Newcastle United

Calum Chambers- 5

Following the weekend's matches in the league, Arsenal are sixth with 54 points from 33 games while Burnley are on 52 points after 33 matches.

As was expected, Benítez named an unchanged side for the game after his side's 2-1 victory away to Leicester City last weekend.

Kenedy clipped the woodwork on the break but the miss counted for little, with Arsenal's faint top-four hopes all but over as they now face a battle to stay in the top six.

Rafa Benitez's side were hoping to take advantage of Arsenal's exploits in Europe, with the Gunners only returning from Russian Federation on Friday after sealing their place in the semi-final of the Europa League with a 6-3 aggregate victory over CSKA Moscow.

At the end of the Premier League game when, courtesy of a fourth straight win, Benitez's Newcastle banished any lingering relegation fears and the debate about Jonjo Shelvey's England candidature reopened, Arsene Wenger once again reached for his metaphorical tin helmet.

Are the fans of exhausted of this season and do not care how it pans out, even if Arsenal go on to win the Europa League?

Newcastle sensed the chance for a first home league win over Arsenal since 2005 and Ritchie proved to be the hero, finishing in style on 68 minutes to move the Magpies onto 41 points, 13 above the bottom three.

I can see Man Utd winning here, but I've never seen anything like their performance on Sunday against West Brom at the highest level.

"40 points was the target at the start of the season and hopefully we've done enough now to secure our Premier League status", Ritchie told Sky Sports.

"But I felt overall today the fact we played on Thursday night, in the second half we couldn't raise the tempo and keep it up in the first half. The board is trying to get us to sit down and talk about the future so we can spend more time here and build a stronger team". We had 70 per cent of the ball, had been 1-Zero up and in the long run, you lose 2-1 and also you surprise how one can lose this sport.
