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 currently in fourth place with 48 points but have two games in hand.

Meanwhile, Leicester are in 12th place on the log with 33 points.

The Foxes have won just one of their last seven top-flight matches away from home and will have an uphill task against an improved Arsenal.
