How to watch Arsenal vs Newcastle Premier League live and match preview
Newcastle are enduring the season from hell as they search desperately for a victory at Arsenal this Saturday. Here's how you can watch.
Arsenal had been gradually recovering from a slow start to the Premier League season and worked their way into the top 4 frame prior to the international break. However, upon resumption last week they copped a 4-0 belting at the hands of title contenders Liverpool.
Newcastle have had their moments of promise this year but ultimately have delivered very little. They sit last on the table without a victory to their name and had to come from behind twice last week to draw 3-3 with Brentford.

Who will win Arsenal vs Newcastle?
As poor as Arsenal were last week they had produced a 10-game unbeaten run prior to that heavy defeat. They also dominate this head-to-head match-up, winning a remarkable 17 of the last 18 meetings between the 2 sides. It is in fact the most one-sided record of any combination of teams in the Premier League.
The Gunners are also relatively free from major injury concerns and without a crowded schedule this week they would be keen to get back some of the goal difference damage that was done against Liverpool.
Newcastle have played well enough at times to win at least once across their opening 12 matches but they've fallen short too often in key moments. With a relatively poor travel record it is hard to see that changing when they head to Arsenal this week.
