Arsenal will face Newcastle United at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League this afternoon.

Arsenal and Newcastle United will face each other in the Premier League in an hour’s time.

The Gunners will face the Magpies at the Emirates Stadium in North London.

Arsene Wenger’s side will be heavy favourites to win the match, as they are in better form and have better players.

Arsenal, who also have home advantage, returned to winning ways in the Premier League on Monday when they got the better of Bournemouth 2-0 at the Emirates.

Newcastle have done well against the top teams in the Premier League this season, and they could earn a point at the Emirates if they score an early goal.

Steve McClaren’s side will head into the game on the back of a 1-0 defeat to West Bromwich Albion away from home at The Hawthorns.

The Magpies are third from bottom in the Premier League table at the moment and are in real danger of doing down to the Championship at the end of the season.
