Newcastle United will bring their 2012/13 Premier League campaign to a close with a home game against North London giants Arsenal.

Arsène Wenger's side, who finished third in the table last season to qualify for the group stages of the Champions League, will head to Tyneside on Sunday, 19th May, 2013.

It is only the second time in six seasons that the Magpies will end their league programme with a home fixture, and the third final day clash between United and the Gunners in the Premier League.

Back in 1994 - at the end of their first campaign in the Premiership - Kevin Keegan's Newcastle secured third place with a 2-0 win at St. James' Park thanks to goals from Andy Cole and Peter Beardsley.

Six years later, just five months into the new Millennium, Wenger's men were on the wrong end of a 4-2 defeat in May 2000, with a brace from Gary Speed and strikes from Alan Shearer and Andy Griffin doing the damage.

The clash is at the very opposite end of the fixture schedule compared to last season, when the two teams met on the opening day in a action-packed goalless draw that saw Arsenal forward Gervinho sent off on his league debut.

And the game also marks something of a North London double at either end of the 2012/13 campaign, with Tottenham Hotspur the visitors on the opening day in August this year.
