- Arsenal's first ever league game came against Newcastle United on September 2, 1893. It was a Second Division match which ended in a 2-2 draw. Eleven years later the Magpies were Arsenal's first First Division opponents. However this time the game ended in a 3-0 defeat for the Gunners.
- In December 2001 Newcastle ended a run of 29 games without a win in London with a 3-1 victory at Highbury. It was the last defeat Arsenal suffered that season as they marched to a second Premiership title.

In 162 meetings between the two sides the Magpies have recorded three more wins than the Gunners. The other two Clubs with a better head to head record against us are Manchester United and Liverpool.
