- Third-placed Newcastle travel to face leaders on Tuesday
- Mikel Arteta praises ‘incredible’ work of Eddie Howe
Mikel Arteta believes third-placed Newcastle will present “a big test” for his Premier League leaders as Arsenal attempt on Tuesday night to open a 10-point gap on Manchester City.
Arsenal’s 4-2 win at Brighton on New Year’s Eve extended their lead to seven points after City had drawn with Everton. Eddie Howe’s team visit the Emirates having also dropped two points on Arteta’s team on Saturday in being held to a goalless draw by Leeds. City do not play again until they travel to Chelsea on Thursday.
