Pic Special: Newcastle 0 Arsenal 0

There may not have been any goals, but there was still plenty of incident as Newcastle hosted Arsenal on the opening day of the Barclays Premier League season.

And both sides were happy enough with a point in the end as Gervinho was sent off on his Gunners debut for lashing out at Joey Barton.

Yohan Cabaye, Demba Ba and Gabriel Obertan all made their St. James' Park bows in what was Fabricio Coloccini's first game as United's club captain and capturing all the action were Ian Horrocks and Barry Pells.
