Newcastle United FC (0-2-1, 2 points) will look for its first win of the 2015-2016 Premier League season versus one of the league's top championship favorites, Arsenal FC (1-1-1, 4 points), in a match scheduled at the St James' Park in Newcastle upon Tyne on Saturday, August 29.

The Magpies are coming off a stunning 0-0 draw versus another championship favorite, Manchester United, last week at the Old Trafford.

New manager Steve McClaren is slowly getting into the groove of things as Newcastle managed to force a tie despite his men being on their back foot for the majority of the match, as per Bleacher Report.

The Tyneside giants survived the Red Devils' incessant attacks and had some good breaks from referee calls to pull off what is believed as a road upset.

Arsenal is also coming off a goalless draw against fellow powerhouse squad Liverpool FC at their home field of Emirates Stadium on Tuesday.

BBC Sport reported that the game was "littered with chances" but outstanding defense and goalkeeping from both sides prevented any goals.

The Reds came out firing in the first half, but Arsenal goalie Peter Cech was at his best in prying away high-quality shots, including those from star striker Christian Benteke and midfielder Philippe Coutinho.

Alexis Sanchez led the Gunners' retaliation in the second half, but Liverpool defense also held on.

Prediction: A big 3-1 win by Arsenal over Newcastle United. Arsene Wenger is tired of his team playing below their true potential and will mean to unleash them in this match against the Magpies.

Newcastle United starting lineup (4-2-3-1 formation): Krul; Haidara, Mbemba, Coloccini, Taylor; Wijnaldum, Colback; Pérez, Obertan, Anita; Mitrovic

Arsenal starting lineup (4-2-3-1 formation): Cech; Monreal, Koscielny, Paulista, Mertesacker; Sánchez, Özil; Ramsey, Coquelin, Cazorla
