Photos: Two Arsenal prospects train with first team ahead of Newcastle clash

Arsenal Emirates

Newcastle United will take on Arsenal at St. James’ Park in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Arsenal players were training on Friday ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash against Newcastle United away from home.

The Gunners head into the match match as favourites, despite being the visiting team.

The North London outfit have not been made a great start to the season, but they will be encouraged with four points from their last two league matches.

Arsene Wenger’s side played out a goalless draw with Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium on Monday.

Meanwhile, Newcastle will head into the home match on the back of a 4-1 hammering of Northampton Town at St. James' Park in the second round of League Cup.

Among the Arsenal players training on Saturday were two talented teenage players, Donyell Malen and Marcus Agyei-Tabi.

Malen joined Arsenal from Dutch giants Ajax earlier this summer. The 16-year-old is a highly-rated striker who is expected to break into the Gunners’ first team in the coming years.

Agyei-Tabi is a versatile midfielder who can play either centrally or out wide. The teenage is comfortable on the ball and is also strong defensively.

The duo are quite far from getting a place in the Arsenal first team, but it seems that manager Wenger rates them highly enough to train with the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Aaron Ramsey (see photos above and below).
