Team News

Arsenal
Newcastle
  • Thomas Partey is set to make his return from injury in Saturday's FA Cup third round clash with fellow Premier League side Newcastle. Gabriel could also return after a spell out with illness.
  • Mikel Arteta is set to make several changes after an up-turn in form for the Gunners, though it would be a surprise to see back-up goalkeeper Runar Alex Runarsson play after a disastrous last outing.
  • Steve Bruce will be without winger Ryan Fraser but will hope to welcome back Allan Saint-Maximin and Jamaal Lascelles from illness. Jamal Lewis is a doubt.
  • Finally back to full fitness, Martin Dubravka should make his first appearance of the season against FA Cup holders Arsenal on Saturday.
  • Integral to Newcastle's bid to beat the drop, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Callum Wilson wrapped up in cotton wool on Saturday.
  • Fresh from scoring his first goal in a long time, Andy Carroll will hope to be rewarded with a rare start this weekend as a replacement for Wilson.
  • Former Arsenal midfielder Isaac Hayden should slot back into the side after missing their last game through suspension.

Prediction

  • After a several tough weeks, Arsenal finally look to be heading in the right direction after three straight wins. Now they begin the defence of their FA Cup against Newcastle on Saturday.
  • Steve Bruce cannot catch a break at the moment. They have already faced Manchester City, Liverpool and Leicester in their last three and now face a resurgent Arsenal side.
  • Winless in six matches, it's difficult to see Newcastle causing an upset on Saturday. They haven't even scored on their last four trips to the Emirates and it's expected to remain that way.
