Watch Video: Aubameyang extend Gunners lead to 2-0 against Newcastle United

Arsenal’s defence of the FA Cup is underway with a hard-fought extra-time victory over Newcastle United at the Emirates stadium on Saturday evening.

Academy product Emile Smith Rowe – who saw a red card downgraded earlier in the match – slotted the deciding goal in the 109th minute, capitalising on Ciaran Clark’s error to fire in off the inside of the far post.

Club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang secured his side’s progression to the fourth round in the closing stages of extra time, tapping in from Kieran Tierney’s pull-back.

Mikel Arteta’s men are dominated the ball during the 90 minutes of regular time but struggled to break down their hard-working visitors, with a number of attackers failing to make good on their recalls to the starting XI.
