Arsenal v Newcastle team news

Arsenal: Kieran Tierney was a shock absentee against Palace as a precaution due to muscle tightness. He remains a doubt to start here.

Gabriel Martinelli and Pablo Mari are also listed as doubts, but otherwise Arteta has a near-full squad to select from.

Newcastle: Ryan Fraser will miss the game against a side who were interested in signing him before Newcastle swooped.

Allan Saint-Maximin remains absent due to the after-effects of COVID-19, while Paul Dummett, Jamaal Lascelles, Jonjo Shelvey and Jamal Lewis are all doubts.

Our prediction: Arsenal v Newcastle

Arsenal are not fixed, they're not 'back', they're not at full tilt, but they are taking steps and making steady progress.

Arteta needs to strike the right balance between defensive stability and attacking freedom, but he appears to be getting closer to that end goal.

A victory could lift the Gunners above Chelsea and into more familiar waters this weekend depending on other results, and Newcastle are in no shape to pose a clinical threat to their chances.

Our prediction: Arsenal 1-0 Newcastle
