Back in Tyne: Five memorable wins at Arsenal
Written by Luke Vinton
Ahead of Newcastle United's Premier League clash with Arsenal on Monday night (kick-off 8pm BST), we take a look at some of the Magpies' memorable victories in North London...
Carroll's towering header (2010)
Andy Carroll's header on the stroke of half time guided the Magpies towards an excellent 1-0 win at the Emirates Stadium, their first away win at Arsenal for nine years.
After Gunners goalkeeper Łukasz Fabiański failed to deal with Joey Barton's dangerous free kick, Carroll rose high above the Pole to nod home.
Twelve days prior to the top-flight clash, United had exited the League Cup after a 4-0 hammering against the Gunners at St. James' Park.
However, Chris Hughton's men followed up their unforgettable 5-1 thrashing of Sunderland with an impressive three points in the capital to move into fifth spot.
Top of the league! (2001)
Sir Bobby Robson was granted an early Christmas present as his United side came from behind at Highbury to defeat Arsenal 3-1, climbing to the top of the Premier League in a dramatic contest.
Robert Pires opened the scoring for the home side before Gunners midfielder Ray Parlour was sent off by Graham Poll after receiving two yellow cards.
Andy O'Brien drew the Magpies level with their first shot on target before Newcastle were reduced to ten men as Craig Bellamy received his marching orders for a stamp on Ashley Cole.
Alan Shearer converted from the penalty spot late on before substitute Laurent Robert wrapped up the win with a last minute strike.
Elliott seals win for Magpies (1997)
United had another homegrown talent to thank as Robbie Elliott's 45th minute match winner sealed a 1-0 win over Arsenal in May.
The Gosforth-born defender found the target on the stroke of half time as Kenny Dalglish's 'Entertainers' held on for three points, with the Magpies forced to play the final stages of the league clash with ten men as Keith Gillespie, who replaced Tino Asprilla as a second half substitute, was sent off.
Despite Newcastle ending the season with a ten-game unbeaten streak, the Magpies fell short of lifting the Premier League, finishing seven points adrift of winners Manchester United.
Six on the trot for ruthless Magpies (1994)
Newcastle made an electric start to their 1994-95 Premier League campaign, recording their sixth successive league win against the Gunners.
Martin Keown's own goal gave United an early lead before Arsenal and England captain Tony Adams equalised two minutes later.
Peter Beardsley's penalty before the half-time whistle restored the away side's lead before Ruel Fox doubled their advantage, with Ian Wright's late strike proving to be a consolation strike.
A gift from God (1987)
With Newcastle fighting for survival in the First Division, Paul Goddard's goal secured a vital three points against Arsenal in the First Division.
Willie McFaul's men, which included the young talent of Paul Gascoigne, produced a spirited end to their league campaign despite beginning their campaign without a win in their opening six fixtures.
Goddard was in hot goalscoring form during the latter stages of the season, netting in seven consecutive league games as the Magpies narrowly avoided relegation by five points.
