Follow all the action as Newcastle host Arsenal in the Premier League this evening.

Mikel Arteta’s side know only victory will ensure that the top-four race remains in their hands heading into the final day of the season. The Gunners currently trail Tottenham by two points but have a game in hand over Antonio Conte’s side. It will take a tremendous display of mettle to recover from a harrowing 3-0 defeat against Spurs in last week’s north London derby, though. Rob Holding’s suspension added to Arteta’s woes, with doubts over the fitness of Gabriel Magalhaes leaving the Gunners desperately short in defence.

Newcastle have little left to play for but pride, with their impressive upturn in form under Eddie Howe long assuring the Magpies of safety. They will be keen to put on a show in their final home game of the season, though, especially after suffering back-to-back defeats against Liverpool and Manchester City. Prior to that, Newcastle had won their last four league games in succession and there is no doubt that this will be a huge test for Arsenal at such a pivotal stage of their season.

GOAL! Newcastle 1 – 0 Arsenal (White OG, 55’)⚽️

55 mins: There’s the opener and it’s Newcastle who go in front! The home side move it over to the left side where Allan Saint-Maximin drops into midfield to receive possession.

Ben White is tracking back and throws himself at the pass. He meets the ball with his studs and turns it into the back of his own net! Unfortunate for Arsenal but a deserved lead for Newcastle.
