However, their chase took a blow in the past week as they lost the North London Derby to rivals Tottenham, who also backed that up with a 1-0 win over Burnley to leapfrog the Gunners. The challenge is still very much in Mikel Arteta’s hands though, with a game in hand over Spurs giving them the opportunity to head into the final game of the season in the driving seat. They will have to overcome Newcastle though, who have been a much-changed side since the turn of the new year. The visitors are set to meet a hostile St. James’ Park crowd, who will be hoping their side can sign the home campaign off with a win.
