Newcastle handed Arsenal their first Premier League loss of the season by clinching a 1-0 win on Saturday through Anthony Gordon’s second-half goal which was given after a long VAR check for three points.

A scrappy, annoying game was settled by a single goal in the 64th minute from Gordon, who finished from close range after Arsenal defender Gabriel failed to clear under pressure from Joelinton.

There was a video review for the ball being out of play in the buildup, a possible foul on Gabriel, and offside, leaving the home fans worried. The goal stood and Newcastle held on in the face of late Arsenal pressure.

Tottenham is now the only unbeaten team, sitting at the second spot in the league ahead of their game against Chelsea on Monday. They will move to the top if they beat the Pochettino's side at home.

Kai Havertz took out Sean Longstaff with a dangerous sliding tackle near the sideline. Havertz was booked, but so were three Newcastle players following their angry reactions. The match was nothing similar to a regular football match. Both teams failed to create opportunities for themselves but Newcastle found themselves lucky.

Third-place Arsenal came closes when Declan Rice headed wide just before the goal. Newcastle moved up to sixth place and is seven points behind leader Manchester City.
