An own goal from defender Fabricio Coloccini gave Arsenal an unconvincing victory over 10-man Newcastle.
Arsenal fans have a new hero to get on the back of their shirt – but it’s not who you might think.
Fabricio Coloccini diverted an Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain shot into his own net to give Arsenal a much needed lead against Newcastle.
And that strike means that most of Arsenal’s goals this season have been own goals, with two out of the three they’ve scored coming from generous opponent.
Arsenal’s official Twitter account were quick to pick up on that fact too, and in the process have managed to draw quite a lot of attention to the fact that their strikers aren’t really scoring many goals at the moment.
