The visit of Newcastle to Arsenal on Tuesday will be the toughest test of their Premier League title challenge. Having yet to face second-placed Manchester City, a clash with third-placed Newcastle is the de facto most difficult game Mikel Arteta’s men have faced while leading by seven points.
Both teams have only lost once in the league, and a win in the capital will cement Newcastle’s title credentials.
Arsenal’s top-four hopes were shattered by a defeat on Tyneside last season, and they will be desperate to avoid a repeat this time around.
