Arsenal vs Newcastle LIVE: Eddie Howe FINALLY heads to dugout after covid recovery as Magpies desperate for victory to climb off the bottom of the table
The situation is becoming increasingly bleak for Newcastle United as each week that goes by fail to score a first win of the Premier League season.
Only Derby County remained scoreless in the first 13 games of the season around the turn of the century and managed to survive in the highest division. If the Magpies cannot get three points against Arsenal today, they will be forced to repeat this miracle.
Eddie Howe is heading to the dugout for the first time since becoming manager, after recovering from Covid-19 to take charge from the sidelines.
Arsenal, meanwhile, are still licking their wounds after a humiliating 4-0 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield, and are desperate to make amends.
