Can Newcastle end their Arsenal hoodoo?

Newcastle take on Arsenal in the headline fixture of the Premier League’s weekend action, with the Champions League contenders meeting at St James’ Park.

Both teams have made strong starts to the Premier League season, with Arsenal unbeaten after 10 games during the current campaign. The Gunners are second in the table, two points behind leaders Tottenham, and aiming for another title challenge after pushing Manchester City close in last season’s race.

 

Newcastle, meanwhile, are sixth as the Magpies look to build on the success of last season, when Eddie Howe’s team secured a top four finish and Champions League qualification for the first time since 2002/03.

Mikel Arteta has called the trip to St James’ Park ‘one of the toughest’ fixtures in the Premier League, but Arsenal boast a remarkable record against Newcastle in recent meetings.

The north Londoners have won nine of the last 11 meetings in all competitions, including a 2-0 win at St James’ last season. Going further back, Arsenal have won 19 of the last 22 encounters between the sides, dating back to March 2012.

Newcastle have also failed to score in nine of the last 10 fixtures between the two teams, including in both Premier League fixtures last season.
