Mikel Arteta’s side bust the deadlock on fifty four minutes through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s well-placed header and Pepe doubled the lead just 3 minutes later with a neat, first-time end.
Mesut Ozil poked in an exceedingly third late on from substitute Alexandre Lacazette’s pass and therefore the Frenchman converted a fourth in injury-time.
Newcastle tried to play further forward when conceding however were restricted to few opportunities – the dangerous Allan Saint-Maximin returning closest with a curling strike that flustered the post.
