Arsenal have made the long trek up to Tyneside for this evening’s Barclay’s Premier League match, and the Gunners have a great chance to move three points clear of Aston Villa, who visit Anfield tomorrow. The importance of this fixture cannot be stressed enough. I do not believe Villa will get all three points off of Liverpool tomorrow, so this is our chance to move into fourth place for good. Newcastle is now in the relegation zone after today’s results, so they will also be looking to do whatever is necessary to grab all three points. With three of the top six teams already losing this afternoon, Arsenal fans will be praying another upset is not on the cards.

Starting Lineup: Almunia, Sagna, Gallas, Toure, Clichy, Nasri, Denilson, Diaby, Arshavin, van Persie, Bendtner
