After Tottenham scrapped to a 1-0 victory over Burnley on Sunday to follow up their emphatic north London derby success, the Gunners need to win at St James’ Park to keep their Champions League fate in their own hands going into the final day of the season.
Despite their damaging 3-0 defeat against Tottenham on Thursday, Arsenal know two wins from their final two games will be enough to secure a top-four finish.
But it is unlikely to be an easy night on Tyneside against a Newcastle side vastly improved under Eddie Howe and playing their final home game of the season.
