It could be all or nothing for Arsenal on Monday night as Mikel Arteta’s Champions League bandwagon heads to Newcastle.

Defeat in the North London derby means Arsenal need maximum points from their final two games with no room for error against Newcastle.

However, despite the high stakes, Arteta’s cause is not helped by some squad disruption with Gabriel and Rob Holding both missing out.

Ben White is expected to return to cover one centre back slot with Mo Elneny potentially drafted in alongside him.

On the flip side, Newcastle are running the clock down on the campaign, with Premier League safety now assured.

Midfield trio Isaac Hayden, Jonjo Shelvey and Joe Willock are all expected to miss out but fit again pair Kieran Trippier and Callum Wilson could be in line for a starting return.

This one kicks off with an 8pm start on Monday night at St. James’ Park.
