Newcastle have lost the last nine games against Arsenal so it would be something if we can take something out of this game today at the Emirates.
Newcastle have won only once in the last 21 games against Arsenal when we won 1-0 at the Emirates on 7th November 2010 with an Andy Carroll header just before the break.
Rafa Benitez has just announced his team for the tough test today, and there are quite a few changes to the side that lost 1-0 to Everton in midweek.
Isaac Hayden – gets a start against former club
Hayden and Merino will be in central midfield and they will have a difficult job today.

Newcastle fans are not too confident of getting anything from the Emirates today with close to three in four fans expecting another defeat.
But what we need is a shock result so we can start coming back and climb the Premier League table.
Howay The Lads!!
