Until the final 20 minutes, Newcastle were very much in the game at the Emirates but eventually emerged as the losing side in a ten-goal thriller.

Arsenal roared ahead three times but on each occasion, Alan Pardew's side levelled - first through Demba Ba, then the impressive Sylvain Marveaux before Ba grabbed his second.

But with the Gunners having played no game on Boxing Day, United's tired legs began to tell as the Gunners scored four times in the final few minutes to run out 7-3 winners.
