Aaron Ramsey continued his long Arsenal farewell by boosting the Gunners' Champions League hopes.

Midfielder Ramsey perfectly squirted a low shot into the bottom corner to send the north London side on their way to a 2-0 victory over Newcastle at the Emirates.

Ramsey, who was given the captain's armband, will leave the Gunners at the end of the season having signed a money-spinning pre-contract at Italian giants Juventus.

Alexandre Lacazette made sure of the result with a delicious lob in the 83rd minute.

The result pops Unai Emery's side into their highest position of the season - third - gives them a two-point lead over top-four rivals Tottenham and Manchester United, with Chelsea a further point back.
