The 27-year-old has been criticised by Magpies fans for his performances for the team this season.

Benítez said he met with Newcastle's managing director Lee Charnley to outline transfer plans for January and he is keen to recruit the right players quickly and re-invigorate his side.

Mesut Ozil's stunning first half volley was enough to give Arsenal a 1-0 win, though Newcastle can count themselves somewhat unlucky to have left empty-handed. "We are a young team".

Arsenal haven't gotten a win in the Premier League since the end of November either, but they can start getting their form turned around and add to Newcastle's misery with an emphatic victory here on Saturday. I was asking four or five players about it and they were very clear, 'Oh no, we can not and that was it. "We had plenty of chances". We were pushing and attacking. It was a pity. "The unusual thing in our last games is that our displays have been good but we didn't win".

"We need to be competitive like today and keep going. Things will be different because the distance is not too big in the table". It's a brilliant attitude and a great response but it's not what we need - we need points and we need to start finding a way to win.

They will know that they will need to rectify the situation as soon as possible or relegation could be a serious possibility this season.

"We didn't do that because we couldn't".

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

"Now we have to put things right, make sure that we continue with this mentality and spirit, playing better if we can".

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright told BBC Radio 5Live, "I think Newcastle would be the ideal club for Daniel Sturridge".
