Newcastle United lost 4-1 to Arsenal, and co-owner Jamie Reuben has given his thoughts on the game.

Jamie Reuben believes Newcastle United will “come back stronger” after their 4-1 loss to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

Eddie Howe’s side fell behind 4-0 after an own goal by Sven Botman, followed by goals from Kai Havertz, Bukayo Saka, and Jakub Kiwior, before substitute Joe Willock provided a late consolation.

The Magpies remain seventh in the Premier League league, but the loss has raised additional concerns about their defensive record, with 20 goals conceded in 2024 ranking last in the competition.

However, the focus quickly shifts to Tuesday’s FA Cup fifth-round clash against Blackburn Rovers, and Reuben believes United will respond.

“Not the result we wanted – we will regroup and come back stronger,” the Newcastle co-owner wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter. “Thank you to the travelling @NUFC supporters for making what is an especially difficult and long journey this evening.”

Despite the 8pm kick-off, Howe’s side was supported by a sold-out away end at the Emirates Stadium, leaving hundreds of fans stranded in London overnight.

When asked about the supporters, Howe stated, “Well, I thought they were magnificent for us again today, which is not taken for granted.”

“You know how tough it was for them to get here today, and they won’t be able to return home tonight, so their willingness to support the players during this difficult time was very appreciated.

“We’ll need them again against Blackburn. We need to stick together. There’s just one way to achieve success: the group must work together.”

Around 7,000 people will attend Ewood Park in just over 48 hours as United try to reach the FA Cup quarterfinals for the second time in 18 years.
