Newcastle Vs Arsenal - Preview

Newcastle will be without defenders Abdoulaye Faye (calf) and Stephen Carr (hamstring) for the game against Premier League leaders Arsenal.

Centre-back Steven Taylor (back) could return, but defender Claudio Cacapa and striker Michael Owen are both out

Flamini set to miss out Newcastle game
Premier League leaders Arsenal have seen midfielder Mathieu Flamini added to their absentee list with a reoccurrence of his thigh problem ahead of Wednesday night's game at Newcastle

Winger Alexander Hleb (Achilles), Cesc Fabregas (hamstring) and Abou Diaby (back) are also out, so Brazilians Gilberto and Denilson are set to come into contention.
Striker Robin van Persie continues to work on his match fitness following a knee problem

Newcastle (from): Given, Harper, Beye, Enrique, Rozehnal, Taylor, Edgar, Butt, Milner, Geremi, Emre, N'Zogbia, Barton, Smith, Viduka, Martins, Ameobi.

Arsenal (from): Almunia, Sagna, Toure, Gallas, Clichy, Eboue, Diarra, Gilberto, Rosicky, Walcott, Adebayor, Lehmann, Senderos, Bendtner, Denilson, Hoyte, Eduardo, Song.
Sam Allardyce could soon be on his way out if he lose today match against Arsenal as they lost 4 matches and draw once in their last 5 game.
Even though Newcastle keepers Shay Given and Steve Harper have released a statement refuting claims that senior players have voiced their concerns to under-fire boss Sam Allardyce.But this show further signs that Sam Allardyce will be sack soon if he don't turn things around.
Fortunately For Big Sam that the upcoming 4 matches after Arsenal Match is against Birmingham(Home), Fulham(Away), Derby(Home), Wigan(Away).
Thus I reckson Big Sam won't get the sack And I reckon Arsenal will win this match and bag vital 3 points despite the growing injury list.
Prediction : 1 - 2 Arsenal Away Win
