Arsenal will lock horns with Newcastle United at the Emirates on Saturday evening, hoping to pick up a win on their home turf. The Gunners will be heading into the contest on the back of a disappointing 4-0 loss to Liverpool, whereas the Magpies recorded a 3-3 draw versus Brentford last week.

Eddie Howe will probably opt for the 5-2-3 formation; however, he might keep changes to a minimum for the upcoming away encounter.

Karl Darlow will continue to operate in between the sticks for the visitors. The English shot-stopper would be hoping to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Saturday.

Eddie Howe is expected to field the defensive trio of Fabian Schar, Jamaal Lascelles, and Ciaran Clark at the heart of the Magpies’ backline. Their main objective would be to track and close down the potential openings the Sheffield front-men might create.

Jacob Murphy is a guaranteed starter at the right wing-back spot, whereas Matt Ritchie will fill in on the other flank as the left wing-back.

Joe Willock and Jonjo Shelvey are expected to start in the central midfield positions. The duo would be determined to set up some clear-cut goal-scoring chances for the front men.

Ryan Fraser will have to settle for a place on the bench but could come on in the second half of the game if needed.


Joelinton and Allan Saint-Maximin will take up the wide positions, playing down the right and left-wing, respectively.

Callum Wilson will lead the line for the visitors against Arsenal this weekend. The striker will be hoping to get his name on the scoresheet when he faces off against the Arsenal defence that has kept three clean sheets in their last five matches across all competitions.
