The late Premier League game on Saturday will see Newcastle travel south to London to take on Arsenal.Newcastle are coming into this game after a terrific 2-1 win over league leading Chelsea in St James Park, can they follow up that win with a win in London against an Arsenal side who bounced back from a defeat to Stoke with a 4-1 in in Turkey against Galatasaray. Newcastle will look to Papa Cisse who has scored three in two and has been Newcastle's most efficient finisher with seven in eight games this year. With ayoze Perez, Sami Ameob, Gouffran and Cisse at his disposal Alan Pardew has some talent available to him.
Can Arsene Wenger get his sie back on track domestically? A strange 3-2 loss to Stoke last week has left the Gunners four points behind West Ham United in fourth. Arsenal have won four of five in all competitions but one nil wins over West Brom and Southampton are perhaps just papering over the cracks. With Podolski and Ramsey both scoring a brace on Wednesday night and Arsene Wenger starting a young experimental side, it would appear as if this side has the strength in depth to move back up the table and with Giroud back from injury, Danny Wellbeck hitting form and Cazorla and Ramsay creatng plenty of chances in midfield this game will be an interesting one.
Two well balanced sides going head to head here. I am tempted by the price on Newcastle but away from home its going to be tough. I am going to take both teams to score here as I think we have two very strong offences. Cisse is on fire and has a nack of scoring big goals against big teams, as he did with his double last week aganst Chelsea. Giroud and Wellbeck have both been showing glimpses of form but need to be more consistant for the Gunners. This one should be a great free flowing game.
