ARSENAL will be hoping to make the North London derby a distant memory when they take on Newcastle United THIS MONDAY.
The Gunners' unforced errors enabled Tottenham to pick them apart on Thursday.
Which prevented Mikel Arteta's men from wrapping up fourth spot early and allowed Spurs to close the gap on them to just ONE point.
However, that final Champions League place is still in their hands as long as they match or better Tottenham's next two results.
And that starts with a tough trip up North where a rejuvenated Newcastle awaits despite their recent pummelling by Manchester City.
