Pardew’s men have been in fine form in recent weeks climbing to sixth in the table on the back of a run of seven wins from their last 9 games.

The Magpies have scored 8 goals in their last 2 games, following up a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace with a 5-1 thrashing of Stoke on Boxing Day.

Loic Remy took his tally to 10 for the season with a brace against the Potters and with Yohan Cabaye and Yoan Gouffran also on target over the festive season Newcastle have plenty of weapons in the armour to trouble Arsenal.

After a difficult start to December that saw points dropped against Everton, Manchester City and Chelsea the Gunners re-discovered their knack for winning with a come-from-behind 3-1 win over West Ham United midweek.

The result saw Arsenal return to the top of the table and a win on Sunday would see the start the New Year in pole position.

They will have to do so however without top scorer Aaron Ramsey with the Welsh International missing out with a thigh complaint.

The loss of the in-form midfielder will be offset by the return of Jack Wilshere from suspension while Tomas Rosicky is also in the frame after being rested against West Ham United.

Yaya Sanogo (back), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Abou Diaby (both knee) remain sidelined but centre-back Laurent Koscielny could play after recovering from a gash in his knee.

Lukas Podolski scored on his return to action following a lengthy spell out and the German star will hope to follow up his goal scoring return with a first start since August.

Theo Walcott has scored four goals in his last three starts for the Gunners and will once again be a key man for the Gunners.

Newcastle meanwhile welcome back Cheick Tiote following suspension with Hatem Ben Arfa the most likely to make way.

Jonas Gutierrez is fit again following a calf complaint and could feature.
