Newcastle United Team News
Fabian Schar was forced off against Brentford due to a hamstring strain, therefore Emil Krafth might be brought into the defence if Howe continues with a three-man backline.
Joe Willock has lost his goal-scoring touch, but he will try to start against his former team, as will Isaac Hayden, and Martin Dubravka could return in goal.
The visitors’ only confirmed absence is Paul Dummett, while Dwight Gayle is questionable with a thigh issue and Howe will return to the dugout after recuperating from coronavirus.
Arsenal Team News
Arsenal have no new injury concerns for this match, and Arteta has given the hosts a big boost over Granit Xhaka (knee), who may now be in position for a return before the end of the calendar year.
Sead Kolasinac is still recovering from a major ankle injury, but there could be a change at left-back, with Kieran Tierney replacing Nuno Tavares following the Portuguese’s nervous performance at Anfield.
Aside from Tierney’s return, it should be business as usual for the Gunners, with Albert Sambi Lokonga holding down his midfield spot despite competition from Ainsley Maitland-Niles.
Arsenal XI: Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tierney; Saka, Partey, Lokonga, Smith Rowe; Aubameyang, Lacazette
Newcastle United XI: Dubravka; Krafth, Lascelles, Clark; Murphy, Willock, Hayden, Ritchie; Joelinton, Wilson, Saint-Maximin
