Arsenal are without a win in their last three league games and they will be desperate to pick up three points when they host Newcastle United at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
Following the midweek draw at West Ham, the Gunners have dropped down to the seventh spot in the league table and now find themselves 19 points adrift of league leaders Manchester City. But they remain very much in contention for the top-four, and only one point separates them from fourth-placed Tottenham.
Alexandre Lacazette made only a late appearance against the Hammers, and he should start on Saturday.
The Magpies will come into this game on the back of a terrible run of form. They have picked up just one point from their last eight games and have dropped down to the sixteenth spot on the league table.
Only one point separates them from the drop zone and based on their current form, they have become one of the favourites to go down this season.
During midweek, Newcastle lost 1-0 to Everton whilst losing midfielder Jonjo Shelvey to a late red card.
The Gunners completed a 1-0 double over the Magpies in the 2015-16 Premier League season.
