Arsenal vs Newcastle

Mikel Arteta has guided Arsenal from their slump at the start to claim fifth spot on the table. The Gunners stitched together an eight-game unbeaten league run before they were handed a heavy defeat by Liverpool at Anfield last weekend, although that did not affect their standing.

Without European football to contest in midweek, Arteta will have a refreshed squad, adequately recovered from their rigours of last weekend. Arsenal remain close to a top-four spot as they head into the game against Newcastle United three points behind West Ham United.

Eddie Howe, who missed his maiden game in charge of Newcastle United last weekend, might feature on the technical area for the first time after testing negative for COVID-19. It is certainly a boost for the Magpies, who showed improvements against Brentford and ended the game with a 3-3 draw. That result and Norwich’s win over Southampton left them at the very bottom of the Premier League, and another bad run of results could be catastrophic for them in the long run.
