Manchester City beat Newcastle 2-0 to hand the Gunners the initiative again

Arsenal’s hopes of qualifying for the Champions League were given a shot in the arm after Manchester City beat Newcastle United.

Norwich had taken it out of the Gunners hands by holding them to a 3-3 draw yesterday and the north London clubd could have been in fifth had their rivals taken advantage.

But Yaya Toure scored the opening goal of the game after 70 minutes to send the Citizens on their way.

And the Ivory Coast international scored his second late on to give his side the win.

The result means that a draw against West Brom should see the Gunners finish above the Magpies given their vastly superior goal difference.

It was then made better as Aston Villa held Tottenham to a 1-1 draw.

Ciaran Clark scored for the Villans but Emmanuel Adebayor levelled from the spot.
