LONDON: Fourth team of Barclays Premier League, Arsenal can take a major opportunity for UEFA Champion League qualification when they will face host team New Castle United here on Monday.
A 3-0 defeat by Everton this month left the north London club’s hopes of a top-four finish in the Barclays Premier League in big danger, leaving Roberto Martinez’s team with their European destiny into their own hands.
Earlier, Arsenal defeated New Castle by 7-3 at Emirates Stadium on December 29, 2012.
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey returned to make a first start since Boxing Day at Hull and showed glimpses of his superb early-season form, while Thomas Vermaelen could return from a hamstring strain.
Fabianski, Szczesny, Viviano, Jenkinson, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Monreal, Sagna, Vermaelen, Arteta, Cazorla, Eisfeld, Flamini, Kallstrom, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Ramsey, Rosicky, Zelalem, Bendtner, Giroud, Podolski, Sanogo.
