Newcastle have now lost 78 Premier League games as an away side in London, the most defeats of any side in the history of the Premier League in the capital.

I don't know what we can read into that, if anything at all.

Add to that ... Newcastle boss Steve Bruce has lost more matches in all competitions against Arsenal than he has versus any other side during his managerial career (21) ... and it suggests we don't like trips to London.

And if you want another stat to baffle you with science ...there were 35 passes in the build up to Mesut Ozil's goal for Arsenal, with every single player touching the ball for the Gunners - the most number of passes for any goal in the Premier League this season.
