Arsene Wenger has warned his Arsenal side that they must be at their best to keep Loic Remy at bay during Sunday’s clash at Newcastle United.

The Gunners head into the game knowing that a victory will ensure they keep their place at the top of the Premier League table heading into the new year.

Loic Remy is a very good striker, very quick and makes very good runs

Remy, who is on loan at the Magpies from QPR, has been in fine form of late, netting 10 goals and notching up two assists in 16 league games.

And Wenger knows that his side must be in top form if they are to leave St James’ Park with all three points after Alan Pardew’s men were 5-1 winners against Stoke on Thursday.

“Newcastle are in full confidence, they are doing well and won again on Boxing Day with a big score,” said Wenger.

“Loic Remy is a very good striker, very quick and makes very good runs, so we have to keep him quiet.

“That will all be another test, but our team wants to do well, the character is great and our concentration is top.”
