Byrne makes critical mass to deny Saka

22′ Newcastle 0-0 Arsenal

Finally, Arsenal’s attack came to life and could have been the opening goal of the match. Saka played one and two goals on the edge of the penalty area and curled the ball into the bottom corner of Dubravka’s goal but Byrne was positioned correctly to block it behind for a corner kick.

Tense start for Ramsdale

18′ Newcastle 0-0 Arsenal

Ramsdale has looked really shaky against Arsenal so far. I mentioned that Almiron nearly slipped the ball off his toes a few moments ago and was just called up to tackle a low cross that veered into the middle of the six-yard area. Fortunately, White was on hand to remove the danger.

Newcastle around Arsenal so far

13 ‘Newcastle 0-0 Arsenal

If you did not know, you would definitely not guess which team is chasing for a place in the Champions League this evening. Arsenal have been touched by the occasion so far and they desperately need to find their rhythm or else they will find themselves a target behind them before they know it.

Ramsdale almost ends up in hot water!

9′ Newcastle 0-0 Arsenal

We’ve seen goalkeeper fouls with the ball at his feet a few times already this season and Ramsdale almost gave Newcastle an early lead.

He showed a lot of the ball to Almiron who touched the ball but couldn’t direct it to the back of the net. Arsenal did not settle at all in the first nine minutes.

How good is the pre-match presentation?

7′ Newcastle 0-0 Arsenal

I mentioned it a few times so it’s only right to show you how good the show was before the match.

The hosts had possession of the ball early

4′ Newcastle 0-0 Arsenal

The intentions of the inner side are clear based on the opening exchanges. They have barely allowed Arsenal to touch the ball yet, which is not something Arteta would be particularly pleased with.

The two teams took to the field within a few minutes until the start of the match. The stands at St James’ Park paint a very impressive picture with flags frantically being waved by every fan in the house.

Big night for this guy

We’ll find out in the next hour if White is really fit to compete this evening. After Holding’s disastrous performance against Tottenham, it was a huge night for the 24-year-old alongside Gabriel in the visitors’ defense.

Both teams are looking for an answer

Both Newcastle and Arsenal were at the end of heavy defeats in their last game as Newcastle beat Manchester City and Mikel Arteta’s side lost the north London derby 3-0.

While tonight’s win means a lot more to one team than the other, both will be desperate to add three points to their tally as the season winds down.

Will either team do enough to win the match or will it end with a share of points?

In about 25 minutes, both teams will be standing in the tunnel waiting to reach the pitch.

This video from Arsenal’s Twitter shows the exact walks of the 22 players, and match officials, moments before kick-off, and it looks like they’ll be greeted with a dazzling display.

Playing for a place in the Premier League…

Getting away from tonight’s North East event for a very brief moment, there’s a huge game tonight at John Smith Stadium in West Yorkshire. Huddersfield will host Luton in the second leg of the tournament semi-finals, where the winner will receive a place at Wembley.

Jon Russell was one of the players on loan with the Terriers recently and was met by Greg O’Keeffe for the great interview you can read below.

The transformation no one expected

Having been considered one of the Premier League’s biggest failures for much of his time at Newcastle following his £40m move from Hoffenheim in 2019, Joelinton is now a cult hero at St James’ Park.

Such was the quality of his transformation, as he won the club’s Player of the Year award, as announced earlier today. Fans absolutely adore him now as you can see from the photo above!

Monday night football is under the spotlight here

Newcastle supporters no longer groan when they realize their team is playing. It doesn’t feel like a chore to take a trip to St James’ Park anymore.

Nights like this one – with many expecting to dent Arsenal’s top-four hopes – are what Magpies fans have wanted for years and there could be plenty of big football nights on the horizon in Tyneside.

Detail team news

White’s return at the heart of Arsenal’s defense would likely be huge, if he fits in well. His absence at Tottenham on Thursday night was one of the main reasons Arsenal suffered a comprehensive defeat.

As for tonight’s hosts, they will be delighted to see Wilson return for their last home game of the season. Fortunately, his absence through injury was not too costly due to the investment in January, but his time on the sidelines initially looked ominous. He will be in desperate need of a point in front of the beloved Newcastle fans this evening.

Newcastle team news: Wilson returns to Newcastle

Like White, Callum Wilson was also passed as fit to start after it wasn’t clear if he was at the required level of fitness. Chris Wood leaves, as well as Jamal Lascelles who has been replaced by Fabian Char.

Returning to the side, Wilson wears the captain’s insignia.

After doubts over whether he would be fit, Ben White returned to Arsenal’s ranks as a match starter in place of suspended Rob Holding. Emile Smith-Rowe and Nuno Tavares are the other two players promoted to the squad to replace Gabriel Martinelli and Cedric Soares.

Big show expected tonight

Since capturing the Magpies back in October, St James’ Park has become an atmospheric cauldron once again after life drained of it under the direction of Mike Ashley & co.

The work done by fan group Wor Flags has been a major part of helping the ambiance inside the stadium and it looks as if they put on one of their biggest shows to date set and ready to go this evening.
