Arsenal vs Newcastle Live: Latest FA Cup Updates Today

As behind the scenes Arsenal Get ready for the FA Cup clash against Newcastle

Arsenal face United at Newcastle in the third round of the FA Cup today as Michael Arteta’s side begin their title defense. The Gunners have struggled for most of the current campaign, but have found form after beating Chelsea. Arsenal then finished with three consecutive wins, beating Brighton and West Brom, renewing some confidence ahead of the start of this season’s FA Cup tour.

Newcastle, meanwhile, have recently seen their own form falter and the Macbeths have not won all previous matches in the previous six games – a run that includes four defeats. Steve Bruce believes the magic of the FA Cup can rejuvenate his team against the Gunners, and a trophy run will definitely help elevate the atmosphere at any club.

Both Arteta and Bruce value the competition, with each manager lifting the trophy as Arsenal and Manchester United respectively. In fact, Artetta, who won the tournament for the first time as a manager last season – lifted the trophy as captain against Hull City, which Bruce was managing at the time. Bruce could settle some sort of revenge for that heart-wrenching 3-2 defeat, and his Newcastle team would be eager to bring an end to the Emirates.
