Arsenal travel to the North East on Sunday afternoon to take on Newcastle United in the Premier League.

With the Gunners’ focus now firmly on the Europa League – it’s their best chance of qualifying for the Champions League next season – Arsène Wenger may opt to make changes to his side.

After a slight scare in Moscow on Thursday evening, late goals from Danny Welbeck and Aaron Ramsey confirmed Arsenal’s place in the last four of the competition.

While they are sixth in the Premier League, fifth place Chelsea are spluttering to the finish line. While finishing outside the top four isn’t acceptable, finishing fifth would at least be a sign the club hasn’t regressed hugely from last term.
