Almost all Newcastle fans want Benítez to shake things up against Arsenal

Newcastle manager Rafa Benítez recently pledged that his side would adopt a more attacking approach when Arsenal head to St James’ Park on Saturday. 

This would be a marked change from The Magpies’ approach in their previous two games against Chelsea and Man City, where they sat very deep.

Despite Benítez’s defensive setup in both of those fixtures, his side were left empty handed, forcing him to go back to the drawing board as his search continues for the first win of the season.

In light of his intentions to attack more against Arsenal, we asked you whether you thought that was a good choice. Here are the results:

A comprehensive 94% of fans believed it was time for Benítez to go on the attack at St James’ Park. This may be wise, as The Gunners’ defence has looked particularly shaky so far this season, and can certainly be exploited.

We will find out on Saturday if you were right.
