London: Arsenal will look to reclaim its place in the Premier League’s top four, at the expense of north London rival Tottenham, with a win at Newcastle tonight for their penultimate game of the season.

Tottenham beat Burnley 1-0 on Sunday to move two points above Arsenal in the fight for Champions League qualification. If Arsenal wins at St. James’ Park, Mikel Arteta’s team knows another win at home to Everton on the final day would secure a top-four finish.

Third spot up for grabs

Arteta will already be without Kieran Tierney and Thomas Partey - as well as the suspended Rob Holding - so Takehiro Tomiyasu and Ben White should form the centre-back pairing here, assuming that the latter is fit enough.

Third place is still up for grabs, too. Chelsea currently occupies that spot and is two points ahead of Tottenham. Arsenal has injury concerns at centre back, with Ben White and Gabriel doubts and Rob Holding suspended.
