With a new year just beginning, Newcastle is likely going into their first match of 2016 against Arsenal with a vengeance. The team finished 2015 in the relegation zone, but will that give them the motivation they need to take on their top-ranked opponent? Watch the live stream and find out!
Although Arsenal and Newcastle are in opposite positions in the Premier League standings, both teams definitely have something to prove in their Jan. 2 matchup. Arsenal holds the top spot with a 12-3-4 record, while Newcastle is only two spots from last place with a record of 4-5-10. One team is battling to maintain their dominance while the other is fighting to stay alive — so who will come out with the victory? HollywoodLife.com has a way for you to catch all of the intense action!
As if a losing record isn’t motivation enough for Newcastle to play tough, they were shut out the last time they played Arsenal. When the teams met on Dec. 13, Arsenal defeated Newcastle by a painful score of 4-0. In fact, Arsenal has beaten Newcastle in their last three matches!
But it’s not going to be easy for Newcastle to take the victory. Arsenal has yet to be beaten at home since the opening day of this season, and they certainly won’t be backing down in their first match of the new year. Plus, they may hold the top spot, but they still have until May to prove that they deserve to be there!
Once the teams face each other on the field, we’re sure to be seeing some awfully aggressive football in the Emirates Stadium. Could this be the turnaround Newcastle is looking for, or will Arsenal keep that from happening? We’ll certainly be tuning in to find out!
