Newcastle United 0-1 Arsenal – Premier League – 29th December 2013
In what was a right tight old battle at St. James’ Park, Arsenal defended resolutely and bagged the only, precious, goal of the game. Olivier Giroud was the scorer, finally ending his goal drought when he glanced home Theo Walcott’s floated free-kick. A win of some significance for the Gunners, who showed the requisite steel to see out the game and go back on top. And they did it without Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil!
