Alan Pardew said Newcastle United defender Danny Simpson was "too knackered" to get back to stop Arsenal scoring the winner in the 2-1 defeat at the Emirates Stadium.
Alan Pardew: “Poor old Danny Simpson couldn’t move, and in the end, it was in his area.
"He just couldn’t get back to defend it.
“The most important thing was that we came here, put a real proper effort in, and look organised, which we did.
“As I say, maybe in possession we could’ve done a little bit more, but we gave everything.
“They were bang in form, Arsenal.
“It was really hard to stay the course, and to get to 94 minutes, it’s galling to lose.
“We could have offered a bit more threat than we did."
