Arsenal are looking to keep their title hopes alive as they travel to Champions League chasing Newcastle United.  

The Magpies enter the game in a rich vein of form which has seen them win eight of their last 10 Premier League games, including a notable 6-1 win against fellow top four contenders Tottenham Hotspur. The hosts boast one of the best home records in the top-flight and Eddie Howe’s side have suffered just one defeat at St James’ Park this season.

Arsenal are also enjoying one of their best campaigns in recent years and they are aiming to lift the Premier League title for the first time since their invincible season in 2004.

The Gunners have been one of the standout performers in the league this season but they desperately need a victory if they are going to keep up with the pace-setters Manchester City.
