  • Sead Kolasinac is in contention to make a return from injury along with Reiss Nelson and Bukayo Saka is also available following a knock.
  • The Gunners will still be without January acquisitions Cedric Soares and Pablo Mari but the pair should both be fit by the end of the month.

NEWCASTLE

  • Newcastle were second best but earned another valuable point as they played out a 0-0 draw at home to Norwich in their last league game.
  • Steve Bruce's side made it eight games unbeaten in all competitions with their FA Cup win over Oxford but needed extra-time to win that tie.
  • The Magpies should be boosted by the return of several injured players whilst Almiron and Joelinton are both expected to be fit.

Predicted line-up (5-4-1): Dubravka; Yedlin, Fernandez, Lascelles, Clark, Rose; Almiron, Hayden, Bentaleb, Saint-Maximin; Joelinton

Doubtful: Joelinton (Injured), Almiron (Injured), Muto (Injured), Gayle (Injured), Manquillo (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Arsenal have failed to win any of their last four Premier League matches with all of those games ending in a stalemate. They now host a Newcastle side that have avoided defeat in their last eight matches in all competitions but the Gunners are capable of bringing that run to an end.
