The Gunners’ recent resurgence was halted by Roy Hodgson’s side, who put in a disciplined defensive effort to leave the Emirates on one point after a 0-0 draw.

These two teams last met just a week ago. Arsenal eventually won 2-0 after the FA Cup third-round draw went into overtime.

The magpies are in terrible shape. Their last bad result was a 1-0 loss to Sheffield United, who had previously not won a league game for the entire season.

Date, start time and venue

Arsenal against Newcastle is scheduled for Monday 18th January 2021 at 8 p.m.

The game will be played behind closed doors at the Emirates Stadium due to the current coronavirus restrictions.


TV Channel: The game will be broadcast on Sky Sports.

Live stream: Sky Sports subscribers can watch the game online via the website or the Sky Go app.

Arsenal had to do without both Kieran Tierney and Pablo Mari in their last game and while neither injury is considered serious it remains to be seen whether they both return. Same goes for Gabriel Martinelli, who injured his ankle ahead of the FA Cup meeting between these teams last Saturday.

Better news for Mikel Arteta is that Thomas Partey has returned in the draw with Crystal Palace, while Gabriel is available again after being an unused substitute in that game.

Arsenal Predicted Lineup: Leno; Bellerin, Hlding, Luiz, Tierney; Ceballos, Xhaka; So, Smith Rowe, Aubameyang; Lacazette


Prediction: Arsenal 2-0 Newcastle

It took the introduction of the likes of Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe before Arsenal opened the door to the FA Cup fight a week ago, but with Arteta likely to make his XI first pick from the start, the Gunners should have had enough.
