Arsenal have kept their Premier League title hopes alive with a 2-0 victory over Newcastle United at St James Park. The Gunners started the game on the front foot and took the lead in the 14th minute through a stunning long-range strike from Martin Odegaard. The Norwegian midfielder picked up the ball just outside the box and unleashed a powerful shot that beat Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka.

The first half was a feisty affair, with both teams creating chances but failing to convert them. Newcastle United continued to dominate possession in the second half but failed to score and the gunners doubled their lead in the 71st minute when Fabian Schar turned the ball into his own net after a low cross from Gabriel Martinelli.

Overall, it was a crucial win for Arsenal as they continue to chase the Premier League title. With just three games remaining, every point counts, and they will need to maintain their form if they are to catch Manchester City and lift the trophy at the end of the season.
