As Arsenal take on Newcastle United at the Emirates Stadium in a late Monday night kick-off, we shall look at the head-to-head statistics between these two sides at London.
Arsenal will resume their top four pursuit after UAE break when they take on Newcastle United at the Emirates on a Monday night kick-off. The Gunners will have their say on the teams outside the top six after completing their quota against the sides who are likely to finish in a European place this campaign.
With the kindliest of fixtures till the end of the season, Unai Emery’s side are expected to restore Champions League football next season. The Magpies lastly tasted a victory at Arsenal’s home turf in 2011 under the management of Chris Houghton. It has been a barren spell by gaining nil points from their last eight visits to the Emirates Stadium.
Rafa Benitez’s men are currently five points clear of the relegation zone and they need another two victories to keep the Premier League status intact. On the other hand, Unai Emery will be hoping to win the rest of the games to guarantee Champions League football next campaign.
The Magpies have a mantra to fight for the badge and it will not be a cakewalk for Arsenal on Monday.
