The Magpies are without a league win since December 12. They remain 15th on the table. This was their third successive Premier League loss and a fourth in all competitions.
