Arsenal will face a huge challenge of their Premier League title credentials when Newcastle arrive at the Emirates on Tuesday night.

The Gunners are seven points clear of champions Manchester City at the top of the table following their 4-2 win against Brighton at the Amex on New Year's Eve. They've dropped just five points all season and won five consecutive Premier League games.

Yet Newcastle are also in brilliant form. They've lost just one league game this season and sit third in the table - nine points behind Arsenal having played a game more. They've conceded just 11 league goals this term - boasting the toughest defence in the division.

When is Arsenal vs Newcastle?

Arsenal vs Newcastle will kick-off at 7:45pm on Tuesday, January 3 at the Emirates.

The two Premier League giants haven't faced each other yet this season, with their second meeting at St James' Park scheduled for May 6. In fact, they haven't clashed since Newcastle's 2-0 home win last May - a result that all but ended Arsenal's top-four hopes.

The Gunners were on course to qualify for the Champions League for the first time since the 2015/16 term before that trip to St James' Park. A Ben White own goal and a strike from Bruno Guimaraes dashed Arsenal's dream. Mikel Arteta's side will be out for revenge.

Arsenal vs Newcastle team news

Arsenal did not pick up any injuries during their win against Brighton, although long-term absentees Gabriel Jesus (knee), Emile Smith Rowe (groin) and Reiss Nelson (hamstring) are still unavailable. It's hoped the latter two are close to a return to fitness.

As such, the Gunners are expected to name an unchanged XI. Newcastle, meanwhile, will be without Alexander Isak (thigh), Paul Dummett (back), Emil Krafth (knee), Jonjo Shelvey (calf), and Matt Targett (heel) for Tuesday night's Premier League game.

Martin Dubravka will be available after being recalled from his loan spell at Manchester United, while Loris Karius' future is in doubt after his short-term contract expired on New Year's Day. Newcastle haven't confirmed whether he has signed a new deal.

Matty Longstaff has also been recalled from his loan spell at League Two side Colchester, but he will not play again for some time. The 22-year-old has suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury and isn't expected to make his comeback until next season.
