Welcome to today's live coverage of Arsenal vs Newcastle in the English Premier League. The match is at the Emirates Stadium, 12.30PM kickoff time in England.
1'
Joelinton takes on White on the left for Newcastle but the Arsenal defender stands strong and draws a foul off the Brazilian.
1'
Kickoff! Arsenal get us underway in North London.
4'
It's been a lively start. Newcastle are closing down Arsenal and getting stuck in. It's a back four for Eddie Howe's team today.
5'
Odegaard gets free in midfield for Arsenal and tries to slide a pass to Aubameyang but Schar reads it well. Clark has been dropped in defence today by Newcastle.
8'
White carries the ball forward for Arsenal and finds a lovely pass for Odegaard but the Magpies defence crowds him out. Newcaste are using a flat 4-4-2 so there is space to exploit between the lines.
9'
Foul! Newcastle launch the ball down the channel leading to Wilson and Gabriel wrestling for the ball. Wilson fires off a shot but the whistle had been blown for a foul.
11'
Tavares receives from Partey and fires off a shot which deflects away for a corner. Smith Rowe delivers from the left but Dubravka catches well in the air for the visitors.
12'
Shelvey shows his class with a low ball over the top for Wilson, he tries to take on White and look for a runner but the Gunners get back quickly. That's an indication of why Shelvey is playing -- he has a great passing range.
15'
Arsenal have had 83% in this match so far but just that one Tavares shot.
16'
CHANCE! Lokonga hits a lovely diagonal pass for Arsenal behind Ritchie for Saka's run. The England winger slides in but can't get the direction or contact on his shot to test Dubravka.
19'
Arsenal have s spell of good pressure. Odegaard turns on the edge of the box and is fouled from the side by Willock. Good freekick opportunity this for Mikel Arteta's team.
20'
SAVE! Odegaard takes the freekick from an inside left position. He goes over the wall and draws a really good diving save by Dubravka, who takes a couple of steps and punches the effort clear.
23'
No outfield player for Newcastle has completed more than four passes so far. Goalkeeper Dubravka has made eight.
26'
CHANCE! Saint-Maximin wins a corner for Newcastle as his cross hits Tomiyasu's arm, in a natural position. Fraser delivers the corner and Schar heads wide at the near post. A decent opening that was.
30'
SAVE! Shelvey lets fly with a lovely curling shot which looks destined for the net but Ramsdale does great work to tip the effort onto the crossbar. It wasn't quite in the corner and the 'keeper maybe made a meal of that.
31'
From the resulting corner, the ball again reaches Shelvey to shoot from distance but this effort is right at Ramsdale who gets behind it well. Newcastle are coming into the match more here, much to the Emirates crowd's frustration.
32'
Tomiyasu cuts inside from the right for Arsenal and tries a low left footed shot which goes wide of the near post.
36'
Saka does well to win a freekick off Saint-Maximin. Saka delivers the resulting freekick from the right and Dubravka punches clear with distance. Krafth took a clattering from his own goalkeeper and needs some treatment.
39'
Arsenal have Newcastle pinned in their own half but without much penetration or creativity. Calls ring out from the bench to move the ball quicker.
41'
SITTER! Arsenal should score. Aubameyang get a rebound chance to score from close range and he taps it against the post. Saka good play in the buildup there and Smith Rowe with the initial effort.
44'
Yellow! Ritchie is carded for Newcastle for pulling back Saka.
45'
+1' BLOCK! Smith Rowe has a shot blocked from Tomiyasu putting in a cross.
45'
Four minutes time added here.
45'
Great challenge by Schar inside the box. Quick touches around the area by Arsenal but the defender makes a perfect tackle on Saka.
45'
Half time! 0-0. The hosts are totally on top but it's goalless. Arsenal lacking some ideas and missing chances when they manage to create them.
46'
Kickoff! The second stanza is underway.
47'
Yellow! Krafth fouls Tavares several times and is yellow carded.
48'
+3' Tavares has another wild shot for Arsenal. Over the bar with his right foot again. That's three of those plus four overhit crosses.
50'
Save! Saka makes a good dribble inside Ritchie before taking a shot which Dubravka saves. Aubameyang wanted a pass in the box.
52'
10 fouls for Newcastle so far. Krafth fouls Smith Rowe. He needs to be careful, is on a yellow already.
53'
Lovely cross now from Saka over on the left but no one attacks the ball in the box.
56'
GOAL! ARSENAL! SAKA! He has been dangerous today and opens the scoring. A nice low finish into the corner after a nice assist by Tavares. Arsenal 1-0 Newcastle.
58'
What do Newcastle do now? They've had 27% of the ball and conceded 14 shots thus far. They can't park the bus now they are losing this one.
59'
Saka is down injured now. May have hurt himself in scoring that goal.
62'
Partey shoots from range for Arsenal but his shot deflects over the Newcastle goal.
64'
SUB for Arsenal: Saka off injured, Martinelli on.
65'
Yellow! Lascelles booked for Newcastle. Will miss the Norwich game on Tuesday along with Ritchie.
65'
Penalty shout? Wilson tumbles in the Arsenal box after chasing a long ball but it looked more like a dive than a foul.
66'
GOAL! ARSENAL! MARTINELLI! He scores straight after coming on. Tomiyasu chips it over the defence and Martinelli volleys across the goalkeeper to score.
68'
Subs for Newcastle: Ritchie off for Murphy, Almiron on for Joelinton.
71'
CHANCE! Smith Rowe slides a pass for Aubameyang but Dubravka smothers his toe poke. Not an easy chance as the pass was just slightly over-hit.
72'
Wide! Newcastle get forward but Murphy's low cross goes across the area untouched from the right. Good delivery there.
75'
Lots more ball now for Newcastle but a series of crosses are cleared quite easily by Arsenal.
76'
Sub: Arsenal take off Aubameyang for Lacazette.
76'
Yellow! Aubameyang carded. He fouled Almiron.
79'
Newcastle with over 70% ball possession in the last seven minutes. Have created nothing with it. A low shot from Shelvey is blocked.
81'
Side netting! Lacazette can't finish from Martinelli's pass and shoots wide with the left foot.
82'
Willock shot against his former team but straight at Ramsdale. Not the return to the Emirates that Willock would have wanted so far.
84'
Martinelli takes on makeshift left back Fraser. Just a goalkick though.
85'
Sub: Elneny for Partey for the Arsenal.
87'
Saint-Maximin with a good dribble and shot which Ramsdale beats away. Almiron falls over on the edge of the area but no freekick handed out.
89'
Tomiyasu plays a pass down the line for Martinelli. Lascelles comes across and clatters the Arsenal man with an arm and shoulder in the attacker's face.
89'
Sub for Newcastle: Hayden on, Shelvey taken off.
90'
Full time. Saka and sub Martinelli scored in the second half. A dominant display. Arsenal 2-0 Newcastle.
90'
+6' Fraser crosses and it makes Ramsdale shuffle backwards and push it over the bar. Gabriel clears the corner.
90'
Four minutes time added on.
90'
After treatment, Martinelli stays on. How VAR haven't given a penalty is astounding. That could have been a second yellow card for Lascelles too. Clear as day.
