Premier League Results – Arsenal snatch win over Toon

Thomas Vermaelen netted a last-gasp goal as Arsenal made it five Premier League wins in a row with a 2-1 victory over Newcastle United.

The Gunners have capitalised on Tottenham’s poor run to gain ground on their third-placed rivals in recent weeks, and they went into this meeting with the Magpies looking for a win that would close the gap to just one point.

Arsenal fell behind on 14 minutes when Hatem Ben Arfa cut inside Kieran Gibbs to slot the ball beyond Wojciech Szczesny, but they responded in superb fashion by equalising a minute later when red-hot hitman Robin van Persie directed home a driven cross from Theo Walcott.

Van Persie almost put the hosts ahead moments later, only to fire over the crossbar, and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain went close with a superb chest and volley that also cleared the bar.

Magpies goalkeeper Tim Krul thought he had ensured a point for his team when he tipped a Vermaelen header over the crossbar in added time, but the Arsenal defender would not be denied and in the 95th minute he bundled in the winner from another Walcott cross.

William Hill are now offering 11/10 that Arsenal are the top London club at the end of the season, with Spurs Even money and Chelsea 6/1. They are also 2/7 to finish in the top four, while Newcastle are 28/1 to taste Champions League football next season.
 
Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly told Bettingpro.com: “Arsenal have come from behind to win in the last four games that they have played and are showing the grit, determination and quality that is needed at this stage of the season to achieve a top four position.”

Following his latest goal, William Hill make van Persie 2/1 to beat Alan Shearer and Andy Cole’s Premier League goal record of 34 in a season.
