Video: Newcastle United 0 – 1 Arsenal (August-29-2015) EPL Highlights
The centre-half deflected a second-half strike from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain into his own net, after his team-mate had been shown a straight red just 16 minutes into the game
Arsenal were gifted a 1-0 victory at Newcastle on Saturday, with Fabricio Coloccini putting through his own net after Aleksandar Mitrovic had got himself sent off.
Mitrovic, who had been booked in his two previous Premier League outings, was shown a straight red card for a wild stamp on Francis Coquelin after just 16 minutes of play.
Coloccini then decided the game in Arsenal’s favour when he deflected home a strike from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain seven minutes into the second half.
