Arsene Wenger unhappy with "very bad" VAR decision

Arsene Wenger unhappy with

Arsene Wenger blamed Arsenal's loss at Newcastle on fatigue following Thursday's Europa League trip to Moscow, but admitted that the manner of the defeat summed up their away form for the entire season.

Newcastle captain Jamaal Lascelles is happy at St James' Park and is ignoring transfer rumours, manager Rafa Benitez has said.

The Spaniard has been playing well lately, and has scored two goals in the Magpies' previous two Premier League matches - both of which were winners. They face Atletico Madrid in the semi-finals.

"We needed to work had, we didn't in the first half but much more in the second half - defending and playing counter attack against a really good team".

Just moments after he was left writhing on the turf following a crunching challenge from Kenedy, Lacazette exacted revenge.

The Gunners travelled to the northeast unbeaten in seven and set off on the right foot after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang set strike partner Alexandre Lacazette up for the opener in their first start together.

Magpies keeper Martin Dubravka stopped to collect an Alex Iwobi effort in the 20th minute as the Gunners grew further into the control.

Ayoze Perez equalised just before the half-hour mark, running in past Shkodran Mustafi, to guide in DeAndre Yedlin's cross at the near post.

Calum Chambers was unable to get on the end of a Rob Holding centre as Arsenal looked to respond, while the half ended with Ritchie hitting a shot straight at Cech.

The 18-year-old midfielder has been handed his Premier League debut this afternoon. The win lifts them into 10th, 13 points clear of the drop zone with six games remaining.

Perez has always held a reputation as a hot talent at Newcastle-an import from Tenerifewho has frequently shown flashes of brilliance.

Ritchie put Newcastle ahead in the 69th minute, with substitute Islam Slimani winning a header that Perez nudged to the Scot.
