Callum Williams was sent off as Newcastle United’s Under-21s were beaten 2-1 by Arsenal at St James’s Park tonight.

Coach Peter Beardsley handed starts to new signing Ivan Toney and goalkeeper Karl Darlow.

With the score goalless, defender Williams was dismissed for tripping Stephy Mavididi as the hour-mark approached.

Mavididi and Alex Iwobi put Arsenal 2-0 up, and Alex Gilliead netted an added-time consolation for 10-man Newcastle.
