Arsenal have the perfect opportunity to bounce back from the nightmare result at Anfield when they play against Newcastle at the Emirates stadium.

The Gunners were ten games unbeaten but that run was ended by a heavy 4-0 defeat from Liverpool, this weekend Arsenal have a chance to return to winning ways against a struggling Newcastle.

Here are three things we’d like to see this weekend.

1. A response from a wounded Arsenal

After the 4-0 defeat Arsenal should respond with a resounding performance against a Newcastle side that are yet to win a Premier League game this season.

The players need to play like a wounded animal and make up for last week’s defeat in front of the home crowd.

2. Same team but different mentality

There shouldn’t be many or any changes to the starting team, the only change should be the mentality from the boys.

Arteta has to set out the team to attack and get a convincing win against a Newcastle side that are bottom of the table. It has to be known that the Liverpool result was just a blip in the recent trend of good results.

3. Convincing win to boost goal difference

Despite Arsenal’s resurgence that has seen them move from the bottom of the table in August to 5th, the Gunners have scored just 13 goals in 12 games.

Narrow 1-0 wins over Watford, Norwich and Burnley haven’t helped improve Arsenal’s goal difference that is now at -4.

Arsenal should strive to score more goals against a Newcastle that have conceded the join-most goals in the league and boost their goal difference.
