    Newcastle vs Arsenal

    This fixture saw the only four goal comeback to date in Premier League history, when Newcastle came back from 0-4 down to draw 4-4 in February 2011.

    Arsenal have lost just one of their last 12 Barclays Premier League games at St James Park (D7 W4).

    Newcastle have conceded a total of 14 goals in their last five Premier League games against Arsenal.

    Arsenal enjoyed a 7-3 win against Newcastle last season (at home), one of only six games in Premier League history to see 10+ goals (Before Dec 21st).

    That 7-3 game was these two sides’ final game of 2012 and Newcastle have conceded 24 goals in their last seven final PL games of the year.

    Arsenal have lost only one of their last 17 final games of the year (0-1 to Sheffield United in 2006).

    Alongside Spurs, Arsenal have won the most points away from home in the Premier League this season (19).

    Olivier Giroud has only scored one of his 18 Premier League goals outside of London, but this solitary strike came in the north-east (at Sunderland) earlier this season.

    Arsenal have won the most Premier League points in 2013, and their current 79 point tally in the year cannot be surpassed by any other side.

    Yoan Gouffran has scored in five consecutive Premier League home games for Newcastle United.
