Arsenal are back in action today as they take on Newcastle United away from home at St James Park from 8:30pm.
Arsenal last weekend put Sheffield United on the sword by defeating them 5-0, but on Wednesday they suffered a set back in Carabao Cup when The Hammers hammered them 3-1 and knocked them out of the competition.
On the other hand, Newcastle United knocked out the Carabao Cup champions Manchester United at Old Trafford to book a spot in the quarter finals.
This clash is one of the standout fixtures of the weekend, with updates from Mikel Arteta and Eddie Howe on Friday.
Newcastle United will be without Harvey Barnes, Alexander Isak, Sven Botman, Matt Target, Elliott Anderson, Jacob Murphy and Lewis Miley who are both out with injuries.
Arsenal on the other hand will miss the services of Smith Rowe, Gabriel Jesus, Thomas Partey and Jurrien Timber who are injured.
Arsenal have won 19 of their last 22 matches against Newcastle United in all competitions, including a 2-0 league victory at St James Park in May this year.
Newcastle United’s tally of 17 points is their highest after 10 league games since 2021 when they amassed 22 under Alan Pardew.
Arsenal are unbeaten after 10 league games for the first time since 2007-08, registering seven wins and three draws.
The question remains if they will continue with their unbeaten run in the league or they will fall at St James Park against a well organized side Newcastle United.
