Arsenal are currently top of the league with 44 points, 8 ahead of Manchester City despite their goalless draw at home to Newcastle.
It is only the 3rd time that the Gunners had dropped points this season.
Chances were few in the encounter as Newcastle came into the game with a defensive setup. However there were loose opportunities for both sides.
Eddie Nketia in the 86 minute could have won the game for Arsenal but his shot was saved by Nick Pope.
