Pic Special: Newcastle 0 Arsenal 1

Newcastle United suffered only their second defeat in ten games as they went down 1-0 at home to Arsenal on Sunday in the Barclays Premier League.

Olivier Giroud's second-half header separated the sides at St. James' Park, but the result failed to tell the full story of a fixture in which the Magpies were excellent and could, on another day, have been celebrating three points.

Mathieu Debuchy struck the woodwork,while Moussa Sissoko, Loic Remy, Yohan Cabaye and substitute Shola Ameobi all threatened, but United failed to score at home in the league for the first time since August.
