Arsene Wenger on the Newcastle United game and the Capital One Cup derby


Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger expects a tight match on Saturday when the Gunners face Newcastle United away from home.

With the international break coming up, the Frenchman will be desperate to see his side take all three points from St James' Park aware that leaders Manchester City will have what should be a relatively easy game at home against Watford.

"We want to do well at Newcastle but it's always very, very, very tight and very committed there because the crowd is always behind their team," Wenger told reporters on Thursday.

"They have just come out from a good result at Manchester United so it's important that we prepare well and we give absolutely everything to win this game before the break.

"We have always done very well away from home. Last season and the season before, it was the last game of the season that we had to win. There has always been something big at stake, but we like pressure.

"[The Capital One Cup draw?] "It's an interesting draw and we have had some fierce competition with Tottenham over the years, even in the League Cup.

"It will be interesting but for us it's an opportunity to go through and we will take the competition seriously."
