Rafa Benitez has just released team news and the starting Newcastle team to play at home to Arsenal this afternoon and once again it’s an unchanged team.
So Islam Slimani has not forced his way into the starting lin-up but it’s almost certain we see him get some playing time today – but Dwight Gayle must be doing well in training to keep his place.
If we can win the game we will remain in 10th place in the league table but be only one point behind 9th placed Everton with a game in hand – and we play at Goodison Park a week tomorrow night.

Islam Slimani – on bench
Arsenal had not had a good season and we have a decent chance to get our first win against Arsenal since November 2010 and also seal our safety in the division.
If that happens a celebration will be in order.
Three fans in five think we can get all 3 points today.
Howay The Lads!!
