Ozil scored the only goal that created the difference between Arsenal and Newcastle at the Emirates stadium. The astonishing volley by the German international at the 23rd minute is what Arsene Wenger meant by the necessity to win.
Arsenal walked into the pitch keeping in mind they lost a game and draw two in their past three games hence walked out of the pitch with a win leaving Newcastle in the same state of defeat having lost the previous 3 matches.
Ainesley Maitland who put up a praise worthy performance hit the side netting before the break meanwhile another good performer of the day Jack Wilshere almost gave Arsenal a breathing space towards to end of the match when he witnessed his attempt saved by Newcastle keeper Rob Elliot.
Newcastle who were dominated by Arsenal for much of the time had chance to frustrated the goal scored by Ozil if Jacob Murphy and Ayoze Perez were clinical enough.
The 10th straight defeat Newcastle has suffered to Arsenal leaves them winless since 21st October when they beat Crystal Palace.
Man of the match Ozil deserved the credit because of his 123 touches and his 106 successful passes with the winner.
