When and Where: The Barclays Premier League match kicks off from the Emirates at 4 p.m. ET. The game will be screened on ESPN2, while a live stream is also available on ESPN3. If you're in the U.K. the match will be available online via SkyGo.
Preview: Though they may have been knocked out of the Champions last week at the hands of AC Milan, a 3-0 win on the night means that Arsenal should maintain the momentum they picked up courtesy of impressive league victories over Tottenham and Liverpool.
And with German forward Lukas Podolski looking set to arrive in the summer, there is finally some light at the Emirates after what had become to look like a desperate decline in the club's fortunes.
But while most of the pre-match attention will focus on the home side, it should not be forgotten that Newcastle sit just five points behind Arsenal in the Premier League after an excellent campaign to date.
Magpies boss Alan Pardew would love nothing more than to put the cat among the pigeons by upsetting the in-form Gunners.
But Pardew will also be eager to see his side return to their best after three games without a win that featured a 5-0 hammering at Tottenham and disappointing home draws to relegation-threatened Wolves and local rivals Sunderland.
Team News: Arsenal should have their midfield options boosted by the return of Mikel Arteta and Aaron Ramsey. The Welshman may struggle to regain his place, however, thanks to the impressive performances by Tomas Rosicky and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain against Milan.
Yossi Benayoun should also be fit for Monday's clash, while Andre Santos is back in contention after his long-term layoff.
Newcastle's only fresh injury heading into the game concerns Peter Lovenkrands, who may now miss the rest of the season with a suspected ruptured thigh muscle.
Pardew's men will again be hoping for goals from their Senegalese front pairing of Demba Ba and Papiss Demba Cisse.
Prediction: Newcastle triumphed 1-0 in the same fixture last season, but the form of the two sides makes it hard to see a repeat on this occasion. Robin van Persie is sure to fancy his chances of adding to his 25 goals thus far in the league against a Newcastle defense that has begun to look particularly suspect in recent weeks.
With Ba and Cisse up front, the Magpies are always a threat, but Arsenal will have just too much firepower for the away side to handle.
