Newcastle park the bus to salvage a point at Arsenal

Newcastle parked the bus all night as they held Arsenal to a scoreless draw on Tuesday, but the Gunners still increased their advantage over Manchester City to eight points at the top of the Premier League.

LONDON – Newcastle parked the bus all night as they held Arsenal to a scoreless draw on Tuesday, but the Gunners still increased their advantage over Manchester City to eight points at the top of the Premier League.

Just days after drawing at champions Man City, Everton crumbled at home against Brighton, losing 4-1, while Fulham sent Leicester losing for the third time in a row but Manchester United secured a win.

In front of a raucous home crowd, Mikel Arteta‘s team almost prevailed in a turbulent match at the Emirates Stadium, but the Spaniard lamented that his team was denied two “scandalous penalties.”

Arteta was enraged when a cross in the penalty box struck Jacob Murphy’s arm in stoppage time, negating Arsenal’s claim for a spot-kick.

Dan Burn’s shirt pulling of Arsenal defender Gabriel in the area earlier in the second half was another offense that the Gunners’ manager cited as cause for complaint.

Meanwhile, Man U beat Bournemouth 3-0 at Old Trafford to earn their fourth straight Premier League victory and tie third-place Newcastle on 35 points.

United, which hasn’t won a title since 2017, has now won nine of its last ten games overall as they get used to life without Cristiano Ronaldo, who was revealed on Tuesday at his new Saudi club, Al Nassr.

Goals from Casemiro, Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford were enough for the Erik ten Hag led charges to secure a comfortable victory.
