St James' Park
Saturday 10th December
Arsenal travel to the North East to try and end their dismal away form. Having won only one of seven away games in the league this season, it's the Gunners poorest away start in Arsene Wengers reign.
Lauren will continue at left back, after starting there in the Champions league fixture against Ajax, and AW will make a late decision on who will fill the right back spot.
Robin van Persie likely to start upfront as Reyes miss the clash through injury.
Arsene Wenger - “It is up to us to prove that Bolton was an accident. In my opinion, it was a bad one because we were beaten in areas where you don’t want to be beaten if you are Arsenal Football Club.'
Newcastle are not without their own injury troubles and will be missing some big name players on Saturday.
Owen is back in training but may not be risked for the visit of Arsenal, while Saturday's game comes too early for Emre, Taylor and another injured pair, Kieron Dyer and Stephen Carr.
Maybe getting on a bit, but he will always be a threat.
Ashley Cole (foot), Gael Clichy (foot), Jose Antonio Reyes (thigh), Dennis Bergkamp (hamstring), Pascal Cygan (groin) and Alex Song (knee) will all miss the trip to Tyneside.
Henry sounds like he's on a mission to put Arsenal's domestic form back on track.
Henry v Given - This is the usual battle in this fixture, with Henry knocking shots in from all angles, and Given usually equal to them
I give up, I've been wrong for every game so far.
