A group of Newcastle United players were spotted at the Premier League Darts last night ahead of the Magpies' clash against Arsenal this weekend.

Dan Burn, Sean Longstaff, Paul Dummett, Harvey Barnes, Mark Gillespie were all in attendance at the Utilita Arena, alongside injured players Elliot Anderson and Matt Targett.

Eddie Howe revealed the pair are closing in on a return to action, claiming at the start of the week they are "due to be training very soon, hopefully within the next 10 days." The Magpies have been without Anderson for the last four months because of a back injury, while Targett hasn't played since the start of November after requiring surgery on his hamstring.

And Anderson and Targett were amongst their fellow players last night watching on as Michael van Gerwen beat Luke Littler, Gerwyn Price and Nathan Aspinall.

That's as far as the fun went it seems, with the United players' table covered in bottles of water.

Newcastle United are gearing up to their Premier League clash away at Arsenal on Saturday 24 February (8pm kick-off.)
