Arsenal v Newcastle United: When is it? Is it on TV? What is the latest injury news?

Newcastle United face Arsenal in Eddie Howe’s second game as head coach, aiming to secure their first win of the season.

After their draw with Brentford on Saturday, Newcastle made it an unwanted twelve league games without a win this season, however, many supporters were impressed with the style of play implemented by Howe in his short-time on Tyneside.

However, this weekend they face a stern test against Arsenal at The Emirates stadium, a ground which they have not picked up three points at in over eleven years - a dismal record which includes nine straight league defeats.
