Arsenal vs Newcastle United: Mikel Arteta has prepared for Saturday’s Premier League encounter at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal, led by Mikel Arteta, will seek revenge against Newcastle United at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday (8pm kick-off).

Newcastle overcame Arsenal 1-0 at St James’ Park in November, with Arteta calling the decision to allow Anthony Gordon’s winning goal a ‘disgrace’ after three different VAR checks. The Magpies’ previous visit to the Emirates Stadium was also a source of contention, with Arteta believing his team should have been given two penalties in the 0-0 draw in January 2023.

“With every club there is always a history,” the Spaniard said in his pre-match press conference. “There is always what happened before, what is going to happen next. We know the importance of the game we just focus on what we have to do.
“I could sense in the dressing room straight away that we wanted to play the next day. After that defeat [at Newcastle], that feeling that you get, I’m sure that when they come back in an hour or two I’m going to be seeing that desire again.”

Newcastle have not beaten Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium since 2010, and they have not completed a league double over the North London club since the 1994-95 season. While the Magpies have failed to beat Premier League leaders Liverpool and second-placed Manchester City under Howe, they have seven points from their last four meetings with Arteta’s team, which is presently third.

“[Newcastle] are a really good team,” Arteta said. “They are really well trained and have outstanding players. They have a strong team spirit and are difficult to beat for both us and many other opponents.”
