Stephen Bradley is back for Daily Cannon with a much more enjoyable game to analyse, looking at how Arsenal beat Newcastle United 3-0 on Monday night.
Tactics: What did Mikel Arteta change at half-time to take Arsenal from dour to delectable? How important is Emile Smith Rowe to this side?
Stephen bravely returns to dissect one of the most dour matches of the season as Arsenal's winning run came to a boring end against Crystal Palace.
Arsenal made their way to the fourth round of the FA Cup but they needed extra time and Emile Smith Rowe to do it.

In just over a year at Arsenal, Xhaka has shown signs of being a quality midfielder, yet further improvement is needed.
Arsenal succumbed to a 3-1 defeat to Manchester City side who were both profligate and fortuitous, but also clearly superior in every department.

Arsene Wenger’s half time adjustment proved the difference as a stuttering Arsenal overturned a first half deficit en route to a 3-1 win over a Cologne team who were lacking the enthusiasm of their supporters.
Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil were instrumental as a sharper Arsenal side dispatched an abject Bournemouth 3-0 on Saturday at the Emirates.
Arsenal’s third Premier League game of the season saw them again pick the wrong players in the wrong positions, and it was no surprise they were on the receiving end of the wrong result.
Mesut Özil and Granit Xhaka evidently didn’t read the script that Tuesday night’s home win over Sunderland was to be an end of season dead rubber played at walking pace by both sides.
Since moving to the 3–4–2–1 system after losing 3–0 to Crystal Palace, Arsenal have played six games, won five and conceded only four goals.

‘Control’ in a footballing context is an almost subjective word that means different things to different people. Whatever it is, Arsenal lacked it against West Brom
In March 2013, Arsene Wenger used a dead rubber Last 16 2nd Leg against Bayern Munich to experiment with a new line-up that would click and ultimately get Arsenal over the line and help them achieve that season’s minimum requirement of retaining Champions League football for the following season.

Saturday’s performance in the 0-4 win at Swansea was Arsenal’s most aesthetically pleasing display in the league since the win over Chelsea back in September, so what did they do differently?
As a centreback, it's somewhat unusual for Shkodran Mustafi to consistently complete the most passes out of anyone on the pitch.
