CONFIRMED: Arsenal and Newcastle United line-ups

Emirates Inside

Here is how Arsenal and Newcastle United will line up for their Premier League match this evening:

Arsenal starting XI: Sczcesny, Bellerin, Debuchy, Mertesacker, Gibbs, Flamini, Cazorla, Oxlade-Chamberlin, Alexis, Welbeck, Giroud

Arsenal subs: Martinez, Ajayi, Coquelin, Maitland-Niles, Campbell, Podolski, Sanogo

Newcastle starting XI: Alnwick, Janmaat, Williamson, Coloccini, Dummett, Tiote, Colback, Gouffran, Perez, Ameobi, Cisse

Newcastle subs: Woodman, Haidara, Anita, Vuckic, Cabella, Armstrong, Riviere

Arsenal got over their Premier League defeat to Stoke City in fine style last week, defeating Galatasaray 4-1 in their final Champions League group game.

It was not enough to give Arsene Wenger’s side top spot but it will have given them plenty of confidence going into this evening’s game.

Newcastle are currently level on points with Arsenal and will be eying a victory that will see them leap-frog a side many tipped for a top-four finish this season.

Few were saying that of Newcastle but Alan Pardew’s men have been brilliant recently and they will want to show just how far they have come against the North London club.
