Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored on his first start since recovering from malaria as Arsenal prepared for their Europa League showdown against Villarreal with a confidence-boosting 2-0 win away to Newcastle at St James’ Park.

Mohamed Elneny scored his first Premier League goal for the Gunners, before Aubameyang - on his first start since 3 April - secured the points in the second half. Speaking after the game, the Gabonese striker paid tribute to his “incredible” doctors for their part in his recovery. “The last five minutes I was dying a little bit but to tell the truth I felt good for most of the game and I was happy with that,” Aubameyang told Sky Sports. “The doctors did incredible work with me and I am really pleased with them and have to say thank you to them.”

Arsenal trail 2-1 after the away leg of their semi-final tie with Villarreal and victory in the north east of England was their first in four games. The Magpies had an excellent April to distance themselves from the bottom three but they struggled to impose themselves on Sunday. Steve Bruce’s side, who lost Fabian Schar to a straight red card after a late challenge on Gabriel Martinelli, remain nine points above the relegation zone with four games remaining. Arsenal, who host Villarreal on Thursday, move back above Aston Villa into ninth place in the table.

Man Utd Vs Liverpool game off after fans protest

Manchester United’s game against Liverpool has been postponed after about 200 fans broke into Old Trafford to protest against the Glazer family’s ownership of the club. The game was scheduled to kick-off at 16:30 BST on Sunday. 

“This is a collective decision from the police, both clubs, the Premier League and local authorities,” said the Premier League. Talks will now take place about re-arranging the game.
