The passion and rivalry that goes with football does not just end after the boot is being hung but extends after active football by mere sitting and watching or talking about the games.

This was the case of two legends, Alan Shearer and Ian Wright who both sat as pundits to watch the Gunners defeat Newcastle at the St James Park on Saturday.

Arsenal saw off their host in the 2 – 1 encounter after Granit Xhaka’s free-kick before the lead was extended by German international, Mesut Ozil minutes after to hand a security goal.

An effort by Newcastle to get back into the game with a strike by Ciaran Clark was just not enough to stop Arsenal from having the day.

The win eases pressure on the Unai Emery’s team as they record their third consecutive win of the season in five games.

The North London side can now boast of nine points in the league, level on points with north London rivals, Tottenham.

The victory for Arsenal was not a good one for Newcastle legend, Alan Shearer to watch and he wouldn’t just accept the reality.

The 48-year-old said he hunted sitting with Wright watching the game but claimed that Arsenal are not a good team despite the win.

The Arsenal legend had nothing much to say but simply replied in a sarcastic way by saying that the Gunners were a better team than Newcastle and deserves to take all three points in the game.

After many days of waiting, new Arsenal recruit might finally be in the pole when Arsenal file out against Vorskla Poltava in the Europa game.

The goalkeeper who came in the summer with the prospect of beating the competition from Petr Cech and emerging as the first team goalkeeper but that did not happen as he did not get the nod from Spanish manager, Unai Emery in the Premier League.

Howbeit, tonight’s Europa game could be the opportunity for Arsenal fans to see their new stopper who had arrived Bayer Leverkusen in the summer.

Emery has however given the player a big hint of becoming the first team goalkeeper even in the Premier League.

According to the former PSG manager, the culture of the sharing formula for goalkeepers in which one takes the league and the other takes European competition does not apply as he seeks to make do of the best.

He hints that should Leno ceases the opportunity to produce a good display, he will oust the former Chelsea keeper as his first choice.

Emery noted that his selection is strictly based on performance and nothing more.

Cech has been criticized for his several blunders in the league but that has not been enough for Emery to have a change of mind on him.
