Arsenal head into the Newcastle clash on a superb run of form.
The Gunners have seen off West Ham and Brighton since the Premier League returned, creating a seven-point gap between themselves and Manchester City.
However, they face one of their hardest tests of the season on Tuesday, with Newcastle, along with Arsenal, the only side to have lost just one league game this season.
