Aubameyang ends drought in Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Newcastle

Aubameyang, who hadn’t scored in the league since Dec. 16, broke the deadlock in the 50th minute before Bukayo Saka added a second with style in the 61st. An unmarked Aubameyang got his second goal in the 77th.

Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang finally ended his scoring drought in the Premier League with two second-half goals in a 3-0 win against Newcastle on Monday as the Gunners tried to claw their way out of mid-table.

Aubameyang, who hadn’t scored in the league since Dec. 16, broke the deadlock in the 50th minute before Bukayo Saka added a second with style in the 61st. An unmarked Aubameyang got his second goal in the 77th.

It was a fifth consecutive clean sheet in all competitions for Arsenal and a fourth win in five league matches.

“We’re all coming together as a group,” attacking midfielder Emile Smith Rowe said. “We’ve had some meetings off the pitch. The whole group is so much stronger and it showed on the pitch.”

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta echoed that sentiment.

“The spirit is better,” he said. “We have to maintain that run.”
