Arsenal vs Newcastle LIVE: Premier League score and latest updates tonight – Martin Odegaard misses chance

Arsenal: Mikel Arteta comments on Odegaard’s performance in Brighton win

Arsenal take on Newcastle United in the Premier League tonight, as Mikel Arteta’s side look to extend their lead at the top of the table.

The Gunners head into this clash seven points clear of defending champions Manchester City, who are second, and nine points clear of opponents Newcastle in third. Last time out, Arsenal were 4-2 winners against Brighton as the north London side made it two league wins from two since the World Cup break. Meanwhile, Eddie Howe’s high-flying Newcastle also returned to top-flight action with a victory but were then frustrated by Leeds in a goalless draw.

Nevertheless, the Magpies are 12 games unbeaten in the division, while Arsenal have gone 10 league matches without a defeat. Will one of those impressive runs come to an end at the Emirates Stadium this evening?

Arsenal 0-0 Newcastle

67 mins: Eddie Howe is the first manager to switch things up as Chris Wood and Jacob Murphy are introduced to replace Callum Wilson and Miguel Almiron.

Wood is more of a targetman so that change may provoke a more direct approach to goal for Newcastle.

Arsenal 0-0 Newcastle

64 mins: Corner for Arsenal. Bukayo Saka takes this one and whips it high into the middle of the box. Gabriel goes for it but misses the ball with a leaping header and Newcastle manage to boot it away.

Goals! There’s been a few goals at Goodison Park and none have gone in favour of the hosts.

Brighton have added three goals to their 1-0 lead at half-time and are now 4-0 in front of Everton with around 30 minutes left to play.

It’s a demolition of Frank Lampard’s side.

Arsenal 0-0 Newcastle

61 mins: Saka takes a hit to the mouth from Dan Burn and needs some treatment from the medical staff. Eddie Howe uses the break in play to give Callum Wilson some more instructions.

Arsenal 0-0 Newcastle

58 mins: Joelinton is the third Newcastle United player to go in the book after taking down Saka on the edge of the Newcastle box. Almiron quickly joins him there after encroaching on the set piece take whilst being part of the wall.

The referee has lost control of the game in many ways. He’s shown too many yellow cards.

Saka’s delivery comes to nothing for Arsenal.

Arsenal 0-0 Newcastle

55 mins: Chance! There’s a bit of space that opens up on the left side of the pitch that Zinchenko takes the ball into. He threads it up to Xhaka who quickly moves the ball across to Odegaard.

As he does so often when Arsenal are under pressure, Odegaard controls the ball and lets fly from the edge of the box. However, this time he lifts his effort well over the crossbar.

Arsenal 0-0 Newcastle

51 mins: There’s a bit more bite to Newcastle since the restart with the Magpies hurrying Arsenal in the middle of the pitch and making it difficult for them to feed the ball up to their front men.

Joelinton receives the ball and is hit by Odegaard’s tackle leaving his knee to jar before he hits the deck. A check over by the physios and he’s okay to play on.

Arsenal 0-0 Newcastle

48 mins: Granit Xhaka needs to be wary. He’s already been shown a yellow card and gives Callum Wilson a slight push in the back knocking the Newcastle forward to ground.

The referee awards the free kick but decides not to punish Xhaka any further. Trippier’s delivery picks out Schar who nods his effort onto the top of the goal.

Second half: Arsenal 0-0 Newcastle

Arsenal get the ball rolling once again at the Emirates Stadium. This game is delicately poised and could yet go either way. Oleksandr Zinchenko slips a pass into the left side of the box for Eddie Nketiah but his cutback doesn’t reach Martin Odegaard and Newcastle clear their lines.
