Arsenal 4-0 Newcastle
As you may know, Arsenal’s management decided to take a little break from the English weather. The team was in Dubai and trained there for five days. The team was back in London on Thursday and played a match on Saturday. Arteta, Arsenal coach, said that Dubai break has to give a new start to every player in Arsenal. As it seems, Arteta was correct as the team could score four goals against Newcastle. After the appointment, the Spanish coach has only one win and a few consecutive draws. It was the first team when Arsenal won with Handicap under Arteta.
Arteta started playing with Aubameyang and Pepe as the wingers. Along with those wingers, the coach decided to start with Nketiah as the central striker. Ozil and Ceballos were in the midfield and crossing the balls to wingers.
Arsenal could not score a goal in the first half. Everything changed in the second half when Arsenal scored four goals and started demolishing opponents from the opening minutes. Aubameyang opened the score on the 54th minute, and in three minutes, Pepe increased the lead. Arsenal scored two goals in three minutes span. On 85th minute, Lacazette substituted Nketiah, and it was his prime moment to shine. French striker first assisted in Ozil and then scored goals. Arsenal scored four and conceded none; it was a perfect match from Arteta.
Aston Villa 2-3 Tottenham
Jose Mourinho’s team has an exciting away game against Aston Villa. The team is fighting for the Champions League zone, and each point is critical. The North London team was without Harry Kane as the striker had an injury. Kane will be out for a few weeks and can play from April.
Aston Villa opened the score in the 9th minute. Tottenham could turn the table around in the first half. The primary goal of Tottenham came from Alderweireld in the 27th minute. Tottenham got right on a penalty kick. Son took the ball and decided to score the goal from a penalty kick. He could not convert the penalty, but the goalkeeper has not saved the ball properly, and Son easily tapped in the ball in the net. Tottenham took the lead right before the break.
Aston Villa could tie the game in the second half. Engels scored the second goal for his team in this match. The assistant came from Grealish. It’s rumored that Manchester United will sign Grealish in the summer of 2020. So, attacking midfielder is proving many haters wrong during the matches.

Son scored an easy goal while being on a one-on-one with Aston Villa’s goalkeeper. As of now, Tottenham has 40 points, and the team entered into the Europa League zone.
