As new Premier League season kicks off on 13th August 2011, Newcastle United welcomes Arsenal at their home, St.James’ Park. Does this match remind you of something? Well, if not, just remember the last clash between Arsenal and Newcastle on 5th February 2010. An amazing comeback from Newcastle United left Arsenal in shock after four goals in the first-half for Arsene Wenger’s side looked to have won the game, but after losing Diaby to a red card in the second half, Newcastle managed to draw the game by 4-4.
Arsenal will be without their two key players Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri as they both are set to transfer from the club over the weekend. Whilshere and Diaby have also been ruled out due to injuries. So Arsenal need to work a little hard to get their first victory of the season.
