Arsenal suffered their second home defeat by a promoted side this season when they were beaten 1-0 by a Newcastle United team who climbed into the Premier League's top four on the back of their victory on Sunday.
Andy Carroll headed the only goal at the end of the first half to give Newcastle their third successive win.
Arsenal were upset 3-2 at The Emirates by West Bromwich Albion in September and, although they had most of the possession and hit the bar twice on Sunday, they lacked the killer instinct against a team they last lost at home to nine years ago.
Liverpool were leading league leaders Chelsea 2-0 at Anfield at the time of this issue going to print. Fernando Torres scored a brace.
