Newcastle do not have a good record against Arsenal and we have lost the last seven meetings, and we haven beaten Arsenal since November, 2010 when Chris Houghton was manager.
That was at the Emirates, when we took them apart 1-0, with a headed goal from Andy Carroll just before the half time break.
And it’s ten years since we last beat Arsenal at St James’ Park – so we cannot say that we get 3 points against Arsenal too often can we?

So it’s unusual when over half of our fans think we can win this game tomorrow – but that’s what our poll is indicating, with 51% thinking we can get the win tomorrow.
Only 18% think we will lose the game, so that’s 82% who think we can get something out of this game.
Let’s hope the fans are correct, but the lads must play well and defend well in those first twenty minutes or so, when Arsenal will be gunning for us.
