Attack – Saka, Lacazette, Aubameyang
Bukayo Saka looks likely to continue on the right of Arsenal’s attack having impressed in recent weeks.
Alexandre Lacazette has found form leading the line and is set to continue as the focal point of the front line.
Gabriel Martinelli may be fit after a recent foot injury, but Arteta could stick with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the left so as not to rush the teenager’s return.
Nicolas Pepe had little impact after replacing Maitland-Niles against Palace and may have to settle for a place on the bench again.
Arsenal predicted line-up vs Newcastle (4-2-3-1): Leno; Bellerin, Luiz, Holding, Tierney; Partey, Xhaka; Saka, Smith-Rowe, Aubameyang; Lacazette.
