Hopefully we are up for it but we could be on the beach. Really hope we go at it for a top 10 finish.

If I was a Newcastle fan I'd be confident in this game. Although we are on a good run we have not played away in the league in during the run 1.0 Newcastle is my prediction

Seeing that Arsenal team, I might back a Newcastle win...

Arsenal haven't won any of their last 6 away games so we should have an interesting game.

They kind of need a win to secure 6th place as Burnley are only 2 points behind them.

Mustafi finds Aubameyang with a perfectly placed long ball, he lofts it in to Lacazette to volley in from a close angle. 1-0 Arsenal!

Shit tackle by Kenedy on Lacazette goes unpunished.

Lacazette recovers to put Arsenal 1-0 up!

Brilliant play by Mustafi and Aubameyang there, class finish by Lacazette as well to give us the lead.

and that's a better equaliser for Newcastle! Good run by Gayle picked up Shelvey, laid off wide and the cross is turned in very nicely from Perez.

Not sure if it’s mostly a case of MOTD-form, but Perez has looked a lot better for Newcastle recently.

Edit: poor from Willock but Lacazette didn’t exactly give the guy a great ball.

2-1 Newcastle!

Where was Arsenal's defence?! 

Slimani flicks on to Perez, deftly flicked on to Ritchie and he scores past Cech with his right foot. Nice finish actually.

How painfully predictable that after another game where we can't break a team down, Slimani's done it to Arsenal within minutes of coming in.

He'll be good for them I think.

Slimani has done well since coming on.

God knows how people think these will win the Europa. What chance have they got against Atletico?

Newcastle defending well again just like last week. Getting bodies on the line and in the way of Arsenal shots/attacks. Good foundation to start from to get a win!

Arsenal never really looked like scoring again to be honest. Even when Newcastle equalised, it always looked like they would go on to win as opposed to Arsenal.

0 points away from home in 2018... yet this man still hangs on. Even when Atletico inevatably dispatch us in the Europa League he will still be here next season, you just know it.

Arsenal haven't got a single point in 2018 away from home. Unreal. 

Wait til 9th May though. They'll pick us off with ease.

Aubameyang is pretty much averaging a goal a game in the league since he's joined us. So what masterstroke does Wenger pull? He plays him on the wing... 

Why not just go two up top or maybe Lacazette just off him? He has no flexibility.

Strong rumours that Wenger has agreed to leave end of season. Brendan Rodgers will take over.

I can't see that ending well for Arsenal.

Obviously we’re just thinking about the Europa League right now which is part of the reason this has occurred. To be honest, if it works it’s worth it for Wenger.

We've been a disaster away from home this season but thankfully we've been so shit this season that this loss doesn't even mean much... Can't say the lineup said we care about this game much anyway. Ozil, Ramsey & Wilshere all left out with Mkhitaryan already out injured which left the midfield with very little creativity. Meh.

Arsenal were alright first half and we were lucky to be level at the break. It's only because Shelvey was on the money with quality passing that we stayed in the game.

2nd half not sure what the exact cause was but arsenal dropped right off and offerend nothing.
