Good night for Newcastle, not so good for Arsenal

Champions League qualification is no longer in Arsenal’s hands, after suffering a 2-0 defeat to Newcastle United at St James’ Park. The Gunners find themselves behind Tottenham Hotspur going into the final day. Their North London rivals are 13 points better off in terms of goal difference, meaning that even a draw for Spurs would likely confine Arsenal to a place in the Europa League.
