Arsenal prepare to entertain Newcastle United at Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Gunners are clearly on top, winning 51.28% of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Emirates Stadium was just last season, in August 2005, with Arsenal running out comfortable 2-0 winners in a Premiership match.
