BritishSoccer club Arsenal London took advantage of Aleksandar Mitrovic’s red card and won against Newcastle United at St James’ Park on Saturdayin the English Premier League. In fact, ‘The Gunners’ played against 10-man Newcastle for 75 minutes and they managed to score only once. However, Arsenal won but there were some familiar problems for the Londoners as they couldn't score more goals.

Theo Walcott, 26-year old English winger had been a substitute in the first three Premier League games of the new season, but today, Arsenal coach - Arsene Wenger decided to give him a chance from the kick-off.

Walcott blew his chance to claim his place as Arsenal’s main striker as he missed two great chances to score a goal.

Theo Walcott was denied by Newcastle’s goalkeeper Tim Krul twice. First, when he slipped through on goal early in the game and then when he missed a brilliant opportunity after a rebound from the six-yard box.

On the other hand, Theo Walcott was a little unlucky, because Newcastle defended much deeper after Aleksandar Mitrovic’s red card. This denied him space to run into and create space for himself. Arsenal scored only three goals in four games, two of which have been own goal. For Arsenal fans it is clear that ‘The Gunners’ need a new striker, but it seems that Arsene Wenger wouldn’t buy another player.

Another piece of bad news for Arsenal is injury of German superb midfielder - Mesut Ozil as he missed today’s game against Newcastle. This was a game, when skills of the German playmaker grew in his absence, as Arsene Wenger’s side controlled 74 per cent of possession, but couldn’t put the ball in the net.

Mesut Ozil was forced to miss today’s game due to a minor knee injury and the visitors missed the German between the midfield and attack.

Defender Gabriel Paulista played a key part in the last two Arsenal’s clean sheets as he was the best defender in the team. The Brazilian is increasingly pushing for a place in the first team alongside Laurent Koscielny.

He was aggressive, read the game superbly and showed a great pace – something that Per Mertesacker doesn’t have. Aleksandar Mitrovic's red card helped him to imprese the fans, but hedid not put a foot wrong.
