Eddie Howe’s side will come into the game having been handsomely defeated by Manchester City last time out, whilst the Gunners will be hoping to banish any demons from their North London derby defeat on Thursday night.

Whilst Newcastle have very little to play for after their Premier League status was secured in midweek, Arsenal still harbour top-four ambitions and travel to Tyneside knowing they must win in order to keep their destiny in their own hands.

Newcastle have lost 18 of their last 19 games against Arsenal with their only win in the last decade coming at St James’s Park at the end of the 2017/18 season.
