Newcastle vs Arsenal Preview   Leave a comment

Newcastle United welcome Premier
League leaders Arsenal at St. James’
Park in a fixture which has always
been a visual delight for fans and
neutrals alike.
Newcastle United took Stoke City to
the cleaners during mid-week as the
Magpies ran the score up 5-1 against
the nine-man Potters.
With Arsenal coming to the far North,
the home side will look at this as their
chance to yet again show their ability
to knock off the biggest and best of
the league so far this season and are
eying a place in the top four.
Newcastle XI: Krul; Debuchy,
Williamson, Coloccini, Santon;
Tiote, Sissoko; Ben Arfa, Cabaye,
Gouffran; Remy.
Arsenal XI: Szczesny; Sagna,
Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Gibbs;
Whilshere, Arteta; Walcott, Ozil,
Podolski; Giroud.
The last match between the two teams
was played on the final day of the
2012-13 season, with the Gunners
picking up a well deserved (and rather
crucial) 1-0 win to ensure their place
in the UEFA Champions League for a
record 16th season running under
Arsene Wenger. The game at the
Emirates earlier in the same season
was one of the highest scoring
encounters of all-time, with Arsenal
utterly dominant and ending up as 7-3
