Arsenal threatens to seize alongside Champions League for fifth year in a row. It could have taken a giant step at Newcastle United, but went down instead: 2-0.
Arsenal had a very unfortunate evening at St. James Park. It could have taken fourth place at win, which had taken the Champions League football into its own hands. Instead, going out at Newcastle pretty much everything went wrong.
Right after halftime, Arsenal fell behind after Ben White slipped the ball unhappily into his own goal. Just before time, Bruno Guimarães decided the match with the 2-0, which makes it weird for Arsenal to make it to the Champions League. Tottenham Hotspur stays fourth and can decide it out at Norwich City on Sunday, Arsenal appears to have to go back into the Europa League.
Newcastle comes ahead! 💥 Ben Whites own goal puts Arsenal in trouble and has to score twice more to get back above The Spurs 😬 #ZiggoSport #PremierLeague #NEWARS pic.twitter.com/WppKbcEUBI
