The mighty Gunners look to move to within a point of their North London rivals if they can`t wrestle 3 points away from Newcastle United at The Grove tonight.

After The Arsenal fought back from 2-0 down to conquer the very twitchy Tottenham we`ve managed a pretty nice run of form. A win tonight would mean five wins in the last five league games.

Another plus point would mean we would also be 8 points in front of Newcastle, pretty much ensuring the last two Champions League places will be fought over by Chelsea, Tottenham and ourselves ? Unless of course we fill our pants with a rather large Tottenham.
