Hosts having all of the ball early on

4′ Newcastle 0-0 Arsenal

The home side’s intentions are clear based off the opening exchanges. They have hardly let Arsenal have a touch of the ball so far, not something Arteta will be particularly pleased with.

Big night for this man

We’ll find out in the next hour whether White is truly fit to compete this evening. After Holding’s disaster performance against Tottenham, it is a huge night for the 24-year-old alongside Gabriel in the backline for the visitors.

15-minute warning

The atmosphere is building nicely as supporters flock to the stadium, and to their seats. Kick-off comes from St James’ Park in around 15 minutes.

Both teams looking for a response

Both Newcastle and Arsenal were on the end of heavy defeats in their last matches as they the Magpies were taken apart by Manchester City and Mikel Arteta’s side lost the North London Derby 3-0.

While a win tonight means much more for one team than it does the other, they will both be desperate to add three points to their tallies with the season winding to a close.

Will either team do enough to win the game, or will it end with a share of the points?

The official team sheet

I know I’ve given you the team news but, for those of you who might prefer a more old-school approach, here is the team sheet which is being modeled perfectly by George Caulkin at St James’ Park.

Tonight’s tunnel walk

In about 25 minutes’ time, both sets of players will be stood in the tunnel waiting to take to the pitch.

This video from Arsenal’s Twitter shows the exact walk the 22 players, and the match officials, will be doing moments before kick-off and it looks like they’ll be greeted by a brilliant display.

Playing for a Premier League place…

Moving away from this evening’s action in the North-east very briefly, there is a huge game at the John Smith’s Stadium in West Yorkshire tonight. Huddersfield are hosting Luton in the second leg of their Championship play-off semi-final where the winner will earn themselves a place at Wembley.

Jon Russell has been one of the players standing out on loan with the Terriers recently and Greg O’Keeffe caught up with him to get the brilliant interview you can read below.

The turnaround no one could have expected

After being considered one of the Premier League’s biggest flops for much of his time at Newcastle after making the £40m switch from Hoffenheim in 2019, Joelinton is now a cult hero at St James’ Park.

Such has been the quality of his turnaround, he won the club’s Player of the Year award, as announced earlier today. The fans absolutely adore him now as you can see from the photo above!

Monday Night Football under the lights at this place

Newcastle supporters no longer groan when they realize their side are playing. It doesn’t feel like a chore making the trip to St James’ Park anymore.

Nights like tonight – where many are expecting them to dent Arsenal’s top-four hopes – are what Magpies fans have wanted for years and there could be plenty more big footballing nights on the horizon on Tyneside.

team news breakdown

The return of White in the heart of the Arsenal defense is potentially huge, if he is totally fit. His absence at Tottenham on Thursday night was one of the main reasons why the Gunners were beaten so comprehensively.

Newcastle team news: Wilson back for the Magpies

Like White, Callum Wilson has also been passed fit to start after it was unclear as to whether he was up to the required fitness. Chris Wood drops out, as well as Jamaal Lascelles who has been replaced by Fabian Schar.

On his return to the side, Wilson wears the captain’s armband.

Arsenal team news: White returns in trio of changes

After doubts over whether he would be fit, Ben White is back in the Arsenal starting XI in place of the suspended Rob Holding. Emile Smith-Rowe and Nuno Tavares are the other two players who have been restored to the line-up to replace Gabriel Martinelli and Cedric Soares.

Big display expected tonight

Since the takeover of the Magpies back in October, St James’ Park has become a cauldron of atmosphere once again after it had the life drained out of it under the stewardship of Mike Ashley & co.

The work done by fan group Wor Flags has been a major part of helping the atmosphere inside the stadium and it looks as though they’ve got one of their biggest displays so far primed and ready to go this evening.

A huge week of Premier League football

There is plenty still to play for in the Premier League in what is left of this season. The title race is undecided as is the battle for Europe and the scrap to avoid relegation.

What do you expect the results to be in the games below?

It doesn’t make pretty reading if you’re a Newcastle fan…

Or a Spurs fan, for that matter.

Arteta has been impressed with Newcastle under Eddie Howe

“You can see what Eddie and the coaching staff have done,” Arteta said.

“Straight away they tried to modify the way they were playing, they have changed formation a few times, but after that they’ve been quite consistent and they have turned the place around I think in a really good way, and so merit to them .”

Newcastle can still finish in the top half of the Premier League, something that seemed unlikely six months ago.

Arteta on the derby defeat

The Arsenal manager refused to be drawn on the 3-0 loss to Spurs immediately after the game, but spoke more candidly when asked about it yesterday.

He said: “We started the game extremely well, that we conceded the first goal and the way we conceded after that decision and obviously after the game, got into a situation that is difficult to judge or assess.

“But I said it, I was really proud of the players, how they tried to handle the situation, but obviously very disappointed with the result.”
