Mitrovic red debatable as Newcastle suffer against streetwise Arsenal

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop gives his thoughts on Aleksandar Mitrovic's red card in Newcastle's defeat to Arsenal.

It's hard enough for Newcastle to get a result against a side of Arsenal's class when they're playing with 11 men. When Aleksandar Mitrovic was sent off during Saturday's 1-0 home loss to Arsene Wenger's side, optimism regarding a positive result soon fell away.

Mitrovic's studs-up tackle on Francis Coquelin was a game-changer, with the match 15 minutes old and the score 0-0.

Perhaps a yellow card and a ticking off from referee Andre Marriner would have been sufficient so early in the game. Whatever...

1. Arsenal win but questions remain over attackers

Saturday's 1-0 win at St James' Park represented a second away victory for Arsenal as they got back on track after an indifferent start to the season. Newcastle never made life easy, even when striker Aleksandar Mitrovic was sent off after 15 minutes, but a fortunate Fabricio Coloccini own goal settled the sides.

If Arsene...

Mitrovic sent off at Newcastle vs. Arsenal - where was his control?

Newcastle United striker Aleksandar Mitrovic lost control and was sent off just 15 minutes into his side's match at home to Arsenal on Saturday afternoon.

And when this picture circulated of a man seemingly trying to control the players on the pitch, Mitrovic had a ready-made excuse why he couldn't keep his cool.

Luckily, the mystery finally unravelled a little later when it emerged...

Steve McClaren and Newcastle in positive mood ahead of Arsenal clash

Steve McClaren hailed his Newcastle side's performance against Manchester United last week.

It's been five years since Newcastle United fans celebrated a win over Arsenal and going into Saturday's match, a quick scan at the record book shows just one win in 17 attempts for the Magpies against Arsene Wenger's side.

Some bookmakers are offering odds of 5/1 for Newcastle to inflict a second defeat of the season on Wenger's men but there could be some value in them if the 0-0 draw at Manchester United last weekend is anything to go by.

Putting aside a tough opening 20 minutes at Old Trafford,...

Newcastle demonstrate growing confidence with draw at Man United

Manchester United failed to hit their stride as they were held 0-0 by Newcastle.
Newcastle boss Steve McClaren praises his resolute defence after they held out for a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford.

The expressions on the faces of jubilant Newcastle United players and fans on Saturday showed that the side's 0-0 draw at Manchester United meant more than just the point gained.

The team I follow around the country have had a particularly poor 2015, and there have been times when nobody knew where the next point was coming from. Or at least that's how it felt and what the performances suggested. It's been 192 days since Newcastle fans last turned up at an away game and watched their side...

1. Dull Manchester United need a spark

Manchester United's 100 percent record in the league is gone, and that is because so many of Louis van Gaal's ongoing issues with this team remain.

They had too much predictable possession and too little proactive attacking. Newcastle United gradually got to grips with that to claim a creditable 0-0 draw, even if they had goalkeeper Tim Krul and a linesman's...
