Barclays Premier League: Arsenal - Newcastle United

Although the Gunners are not in the run for the title, they are well poised to at least get one of the Champions League qualification spots. It has been a rather trying and difficult campaign in the Barclays Premier League.

When they Arsenal take on the Newcastle United tonight, they are most likely to finish third, that will take them within a point of their North London Rivals.But in order to keep Champions League challenge on track, the Gunners will have to find a way out to curtail Demba Ba.

As for Newcastle United, they are still hanging in at the top end of the Premier League and a win tonight would bring them withing two points of both Arsenal and Chelsea and that last Champions League qualifying spot.

Both Arsenal and Newcastle United have in their possession tremendous attacking capability and extraordinary keepers, which means a tough game, charging attacks and incredible defence. It remains to be seen what actually transpires when they both meet, but certainly the magpies will be trying not to repeat their abysmal performance against the Spurs and will try to show their strength.

The match between Arsenal and Newcastle United commences 20:00 GMT at the Emirates Stadium, London.
