Arsenal Team News: Predicted starting XI to face Newcastle United in Premier League clash
RB: Hector Bellerin
The return of Hector Bellerin from long-term injury has been a big boost for the club, with the Spaniard also scoring a vital equalising goal away at Stamford Bridge a few weeks ago.
CB: David Luiz
Despite being unconvincing since his move from Chelsea, the experienced Brazilian seems to be the club’s first-choice centre-back and will no doubt face off against his old club.
CB: Shkodran Mustafi
Arteta seems to have made Mustafi is first-choice man to partner Luiz. In their last outing they manage to keep a clean sheet away at Burnley, despite coming under heavy pressure.
LB: Bukayo Saka
With Kieran Tierney out injured and Sead Kolasinac not match-sharp, Arteta may be forced to play youngster Saka out of position like he has done on numerous occasions since his arrival at the club.
