Welcome to our Newcastle vs Arsenal preview, prediction and head to head. Newcastle started the season with a draw at home to Southampton. They then lost to Swansea, but will be pleased to have come away with a draw from Tottenham Spurs. They thumped Northampton town in the League Cup midweek, and need to keep that form going. Arsenal opened the season with a surprising loss to West Ham, but then redeemed themselves winning away at Crystal Palace. The goalless draw against Liverpool last week was a disappointment, and they need to step it up if they are not to repeat the dismal start they had to the season last year.
