Premier League—St. James' Park, Newcastle

Newcastle United 0-1 Arsenal

Scorers: Giroud (65')

Olivier Giroud glanced a header home from a Theo Walcott free-kick to steal the three points, and despite vast amounts of pressure applied by the home side in the closing stages, the Gunners were able to hang on for a second critical win over the Christmas period.
