Liverpool drew 3-3 in a derby match against Everton.
In-form French striker, Loic Remy, put the Magpies ahead before Yoan Gouffran slotted home the second goal from close range after John Ruddy had saved Ameobi’s header.
It was not the same good news for Sone Aluko’s Hull City who lost 0-1 at home to Crystal Palace.
Arsenal have stretched their lead at the summit of the English Premier League to four points after recording a slim 2-0 win over Southampton at the Emirates on Saturday evening.
Aluko was not in action as he is still out injured till February 2014.
The Gunners, who were previously enjoying a two-point gap prior to Saturday’s matches, got their advantage increased as they cruised to their ninth win of the season.
French striker, Oliver Giroud, gave Arsenal a ‘lucky’ lead inside 22 minutes having benefitted from a horrible goalkeeping error from Southampton keeper, Artur Boruc.
In other Week 12 fixtures already decided, Super Eagles and Liverpool winger, Victor Moses, featured in his first Merseyside derby as the Reds travelled to the Goodison Park to face fierce rivals Everton. Both sides played out a thrilling 3-3 draw.
Visiting Norwich City did pull one goal back but it was not enough to deny Ameobi and his teammates all three points on offer.
After endless tries from both sides to find the back of the net, it was Giroud who was on sung again to complete his brace as he calmly converted the penalty kick gifted to the Gunners in the 86th minute.
Ameobi was handed a starter’s shirt again by Manager Alan Pardew and he made his presence count though he was denied getting on the scorer’s sheet in the game played at the St James Park.
It was another good outing for Super Eagles striker, Shola Ameobi, as his club, Newcastle, cruised to their third successive win in the EPL defeating visiting Norwich City 2-1.
