2021/22 English Premier League

Matchday 37

Newcastle United v Arsenal

St James' Park
Newcastle upon Tyne, England
Monday, 16 May 2022
Kick-off is at 20h00  
An important three points will be up for grabs when Newcastle welcome Arsenal to St James' Park for a Premier League encounter on Monday, May 16.
The Magpies are 13th in the standings on 43 points with two matches left to play, but they could still theoretically be relegated if Leeds, Burnley and Everton win all their remaining games.
Eddie Howe's side came up against the league's top two most recently, having put in a spirited performance in a 1-0 defeat to Liverpool before being thumped 5-0 by Manchester City over the weekend.

Howe felt they could have defended better for some of City's goals, but admitted the league leaders were always going to be a real handful at Eastlands.
"Manchester City can do that to anyone, they are that good. I thought the crowd were very good for them, it was a very good atmosphere," he said.
"We lost a runner for the first goal and we concede from two set-plays. When you consider all the ways they can score that is a no-no.
"Whenever you come here, you know you are going to concede chances. We had the first big chance of the game, unfortunately we did not take it."
The Gunners took a big step towards securing a top-four finish when they beat Leeds 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium this past weekend.
Mikel Arteta's team have now won four games on the spin to open up a four-point gap to fifth-placed Tottenham ahead of the 191st North London derby on Thursday.

Arteta is relishing the prospect of ending their arch-rivals' hopes of Champions League football, but acknowledges that it could all still go very wrong for the Gunners in their final three outings.
"We want to prepare and go for that match like we always do, with the same enthusiasm, but knowing obviously that this can be a defining moment and that's an extra level of motivation and another layer for us to really go for it and I can't wait to play that game," the Spaniard said.
"We know that nothing has been achieved yet and still a lot of things and a lot of minutes to play to do what we want to achieve."
