Arsenal have won their last eight matches against Newcastle, keeping a clean sheet in each of the last seven. This eight-game streak, across all competitions, is the Gunners’ longest ongoing winning sequence against any other current Premier League club. Newcastle have won their final home match in six of the last eight seasons; Arsenal have won their last away game in ten of the last 11 campaigns.

Despite an embarrassing, humbling and humiliating derby defeat on Thursday night, Arsenal’s destiny remains in their own hands.

Last time out, everything that could go wrong for the Gunners did go wrong, in their biggest game of the season no less at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

By half time, Spurs were 2-0 up and Arsenal were down to ten men, with Rob Holding have been shown two yellow cards just seven minutes apart.

Then, no more than 45 seconds into the second half, Tottenham extended their lead to three and, luckily for the Gunners, it didn’t get any worse.

If Mikel Arteta’s side had won that North London derby, they’d have secured Champions League qualification, but now the pressure is really on.

Assuming Spurs beat Burnley at home and then Norwich away, Arsenal must win their last two matches to pip their rivals to fourth, with the gap just one point.

They host Everton on Sunday, the final day, so this game is certainly the tougher of the two remaining hurdles they still have to overcome.

Will Arsenal leave Tyneside in a strong position or with their top four hopes in tatters?

As for Newcastle United, they’ve made St James’ Park a fortress in recent times.

In February, March and April the Magpies won six consecutive Premier League home games, last achieving this in 2004 under Sir Bobby Robson.

This streak was then ended by Liverpool 16 days ago, but only the Reds, Man City, Chelsea and West Ham have left St James’ victorious all season.

When Eddie Howe arrived, the Toon Army were in the relegation zone, but are now 14th, just two points off a place in the top half.

Thus, this’ll be anything but an easy game Arsenal, so will they leave the North East in pole position for fourth or set for a return to the Europa League?

Joe Willock, who joined Newcastle from Arsenal last summer, is currently out injured, as is fellow midfielder Jonjo Shelvey.

So, star January signing Bruno Guimarães and Joelinton are likely to be joined in midfield again by Sean Longstaff.

Elsewhere, both Kieran Trippier and Callum Wilson made cameo substitute appearances against Manchester City last weekend.

This was the first time they’d featured since 13 February and 27 December respectively.

If Trippier isn’t fit to start, Javier Manquillo could come in for Emil Krafth at right-back.

In the middle, club captain Jamaal Lascelles has only started three of the last 14 matches, so Dan Burn’s partner could be Fabian Schär once again.

Up front, Chris Wood will continue to lead the line, with Wilson unlikely to be thrown straight back in.

Allan Saint-Maximin and Miguel Almirón will continue as the wide players with Ryan Fraser’s season over due to injury.

As well as missing the chance to clinch fourth spot at Spurs on Thursday, Arsenal are also now short of defensive options.

Rob Holding is serving a one-match ban following his dismissal, while Gabriel’s season could be over after he hobbled off with an injury late on.

This’ll lead to a defensive reshuffle with Ben White, even if not fully fit, thrown back in for his first appearance since the Man United win 23 days ago.

Cédric will continue at right-back, Takehiro Tomiyasu will shift into the middle with the untrusted Nuno Tavares returning over on the left.

The rest of the team will be unchanged with Mohamed Elneny alongside Granit Xhaka, in the continued absence of Thomas Parety.

Emile Smith Rowe could be the key player left out once again with Gabriel Martinelli, who scored in the reverse fixture, chosen on the left.

Eddie Nketiah will continue to lead the line, looking for his first Premier League goal outside London since June 2020.
