Follow all the action as Newcastle host Arsenal in the Premier League this evening.

Mikel Arteta’s side know only victory will ensure that the top-four race remains in their hands heading into the final day of the season. The Gunners currently trail Tottenham by two points but have a game in hand over Antonio Conte’s side. It will take a tremendous display of mettle to recover from a harrowing 3-0 defeat against Spurs in last week’s north London derby, though. Rob Holding’s suspension added to Arteta’s woes, with doubts over the fitness of Gabriel Magalhaes leaving the Gunners desperately short in defence.

Newcastle have little left to play for but pride, with their impressive upturn in form under Eddie Howe long assuring the Magpies of safety. They will be keen to put on a show in their final home game of the season, though, especially after suffering back-to-back defeats against Liverpool and Manchester City. Prior to that, Newcastle had won their last four league games in succession and there is no doubt that this will be a huge test for Arsenal at such a pivotal stage of their season.

Newcastle 2 – 0 Arsenal

90+3 mins: Arsenal are in still pushing. They’re passing the ball around the edge of the 18-yard box, throwing men up the pitch and trying to find an opening. Cedric Soares receives the ball but his pass into the penalty area is woeful and heads straight out of play.

Callum Wilson isn’t going to get his goal tonight. His performance warrants one but Eddie Howe brings on Dwight Gayle for the closing few minutes. Wilson leaves the pitch to a loud round of applause from the home supporters.

88 mins: This is a bad beat for Arsenal. Tottenham’s goal difference is 15 better than the Gunners meaning that they just need to avoid losing to Norwich on the last day of the season to secure fourth place.

GOAL! Newcastle 2 – 0 Arsenal (Bruno Guimaraes, 85’)⚽️

85 mins: Game over! Newcastle fly quickly up the pitch and feed the ball to Bruno Guimaraes. He takes a shot from the edge of the box that gets blocked. Arsenal push up as Sean Longstaff recovers the ball but Ben White is slow to react. Longstaff dinks it over to Callum Wilson in the box but he’s closed down by a sprawling Aaron Ramsdale. The ball comes loose once again but Guimaraes is on hand to guide it home!

Murphy gets stuck into the action immediately by winning a long ball and driving at Bukayo Saka. He goes around the Arsenal man and heads into the box before blasting a shot/cross over towards the back post where it goes out of play.
