Team News: Newcastle United
Jonjo Shelvey (Calf Problems) and Joe Willock (Knee Injury) are not available for Newcastle United gaffer Eddie Howe.
It looks as if The Magpies could opt for a 4-3-3 system for the game, beginning the first half with Martin Dubravka, Emil Krafth, Fabian Schaer, Daniel Burn, Matt Targett, Bruno Guimaraes, Sean Longstaff, Joelinton, Miguel Almiron, Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin.
Team News: Arsenal
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has to currently contend with reduced team options. Thomas Partey (Unknown Injury) and Kieran Tierney (Knee Surgery) can’t be considered.
From our viewpoint, The Gunners could decide to elect for a 4-2-3-1 system, going with Aaron Ramsdale, Cedric Soares, Ben White, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Nuno Tavares, Mohamed Elneny, Granit Xhaka, Bukayo Saka, Martin Oedegaard, Gabriel Martinelli and Edward Nketiah.
Our assessment here is that Newcastle United will really need to work well to put one past this Arsenal team who we think should manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
We’re going for a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 0-1 advantage for Arsenal at the end of this game.
