A draw would mean Arsenal would only need to pick up one win in their remaining two matches. However, a defeat would likely mean victory against both Newcastle and Everton are needed.
Arteta wants to treat the match like any other but knows the magnitude of the occasion. The Spaniard said: “We want to prepare and go for that match like we always do, with the same enthusiasm, but knowing obviously that this can be a defining moment and that’s an extra level of motivation and another layer for us to really go for it and I can’t wait to play that game.”
Arteta confirmed Ben White could return from his hamstring injury for the match.
