Arsene Wenger is looking to spark a turnaround in form with a routine victory against struggling Newcastle United.

After two uninspiring draws against Southampton and West Ham United, respectively, the Gunners will be looking to pick up three points against a Magpies side who are currently without a win in their last five games.

With a victory this weekend, Arsene Wenger will see his team back in contention for a place in the top four. However, with the dejected atmosphere emanating around the Emirates, maybe this fixture is not as straightforward as it seems.

Rafael Benitez’s Toon army will be looking to escape from the clutches of relegation and will hope Arsenal are lacking in confidence.

Here are five things to look out for at the Emirates Stadium this weekend.
