Team news: Arsenal unchanged for Newcastle visit


Just three days after our 4-2 win away to Brighton, Mikel Arteta has named the same side for the visit of third-placed Newcastle United.

It means Eddie Nketiah continues to lead the line up front, after scoring in each of his past two starts, with Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli either side of him after their goalscoring exploits on Saturday.

In-form Martin Odegaard captains the side again, with Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey also in midfield.

It’s the same back four, with Alex Zinchenko and Ben White at full back and Gabriel partnering William Saliba in the middle, in front of Aaron Ramsdale in goal.

There’s one change on the bench, with 19-year-old striker Nathan Butler-Oyedeji among the nine subs.

Newcastle, who are unbeaten since August, make just one change, with Callum Wilson replacing Chris Wood up front.

Arsenal: Ramsdale, White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko, Partey, Xhaka, Odegaard, Saka, Martinelli, Nketiah.

Subs: Turner, Cedric, Tomiyasu, Tierney, Holding, Elneny, Lokonga, Vieira, Marquinhos.

Newcastle: Pope, Trippier, Botman, Schar, Burn, Willock, Longstaff, Guimaraes, Joelinton, Almiron, Wilson.

Subs: Dubravka, Lascelles, Lewis, Manquillo, Ritchie, Murphy, Anderson, Wood, Saint-Maximin.
