Arsenal v Newcastle United

29th March 2019, 17:52 by Bobbie Jackson

Arsenal will look to make it 10 successive home Premier League victories when they host Newcastle on Monday.

The Gunners’ home record has gone under the radar, having not lost at home in the league since falling at the hands of Manchester City on the opening day.

With the race for the top four gathering pace, they can ill-afford to drop any points at the Emirates and will hope to come through Monday’s game unscathed.

Unai Emery will be thankful for their late return after the international break as they look to hold off a resurgent Newcastle.

Lucas Torriera is certain to miss out due to suspension but Aaron Ramsey is likely to get the nod after a thigh injury.

Nacho Monreal was also on the sidelines with a thigh problem but has returned to training, while Granit Xhaka will need to come through a late fitness test.

Danny Welbeck, Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding are all still in the treatment room and need more time.

Newcastle are potentially just a couple of wins away from safety after a huge improvement in performances since the turn of the year. Just one defeat in their last six Premier League games has propelled them well clear of the bottom three.

But they have failed to win at the Emirates since 2010 when Andy Carroll netted the only goal in a 1-0 victory.

Fabian Schar will sit this one out as he completes a two-game suspension after picking up 10 yellow cards.

Captain Jamaal Lascelles has recovered from a knee problem and should be recalled but Sean Longstaff is sidelined with the same issue.

Arsenal have won their last six home Premier League games against the Magpies, scoring 18 times and conceding just five.
