Newcastle v Arsenal live and team news: Gunners must win at St James’ Park to keep Champions League hopes in their hands and have a superb record on Toon


Arsenal travel to Newcastle on Monday night knowing they need a win to hold on to pole position for fourth place.

The Gunners are one point clear of Tottenham in the Champions League race 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 finish the season in good shape and possibly a top ten finish.

Eddie Howe’s side are mathematically safe from relegation, which is a feat considering they haven’t won any of their first 14 games.

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

However, they should be able to take comfort in 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.

Arsenal must bounce back from crushing loss to Spurs


Newcastle v Arsenal: Team News

The hosts will be without Joe Willock and Jonjo Shelvey for their final two matches.

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

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

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

Meanwhile, Arsenal could be having a crisis at the back. Rob Holding is suspended and Gabriel Magalhaes suffered a hamstring problem against Spurs.

Ben White was left as an unused substitute, suggesting he could also be missed on Monday.

The visitors will also be without Thomas Partey and Kieran Tierney, so Arteta is in serious trouble.
