LONDON (AP):

Arsenal will look to reclaim their place in the English Premier League’s top four at the expense of north London rivals Tottenham, with a win at Newcastle today.

Tottenham beat Burnley 1-0 yesterday to move two points above Arsenal in the fight for Champions League qualification. If Arsenal win at St James’ Park, Mikel Arteta’s team knows another win at home to Everton on the final day would secure a top-four finish.

Third place is still up for grabs, too. Chelsea currently occupy that spot and are two points ahead of Tottenham. Arsenal have injury concerns at centre back, with Ben White and Gabriel doubts and Rob Holding suspended.

In Italy, Juventus will be seeking a positive result against Lazio in their final home game in Serie A after another difficult season. Massimiliano Allegri’s team is guaranteed to finish fourth in the league and lost both the Italian Cup final and the Italian Super Cup to Inter Milan. Lazio, however, need the points in their push for a European place. Fiorentina are hoping to qualify for Europe and travel to Sampdoria.
