The Only Away Win: Newcastle 1-3 Arsenal

Robin van Persie challenges Kevin Nolan

Four goals are created in within a 10-minute period at St. James' Park as Arsenal became the only team that grabbed an away win in Saturday as well as Sunday matches.

The home team had wasted a splendid chance to lead at the 23rd minute because Obafemi Martins' penalty kick was saved by Manuel Almunia.

It was the Gunners' turn to lead when forward Nicklas Bendtner made it 0-1 for his team with a 57-minute header. Seconds later, however, Martins equalized the score to give hope for his side.

A stunning action was displayed by Abou Diaby and Samir Nasri when they presented two more goals in just three minutes.

The Gunners maintain the gap to Manchester United, Chelsea, and Liverpool while Newcastle is dumped near the relegation zone.
