Arsenal will be looking to continue their impressive recent form when Newcastle United visit the Emirates Stadium in the FA Cup third round on Saturday evening.

The north London side eased past Chelsea in their last home game and are just 1/2 (1.50) with bet365 to win this tie inside 90 minutes, or 1/4 (1.25) to qualify via any means.
Newcastle have endured a sequence of six winless games in all competitions but can be backed at 5/1 (6.0) to stun the holders in normal time, or 11/4 (3.75) to reach the fourth round.
