The final weeks of the English Premier League are upon us and the battle for fourth place in the league between Everton and Arsenal is still going strong.
Arsenal can take another step forward on Monday afternoon as they host Newcastle (3 p.m., NBC Sports Network) in a huge late-season match that could determine whether the Gunners play UEFA Champions League soccer next season. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain misses out due to injury, but Arsene Wenger can rely on Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil to work their magic in midfield.
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew returns to the bench and has picked a physically strong side to dominate the middle of the field.
In Italy, Juventus sit just four points away from clinching a historic third-straight Serie A title, and they face relegation-threatened Sassuolo today (2:45 p.m., beIN Sports USA) on the road. Even with a key match against Benfica on Thursday, Antonio Conte has picked a strong side that includes Andrea Pirlo, Paul Pogba, and Carlos Tevez.
If you will be watching today’s match, please feel free to leave your thoughts, some play-by-play and analysis in the comments section below.
Enjoy the action.
