The Gunners have finally been defeated, ending their long streak, but Arteta will want to get back on track against last year’s Newcastle this weekend.

Arsenal v Newcastle United will kick off at 12:30 on Saturday, November 27 at the Emirates Stadium. Referee Stuart Atwell will take over the tie.

Mikel Arteta’s ten-match undefeated streak came to an end last week after Liverpool defeated him 4-0. The Gunners were outclassed across the field, but Aaron Ramsdale still managed to have a strong game between the sticks.

The London Reds will want to forget about that game and move on to this week’s game as quickly as possible. They are currently in fifth place in the league, three points behind West Ham. A victory will be crucial for Arsenal this weekend in their fight for European football next year.

Newcastle, on the other hand, might not play Premier League football next year. They live at the bottom of the table, five points from safety. They are the only team left without a win this season, but have achieved three draws in their last four games.

In brighter news, Magpie’s new manager Eddie Howe will be on the bench for them tomorrow. Their next three games will be vital for them to score points before entering a tough series of matches.

This has been a long, one-sided accessory for the past decade. In recent history, these two teams have met 22 times with the Gunners winning a whopping 18 times. Two games ended in draws, while Newcastle won twice, most recently in 2018.

Another troubling statistic for the Magpies is that they have lost and been unable to score in the last six games of this matchup. They played in May in which Arsenal won 2-0 away from home.
