Live television broadcast and highlights details for the Premier League fixture between Newcastle United and Arsenal.

Newcastle United will hope to boost their hopes of landing a Champions League place and inflict a blow on Arsenal’s Premier League title push when the two sides meet at St James Park on Sunday afternoon.

Eddie Howe’s men battled their way to a goalless draw in the previous meeting with the Gunners earlier this season and they have shown up well against Mikel Arteta’s side over the last 12 months. Last season’s clash on Tyneside proved to be something of a landmark moment for the United boss as his side produced a performance full of energy and ability to claim a 2-0 win over their visitors.

The Gunners will arrive on Tyneside without midfielder Mohamed Elneny and defensive duo Takehiro Tomiyasu and William Saliba, with all three players unlikely to feature for the remainder of the season. Brazilian centre-back Gabriel is also an injury concern for Mikel Arteta and is rated as a doubt for the game.

Magpies manager Eddie Howe will make late calls on Allan Saint-Maximin and Sean Longstaff as they both near fitness after recovering from thigh and ankle injuries respectively. However, Emil Krafth and Jamaal Lascelles will not feature again this season and Ryan Fraser remains unavailable.

What has Eddie Howe said ahead of the game

“I think it’s a different game (to last season’s 2-0 win against the Gunners). We’ve come a long way in that period of time, I think Arsenal have come a long way in that period of time. I think you’ll see two teams who have improved since that point, totally different game and totally different circumstances. So I’m not really looking back at that game too much, that’s in the past.

“I’ve got a lot of respect for Mikel, he’s done an incredible job when you consider the team he picked up and the position they were in, to the team he has now and the way that they are playing. You have to admire everything that he’s done. There’s a lot of respect from me to him, but within games you’ll always have moments where you come up against opponents, there’s a bit of confrontation and I think that’s natural. That’s part of the job. there’s certainly no issues my side.”

What has Mikel Arteta said ahead of the game?

“We have four games to go, we are top of the league, it was one of the things we talked about tonight - can we go back and go where we’ve been for many months and now we have to wait and see, we know it’s not in our hands. We’re going to try to [take it all the way] against Newcastle, we have another tough match, but we’ll be preparing to win.”
