The winger was this week described by Clem of 'Look North' as a player who is "all fur coat and no knickers".

The BBC reporter added: "He looks wonderful on the ball, but his finishing ... and final ball ... is shocking. You expect something to happen the second he gets the ball, but it never does, because he doesn't know what to do with it."

The Toon winger has not scored for Newcastle in 26 appearances this season, in fact he has not scored for two years since a strike against Osasuna in the Spanish League.

Gutierrez: "The aim is to be safe before the end of the season.

"We are trying to avoid going into the last home game or away game when we need to win to stay up.

"Now we have to take three points from Arsenal and start a run that will take us away from danger.

"I try not to think about the relegation zone. I think we will get out of the fight at the bottom.

"It's different to Spain.

"The table here is very close and every team is capable of pulling off a shock.

"The first two years of my career at Real Mallorca I battled against relegation. So I know what is needed.

"I am not comparing life in Mallorca with now.

"I know there is a lot at stake and we are one of the biggest teams in England.

"There is so much history here so we can't change that by getting relegated."
