Newcastle United v. Arsenal LIVE THREAD

Michael Regan

The busy holiday schedule rolls on as Newcastle travel to London to take on Arsene Wenger and Arsenal.

Another fun holiday trip for Newcastle sees them in London to take on Arsenal for their second road game of the holidays. You wouldn't be blamed under normal circumstances for viewing this match with optimism, but as Arsenal got to spend Boxing Day with their feet propped up drinking wassail and watching everyone else play, the prospects look even more bleak. It should be noted, however, that the extra rest did not help West Ham, who dropped three points to Reading this morning.

Your lineups:

Arsenal XI: Szczesny, Sagna, Koscielny, Vermaelen, Gibbs, Arteta, Wilshere, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Cazorla, Podolski, Walcott.

Arsenal subs: Mannone, Djourou, Ramsey, Coquelin, Rosicky, Gervinho, Giroud.

Newcastle XI: Krul; Simpson, Perch, Coloccini, Santon; Bigirimana, Tiote; Cisse, Marveaux, Obertan; Ba.

Newcastle subs:Harper, Ferguson, Tavernier, Streete, Abeid, Sammy Ameobi, Shola Ameobi


So we can all rest easily as Newcastle's bench holds not only James Tavernier but also Remie Streete and Mehdi Abeid... we're said to be playing a 4-2-3-1, it seems... we'll see how that works out for us. In the mean time, grab your Arsenal Commentary Bingo Card, register your picks for the CHNPL and let's talk and hug this one out.
