Newcastle boss Sam Allardyce has admitted he feared his side´s slump might have come earlier in his reign.

The 53-year-old will send his players out against Barclays Premier League leaders Arsenal desperate to end a five-game run without a win - Newcastle have not won since beating Tottenham 3-1 on October 22 and they have collected just a single point since.

Allardyce said: "When we beat Tottenham at home on the Monday night, things were moving well in advance of where I thought they would go. I thought we might have had a stickier period earlier on and we did not do that."
