fter Tottenham edged past Burnley to move into fourth place, the pressure is on Arsenal to respond when they travel to Newcastle on Monday night.
The Gunners are two points behind rivals Spurs and need to win at St James’ Park to keep their Champions League fate in their hands going into the final day of the season.
Despite their damaging 3-0 defeat against Tottenham on Thursday, Arsenal know two wins from their final two games will be enough to secure a top-four finish.
But it is unlikely to be an easy night on Tyneside against a Newcastle side playing their final home game of the season.

Newcastle vs Arsenal team news
Newcastle hope to have Ryan Fraser back but are without Federico Fernandez, Issac Hayden, Jamal Lewis, Joe Willock and Jonjo Shelvey.
Rob Holding is suspended for Arsenal, who are facing a defensive crisis given question marks over Ben White and Gabriel’s availability.
Gabriel was forced off at Tottenham after what Mikel Arteta feared was a muscle injury, while White was named on the bench for the north London derby but did not feature as he recovers from a hamstring issue.
Kieran Tierney and Thomas Partey remain sidelined.
Newcastle vs Arsenal prediction
The first 15 minutes of this game will provide such a key insight as to which Arsenal side has turned up, but Newcastle will be fired up to cap a very decent second half of the campaign in their final home game.
