Follow all the action as Newcastle host Arsenal in the Premier League tonight.

Mikel Arteta’s side know that only victory will ensure the top-four race remains in their hands heading into the final day of the season. The Gunners currently trail Tottenham by two points but have one game less against Antonio Conte’s side. It will take a tremendous show of courage, however, to recover from a heartbreaking 3-0 loss to Spurs in the North London derby last week. Rob Holding’s suspension added to Arteta’s woes, with Gabriel Magalhaes’ fitness doubts leaving the Gunners desperately short on defence.

Newcastle have little to play for but pride, with their impressive return to form under Eddie Howe long keeping the Magpies safe. They will be keen to put on a show in their final home game of the season, especially after suffering back-to-back defeats to Liverpool and Manchester City. Prior to that, Newcastle had won their last four league matches in succession and there is no doubt that this will be a huge test for Arsenal at such a crucial stage of their season.

Newcastle 0 – 0 Arsenal

39 mins: Takehiro Tomiyasu comes to a halt with what looks like a recurrence of a muscle problem he has faced this season. Mikel Arteta wastes no time making the switch and Cedric Soares is introduced for the Gunners.

36 mins: Save! It’s the best chance of the half so far! Newcastle collect the ball in midfield and pass it to Saint-Maximin who has plenty of space on the left wing. He cuts inside Tomiyasu and moves the ball into the box. Elneny is too far to close it and the winger fires a weak effort towards the near post. Ramsdale sees it late but jumps up and pushes the ball away from the post!

33 mins: Gabriel bursts into a flurry of words after defending another cross from the right wing. He tells his teammates to cheer up and shut down the Newcastle runners early.

The corner kick is swung in the middle and lands on Fabian Schar. He shoots at the turn but sees his effort blocked.

30 mins: Dan Burn floats a pass into the box where Callum Wilson checks it under control. He gives it to Allan Saint-Maximin who combines with Sean Longstaff to win a touch of the Magpies. They don’t make good use of their position on the pitch and play the ball upside down before losing possession in midfield.

Newcastle 0 – 0 Arsenal

27 mins: Arsenal win a corner which is whipped into the middle of Newcastle’s penalty area. There’s a bunch of bodies and Callum Wilson takes a hit as the ball is nodded out of the area. Bruno Guimaraes tries to clear more but is held back by Granit Xhaka and wins a free kick for the home side.

24 mins: Saka and Odegaard combine again on a break for Arsenal, with the midfielder passing the ball to Saka on the right. This time the Arsenal man leans inside and makes a low left-footed effort at goal which Martin Dubravka dives low to avoid.

Newcastle 0 – 0 Arsenal

21 mins: Finally there’s a chance for the Gunners at the other end. Bukayo Saka carries the ball on the right wing and slips into the box. He hands it to Martin Odegaard who completes the one-two with a threaded pass in the middle of the box. Saka gets to the ball and smokes one on goal only for Dan Burn to block it for a corner. Better from Arsenal.

Newcastle 0 – 0 Arsenal

18 minutes: Newcastle continue to knock on the door. Arsenal tidy up from the corner but the home side collect the ball and send it to the left side of the field. Saint-Maximin gives it to Joelinton who changes the game and Sean Longstaff makes a run into the right side of the box. He laces a pass through the goal and Ramsdale makes a hash of his parry attempt. The ball breaks his hands and luckily Ben White is behind him to push it away.

Newcastle 0 – 0 Arsenal

15 mins: Allan Saint-Maximin passes diagonally down the left wing and tackles Takehiro Tomiyasu before firing a cross into the box. It’s an inswinging effort that comes out of the game first.

Newcastle continue to dictate play, however. Saint-Maximin is back in action when he slides the ball towards the touchline for Joelinton who wins a corner kick by knocking the ball out of play from Mohamed Elneny.

Newcastle 0 – 0 Arsenal

12 mins: Bruno Guimaraes swings the free kick into the penalty area from inside the left and sets it up for a team-mate inside the penalty area. However, no one gets to the pass and the ball jumps away from the back post.

Callum Wilson’s return for Newcastle has got off to a very good start. He causes a lot of problems for Ben White and Gabriel. He’s quick and looks sharp on and off the ball.
