Arsenal vs Newcastle: FA Cup third round – LIVE!

Mikel Arteta will hope to see the Gunners continue their recent resurgence as they begin their latest FA Cup defence on Saturday evening.

Arsenal look to have finally turned a corner after their worst start to a season since the mid-1970s, with three successive wins rattled off against Chelsea, Brighton and West Brom.

Despite expected changes to Arteta’s starting XI, they will be expected to continue that run in the FA Cup third round against a Newcastle side low on both form and confidence and without a win since December 12.

Arsenal won this famous old competition for a record 14th time in August thanks to captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s heroics against Chelsea at Wembley, while Newcastle have lost 10 of their last 11 FA Cup matches against fellow Premier League opposition.
