The Gunners landed another remarkable milestone as they put Newcastle to the sword on Sunday.

A handful of Premier League records were revised on Sunday after Arsenal secured a vital win over Newcastle United on Sunday afternoon. The Gunners managed to close the gap between them and league leaders Man City to just a point by beating the Magpies 2-0 inside St James' Stadium. 

Since Eddie Howe took over as manager in November 2021, only two teams have managed a win against Newcastle at the St James' Park and, now, Arsenal have successfully joined as the third team on the shortlist following a brilliant performance. The former league leaders were given an early lead thanks to Martin Odegaard's sublime goal in the 14th minute. 

Both clubs had several opportunities to find the back of the net at different instances in the game but could not utilize it. However, Fabian Schar own-goal in the 71st minute gave the visitors the much needed buffer and, ultimately, the maximum three points — condemning Newcastle to only their second home defeat of the season. 

Aside the result pushing Arsenal to keep the pressure on City, they crossed 80 points for the first time in 15 years. Also, for the first time in Premier League history, two of the London club's players have scored 15 or more goals in a single campaign. With four matches left to play, both Gabriel Martinelli and Martin Ødegaard have hit 15 goals apiece. It is worth noting that the latter is the first midfielder to manage the haul in a single campaign since Cesc Fàbregas did so in the 2009/10 season.

On the other hand, the result saw Arsenal become the first team in Premier League history to keep 30 clean sheets against a specific opponent. This season, Newcastle failed to score a single goal against the Gunners. Additionally, Aaron Ramsdale has become only the third different goalkeeper to record 10 away clean sheets in a single Premier League season. The England international follows in the footsteps of Petr Cech (11 in 2004-05 and 10 in 2008-09) and Ederson (11 in 2018-19 and 10 in 2021-22).
