A 2-1 victory over Newcastle, our third on the trot, really was a game of two halves. We were drab, slow and predictable before the break and didn’t even manage a shot on target.
The introduction of Lucas Torreira changed all that and after Granit Xhaka’s brilliant free-kick we turned the screw, grabbing what was to be the winning goal thanks to Ozil’s cool finish.
It was a shame we couldn’t keep a clean sheet…but it wouldn’t be Arsenal to do things the easy way.
