English Premier League 2017-18 round 20 – summary, highlights, standings, press conferences, statistics, reports and many more.
Townsend (49′), Tomkins (89′)
Mustafi (25′), Sánchez (62′, 66′)
Sanchez struck twice in four minutes after Andros Townsend had cancelled out Shkodran Mustafi’s first-half opener.
The forward squeezed a clinical strike in at the near post to make it 2-1 before bringing Jack Wilshere’s superb ball from his own half under control and flicking into the net.
James Tomkins headed in late on but Sanchez’s double was enough to secure a win that keeps sixth-placed Arsenal level on points with Tottenham, who are fifth, and one point behind fourth-placed Liverpool.
England winger Sterling poked home from Kevin de Bruyne’s lobbed pass after Sergio Aguero had twice hit the woodwork in the opening half hour.
Rolando Aarons saw a shot cleared off the line by Nicolas Otamendi in a rare Newcastle raid forward before the break, but City should have been well clear after De Bruyne thumped the post and then side-footed wide in the second half.
The hosts showed more ambition late on and Christian Atsu teed up fellow substitute Dwight Gayle to head wide in the final five minutes.
Kane (22′, 39′, 67′), Alli (49′), Son Heung-min (51′)
