Below are the Newcastle United player ratings for their 2-1 win over Arsenal.

The Magpies came from behind to win 2-1 against the Gunners, with Matt Ritchie scoring the victor just as he did against Manchester United in February.

Newcastle's fourth successive win ended Arsenal's unbeaten run of seven games in all competitions.

RAFAEL BENITEZ admitted he could not have dreamt Newcastle would smash through the Premier League's 40-point barrier with five games to spare.

Realistically, Arsenal already had no chance of making the top four and Wenger had been prioritising their Europa League campaign for several weeks.

The north Londoners have conceded 45 goals in their 33 league games, which is one more than it managed in the whole of last season. They face Atletico Madrid in the semi-finals.

The visitors took the lead following both strikers linking up for the Gunners - Auba to Laca.

Wenger, who was also unhappy with a challenge by Magpies midfielder Kenedy on Alexandre Lacazette, added: "Every big game this season has been decided by mistakes that could have been avoided with VAR".

Alex Iwobi nearly doubled Arsenal s lead moments later with a stinging strike that forced a good save from Martin Dubravka.

Perez delivered a fine finish for the goal, drifting in at the near post to glance home a right-wing cross from DeAndre Yedlin.

Calum Chambers should have put Arsenal back in front towards the end of the half, but he pushed an attempt wide as he slid in to meet Mustafi's header. Arsenal show no interest in the Premier League losing in northern England.

According to BBC, Arsenal, who reached the Europa League semi-finals with a 6-3 aggregate win over CSKA Moscow in Russian Federation on Thursday, are the only team in England's top four divisions yet to earn an away league point in 2018.

But it was Newcastle who landed the knockout blow in the 68th minute.

Ritchie clearly saves his goals for the big occasion, having scored the victor against Manchester United in February.

Kenedy nearly made it three, his shot looping up and hitting the bar.
