Arsenal have confirmed that Sead Kolasinac and Bukayo Saka are back in contention to face Newcastle tomorrow afternoon.
Although Saka has performed well recently, head coach Mikel Arteta may well choose Kolasinac at left-back, with David Luiz, Shkodran Mustafi and Hector Bellerin lining up alongside him in defence.
Matteo Guendouzi has been in decent form and the young Frenchman should keep his place in the middle of the park, partnering Granit Xhaka. Mesut Ozil is expected to retain the number 10 role.
The biggest decision for Arteta will come in the front three. Alexandre Lacazette continues to struggle for form, and with the Gunners having fired blanks versus Burnley last time out, Pierre Emerick Aubameyang may well be moved back into a central position.
With that being the case, Nicolas Pepe may well come into the starting eleven ahead of Lacazette, with Gabriel Martinelli taking up his role on the left flank.
Arsenal’s Predicted XI To Face Newcastle:
Leno, Bellerin, Mustafi, Luiz, Kolasinac, Guendouzi, Ozil, Xhaka, Pepe, Aubameyang, Martinelli
