The featured Barclays Premier League match on Saturday is available to watch live online as Arsenal travel to Newcastle, desperate to get their season untracked if they plan on staging the title drive that was expected of the Gunners coming into the season. At the same time, a hungry Newcastle side will be out for their first win after holding Manchester United to a goalless draw last week at Old Trafford.
On Saturday, Newcastle returns home to Tyneside against an unexpectedly struggling Arsenal team who have so far managed to grab just four points from three Premier League games — not exactly the hard-charging start hoped for from a contender to unseat Chelsea from the Premier League throne.
Of course, Chelsea have started with a 1-1-1 record identical to the mark posted by Arsene Wenger’s men while of the 20 Barclays Premier League teams, only table-topping Manchester City has collected the maximum nine points out of the opening three weeks of the 2015-2016 season.

The lunchtime kickoff at St. James Park is set for 12:45 p.m. British Summer Time — 7:45 a.m. United States Eastern Daylight Time, 4:45 a.m. Pacific.
Like Newcastle, Arsenal are also entering the fourth weekend — the last before the initial international break of the season – off of a 0-0 draw, in a game that saw both teams find plenty of chances, but new Arsenal, and former Chelsea, goalkeeper Petr Cech show why Wenger was keen to sign him, with two game-saving stops.
But Arsenal could not convert Cech’s heroics into any kind of a product at the other end.
“Maybe we are not firing on all cylinders at the moment. By definition, finishing is a little bit cyclical and it goes in cycles,” Wenger said this week, explaining his team’s rocky start.
History heavily favors Arsenal in this matchup. The Gunners have won seven straight games against Newcastle, who have not defeated Arsenal at home since 2005. Arsenal has won six of their last seven road contests, with one draw in that stretch.
