Newcastle fans want Rob Elliot to start in goal against Arsenal

An out of form Newcastle United face Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday, and Magpies fans are all saying the same thing about goalkeeper Rob Elliot.

Rafa Benitez’s men come into the clash in north London having lost seven of their last eight Premier League matches, and they now lie just two places and one point above the relegation zone.

Elliot started the season as Benitez’s first-choice stopper, but he was relegated to the substitutes’ bench following the 3-0 defeat against Watford at St James’ Park, with Karl Darlow preferred between the sticks since then.

Newcastle supporters have been quick to have their say on goalkeeping conundrum via social media, and they want Elliot reclaim his spot at the Emirates.
