Premier League - Wed 26th Dec - Newcastle 1-1 Arsenal

Newcastle have defied my predictions and eased the pressure on Sam Allardyce with a battling point against Arsenal. Arsenal got a great early goal but Newcastle battled back in the second half to equalise through Stephen Taylor.

The Gunners, who along with Liverpool remain unbeaten in the Premier League, just didn't capitalise on their early goal and overall Newcastle deserved a point after a match in which they showed a real determination and work ethic.

The draw and performance against the leaders will be heartening for Allardyce, after Newcastle's woeful recent run that had seen them take just one point from the previous five Premier League matches.

Arsenal meanwhile remain unbeaten in the Premier League but have missed the chance to extend their lead to 6 points and are now 4 points clear of Manchester United having played the same number of games. Chelsea and Liverpool remain in third and fourth on 31 and 30 points respectively with Liverpool having played a game less.
