Magpies winger had already proved to be the match-winner before he completed a real lasting impression

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was left empty handed in more ways than one today.

As the players went for the customary embraces after the game, Aubameyang received a handshake and a hug from Ayoze Perez, who netted the game’s opening goal.

Enter Mat Ritchie, who raised his hands into the air as if to high five the Gunners star.

But despite looking towards him, as Aubameyang went in for it, Ritchie turned and  gave it to Perez instead.

There was nothing more that Aubameyang could do other than walk off and pretend it never happened.

Matt Ritchie was the match-winner today as Newcastle stunned Arsenal at St James’ Park

In the game itself Ritchie booted the corner flag in delight after giving Arsenal ANOTHER away-day kicking.

The winger stunned the Gunners with a 69th-minute strike and celebrated by smashing the flag out of its hole.

And his goal sealed a fifth win on the spin for the Toon, while sending Arsenal to a fifth-straight Premier League defeat on the road.

Arsene Wenger’s side actually opened the scoring through Alexandre Lacazette, but Ayoze Perez levelled for the hosts before half-time.
