Arsenal travel to Newcastle on Monday night, knowing they need a win to keep themselves in pole position for fourth place.

The Gunners are one point clear of Tottenham in the race for the Champions League but could find themselves two behind their rivals by this game.


Mikel Arteta has a 100% record against Newcastle

Meanwhile, the Toon will be looking to end the season in good form and possibly break into the top ten.

Eddie Howe’s side are mathematically safe from relegation, which is some achievement considering they didn’t win any of their first 14 games.

They have also been in fine form at home, winning six of their last seven, so this will be a tough night for the Gunners.

However, they should be able to take comfort from their ridiculous record against the Magpies.

Newcastle have won just three of the last 43 meetings between the sides and the Gunners have won the last eight.

Newcastle v Arsenal: Team news

The hosts will be without Joe Willock and Jonjo Shelvey for their remaining two fixtures.

Shelvey has a calf injury and Willock has a problem with his knee, but both will be back for pre-season training.

It also remains to be seen if Fabian Schar is fit enough to start after he was only on the bench against Manchester City.

But Ryan Fraser, Callum Wilson and Kieran Trippier are all in full first-team training, so could be involved on Monday.

Meanwhile, Arsenal might have a crisis at the back. Rob Holding is suspended, and Gabriel Magalhaes suffered a hamstring issue against Spurs.

Ben White was left as an unused substitute, which suggests he could miss out on Monday as well.

The visitors will also be without Thomas Partey and Kieran Tierney, so Arteta has some serious problems.
