Arsenal in record-breaking comeback

Arsenal made Premier League history in their come-from-behind victory over Newcastle United, the Scottish Daily Record has reported, by becoming the first team in the league’s history to win four consecutive games having conceded the opening goal.

For Newcastle it was Hatem Ben Arfa who put the Magpies ahead only for Robin van Persie and Thomas Vermaelen to take the points for Arsenal, while in the game before that a van Persie brace cancelled out Laurent Koscielny’s own goal that had put Liverpool in front.

Before the Liverpool tie was the North London derby, which saw Tottenham Hotspur take a two-goal advantage after 34 minutes, only for Arsenal to equalise before half-time and hit three second-half goals to record a decisive victory.

The match that started Arsenal’s streak was away to Sunderland in mid-February, when Black Cats winger James McClean opened the scoring after 70 minutes but Aaron Ramsey levelled just five minutes later. Thierry Henry, in the last game of his loan from New York Red Bulls, won the match in injury time.
