Arsenal 3-0 Newcastle

Aug 31, 2008

Arsenal striker Robin van Persie scored a brace as his side found some of their irresistible form to beat Newcastle.

Van Persie powered in a spot-kick after Charles N’Zogbia handled an Emmanuel Adebayor cross as Arsenal overwhelmed a depleted Newcastle.

Michael Owen shot wide for the Magpies but Emmanuel Eboue’s clever backheel left Van Persie to slide in and score.

A Nicky Butt header hit the Arsenal woodwork but Denilson added the home side’s third after an intricate move.
