The Gunners’ recent resurgence was stalled by Roy Hodgson’s side, who produced a disciplined defensive performance to leave the Emirates with a point after a 0-0 draw.
These two sides last met only a week ago, with Arsenal eventually emerging 2-0 winners after their FA Cup third round tie had gone to extra time.
The Magpies are in dire form, their latest poor result coming in the form of a 1-0 defeat against bottom side Sheffield United, who had not previously won a league game all season.
Date, kick-off time and venue
Arsenal vs Newcastle is scheduled for an 8pm kick-off on Monday, January 18, 2021.
The game will be played behind closed doors at the Emirates Stadium due to current coronavirus restrictions.
