BIG MATCH PREVIEWARSENAL v NEWCASTLE UTD.
Today, 3pm at Emirates Stadium THE OPPOSITION SOME might say the last thing Newcastle United need is a daunting trip to Arsenal this weekend.
But isn't every game daunting at the moment for Newcastle? Regardless of where you stand on the argument over whether Newcastle are in a relegation battle or not, this is the type of form associated with teams who end up going down.
And Newcastle could well be in the bottom three tonight if Arsenal do what most people expect at the Emirates Stadium.
RYDER'S VERDICT Arsenal fans have seen the best and the worst of their side in recent games at the Emirates. But they are overwhelming favourites today.
It's easy to see why, but the big question will be whether Newcastle can eradicate their individual errors and make this one interesting.
However, it's hard to see past a comfortable home win.
THE REFEREE Stuart Atwell (Warwickshire) Oversaw Newcastle's victories over Stoke and Palace.
CHARITY BET Isaac Hayden to be an anytime goalscorer at 9/1.
