Arsenal got off the mark in the Premier League thanks to a lone goal from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang which ensured the Gunners defeated Newcastle on Sunday.

The 30-year-old striker, who shared the Golden Boot last season with Liverpool duo Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, opened his account for 2019/20 in the 58th minute, bringing down Ainsley Maitland-Niles’ cross before lifting the ball over Martin Dubravka.

It proved to be the crucial strike as the Gunners, who handed Premier League debuts to new signings Nicolas Pepe, Dani Ceballos and Gabriel Martinelli from the bench, kept Steve Bruce’s side at bay to hold on for an opening weekend success.
