Can you play striker, lad?

Newcastle head to Arsenal with the chance to play spoiler for the Gunner's Top 4 hopes. If Newcastle could get a win, it might be a bit of revenge for last year's 1-0 loss at St. James' Park that saw Arsenal leap into the Top 4 and continue their impressive run of qualifying for the Champion's League.

Newcastle, of course, have little to play for. You might say pride, but that hasn't stopped them yet.
