Arsenal will be aiming to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they welcome Newcastle United at the Emirates Stadium on Monday.
After a disastrous run of results, which saw Mikel Arteta’s job being called into question, Arsenal have managed to turn their Premier League form around of late, going on a four-game unbeaten run which has seen them move to the 11th spot in the table.
However, a goalless draw against Crystal Palace last time out will have dampened spirits somewhat and Arteta will be hoping for a quick turnaround of fortunes.
Newcastle United, on the other hand, are on an eight-game winless streak in all competitions since a 2-1 win over Fulham early in December.
Manager Steve Bruce will need to spark a resurgence soon or the Magpies could find themselves dragged into the relegation dogfight.
Arsenal and Newcastle have already met once this season, in the third round of the FA Cup earlier this month, with the Gunners carving out a 2-0 win.
Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno, Bellerin, Holding, Luiz, Tierney, Ceballos, Xhaka, Saka, Rowe, Aubameyang, Lacazette
Newcastle Utd XI (4-4-2): Darlow, Yedlin, Schaer, Clark, Dummett, Hendrick, Hayden, Longstaff, Ritchie, Joelinton, Wilson
Kick off is at 21:00 (GMT +1).
