More Match Facts
The Gunners have had a player sent off in their last three meetings with Newcastle.
Last season, Arsenal were 4-0 up at half-time away to Pardew’s Newcastle and drew 4-4 becoming the first team ever to throw away a four-goal lead in the Premier League.
Arsene Wenger and Alan Pardew famously had a touchline falling out when the latter was boss at West Ham and raucously celebrated a last-minute winner. The Frenchman has only enjoyed one victory over Pardew as a Premier League coach, with the Newcastle boss enjoying two and three games ending drawn.
