Arsenal grabbed the winner in a poor performance but how big could that result be. Cech saved Arsenal on numerous occasions before a corner put Newcastle in trouble which saw Koscielny poke the winner in after a header from Giroud.

A comfortable win for the Arsenal this afternoon which saw Arsenal move back to the top of table for at the least the next 24 hours. Walcott won an early penalty which saw Giroud score from the spot before Ramsey made it two just before half time with another Ӧzil assist in the process.

Arsenal drop points once again and now lose ground on the leaders Manchester City. Arsenal took the lead through a goal by Mesut Ozil before being pegged back by Norwich. Norwich could have won the game if it wasn’t for an excellent save by Cech

Arsenal was deserving losers on Saturday afternoon but could have rescued a point if Cazorla had not missed a penalty when he slipped.  From the start Arsenal were poor and sloppy which was added to with a low tempo. Things then got worst when Coquelin had to go off injured.  However, Arsenal then took the lead through a Giroud header but was pegged back by West Brom after poor defending from a free kick. The winner then was scored through an Arteta own goal.

This fixture last year was won by Arsenal through a Danny Welbeck header. Remember him? The game was somewhat overshadowed by protests by a minority of fans against Arsene Wenger.

 Today the game was lost by the Arsenal, in what unfortunately what was the kind of performance that everyone was waiting for. What will be blamed? The famous hand break? Or the International break? Or the various breaks in bones and muscles that seem to hamper the Arsenal every year.

 It was a series of unfortunate events that doomed the Gunners to a disappointing loss today. The title will be something of a dream if there are any more to follow.
