Arsenal-Newcastle United Preview

Arsene Wenger is expecting a tough match as his title-chasing side come up against Newcastle United at St James' Park on Sunday. The Gunners (12-3-3) rallied from a goal to down to win 3-1 at West Ham on Boxing Day and will go into the final weekend of 2013 one point clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table. Carlton Cole gave West Ham the lead early in the second half before two goals from Theo Walcott and a third by Lukas Podolski secured a victory to end the Gunners' four-match winless streak. Wenger was pleased with the way his side battled back to take all three points at Upton Park and blamed a fixture pileup for his side's recent dip in form.
