Following Tottenham’s narrow 1-0 win over Burnley on Sunday, Arsenal relinquished fourth place to their bitter rivals.
Nevertheless, Mikel Arteta’s side can return to the Champions League spots with victory at St James’ Park.
Although defeat in the North London derby ended a run of four straight wins, the Gunners will certainly be confident of getting back on track here.
Indeed, they have won 17 of their last 18 Premier League meetings with Newcastle – the only exception being a 2-1 defeat in April 2018.
Arsenal have also only lost their final away game once in their last 11 top-flight campaigns.
The omens do not look great for Newcastle, who welcome the Gunners after back-to-back defeats.
But the Magpies are yet to taste successive losses on home soil under Eddie Howe, and they will be encouraged by the fact their opponents have failed to keep a clean sheet in eight attempts.
