Arsenal vs Newcastle: Michael Owen delivers Premier League prediction

Bosnian defender Sead Kolasinac listened carefully to instructions given by Arsene Wenger

"They're giving everything, but we are where we are and we have what we have".

They have hit a blip in recent weeks but that's nothing compared to Newcastle.

They were due to celebrate in London after Saturday's trip to Arsenal, but after their 1-0 defeat at the hands of the Gunners, the players have cancelled their end of year party.

The loss at the Emirates was Newcastle's eighth in their last nine league games, with the exception being a 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion.

"That's the difference in the Premier League - if you put a good run together you can shoot up the league", he told the club's official website.

"We have to keep working this way, try to get a result".

"That's just the start of what's to come for us", he said.

"This group of players are working so hard, so I could not have said to them, "You do not deserve to do this or that".

"We've seen it with Everton, West Ham and Crystal Palace". We can stay in the Premier League if we bring in a couple of players.

"Obviously, Arsenal away is always a tough game but we've a few fixtures coming up now where we need to make sure we use the same attitude and the same commitment against teams that we can pick up points against". I think it's the right thing.

Benitez is prepared to take "risks" in the transfer market. I was asking four or five players about it and they were very clear, 'Oh no, we can not and that was it.

"If we continue playing like this, we will have a couple of games where we get better results, that will give us more confidence".

"So you have to take risks, because you can't compete against them".

There could also be movement out of the club, though striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, keen to play week in, week out before heading to the World Cup with Serbia, will not be sold unless a replacement is secured.

"What I don't have at the moment is any offers of £15million or £20million for any of our players".
