Arsenal travel to Newcastle United on Monday night needing a win to hop back into the English Premier League's top 4.

The Gunners are coming off a dramatic 4-2 win in the London derby against Chelsea on Wednesday.

The victory means Mikel Arteta’s charges are in 5th place with 57 points, level with fourth-place Tottenham.

Man United are coming into the game after suffering an embarrassing 4-0 defeat at the hands of title-chasing Liverpool.

They remain three points adrift of their opponents but a win for them could see them hop into fourth place on the table.

Despite back-to-back home losses to Liverpool and Brighton, Arsenal’s away record remains the third best in the English top flight.
