When faced with a gilt-edged opportunity to put Arsenal ahead against Newcastle today, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang struck the post, mussing when the chance looked easier to score.
The Gabonese international has a strong record against the Magpies, but until to his chance five minutes before halftime, he had barely touched the ball in an attacking approach.
After Martin Dubravka had made a superb save to deny Emile Smith Rowe's header, the ball dropped to Aubameyang just yards from goal, and he appeared set to break the deadlock.
When it appeared that scoring would be easier, the Arsenal captain nonetheless managed to hit the post with his effort.
Aubameyang's misfire was his fourth from a clear-cut chance this season, with only five players in the Premier League having missed more.
