In another match, Fulham defeated struggling Leicester 1-0 in a fiercely contested contest.

The Gunners and Magpies battled to a brutal 0-0 draw that demonstrated why both teams have performed above expectations this season.

At the Emirates Stadium, a fiercely contested match involving a barrage of yellow cards came to a deadlock.

But Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, and Eddie Howe, the manager of Newcastle, will draw encouragement from the way their teams stood their ground against opponents who were in good form.

Inevitably, Arsenal experienced a small amount of resentment for squandering the opportunity to pass second-place Manchester City by 10 points before the champions’ match at Chelsea on Thursday.

It was only the second time in their past 11 games that Arsenal failed to earn all three points, and the first time in six games.

However, there wasn’t much to criticize about Arsenal’s high-octane display, which easily could have led to another remarkable victory in a campaign that has defied all expectations.

Intriguingly, Arsenal’s next two league games have tense matchups with Tottenham and Manchester United.

After going 19 years without winning the Premier League, it is amazing enough for Arsenal to be in control of the title race in the beginning of 2023.

But what is maybe even more surprising is to see Newcastle more than competing with the leaders.

With their sixth consecutive clean sheet across all competitions, third-placed Newcastle, who have gone unbeaten in their past 12 league games, secured their spot in the top four.

Under the leadership of manager Eddie Howe and the ownership group supported by Saudi Arabia, the Magpies have made tremendous strides.

It was a noteworthy achievement to become the first team to prevent Arsenal from winning at home in the league this season, especially considering that they were also the first team to prevent the Gunners from scoring in the league since May.

As they raucously celebrated the point in one area of the Emirates Stadium, Newcastle’s devoted “Toon Army” fans were dreaming of making it to the Champions League after years of futility.

With their most recent victory, Fulham has raised their point total to 28, tying them with Liverpool for a position in the Europa Conference League.

They finished bottom in their last two Premier League seasons with 26 points in 2018–19 and 28 in 2020–21.
