Arsenal's banged-up, beat up selves try to rouse themselves for a game against a surprisingly not horrible Newcastle this morning; I don't believe Newcastle can continue their recent red-hot form, but of all the teams to face right now I can't imagine Arsenal are too excited about taking on the Toon, owners of six wins in eight games.

Arsenal played well against Galatasaray during the week; Newcastle will present a much sterner test. They helped out Arsenal last week by ensuring the Invincibles would remain unique for another season, but that doesn't mean I want Arsenal to show their gratitude for that by gifting Newcastle another three points. A gift card would be fine.
