  • Arsenal boss Wenger criticises Premier League's VAR delay

It was always going to be a hard in tonight's post game interview after Arsenal lost to Newcastle, and Arsene Wenger was probably clutching at straws when he was forced to go in front of the media after the game, and he tried to explain that the Europa League match on Thursday could have affected the result because of the fatigue from the journey.

That left Wenger's players worn out and he responded by giving 18-year-old midfielder Joe Willock his Premier League debut.

But Benitez does not think it will be a problem for the visitors, adding: "Normally, if your team is travelling, you will say, 'We will be a little bit exhausted.' The other manager will say, 'No.' I have experience of both sides".

It was Newcastle that scored the game's third goal in the 68th minute, however, when Slimani's towering header was flicked into Ritchie's path by Perez, and the Scotland worldwide finished into the back of the net.


"It's a massive achievement for the players, the city and the fans", he said.

The Magpies came into the game off the back of wins against Leicester, Huddersfield and Southampton but fell behind to an Arsenal side that was much changed but still boasted two £50m strikers.

It has lost 11 times in the top flight this season, which equals its worst tally under Wenger, set during the 2005-2006 campaign. We have to keep playing like that [and] we'll win games.

With the gap to the top four still at 13 points, and with only five games left to play, the Gunners are now expected to concentrate their efforts on winning the Europa League. "From no chances basically we lose 2-1".
