And welcome to the live blog for Arsenal vs Newcastle!
Arsenal are looking to get back to winning ways after being held to a goalless draw against Crystal Palace last Thursday.
Likewise, Newcastle are looking to bounce back after losing to Sheffield United last Tuesday, handing the Blades their first win in the Premier League this season.
Gunners boss Mikel Arteta will be hoping his side can continue their fine form, avoiding defeat in their last four games (1D, 3W).
Arteta’s men sit 11th in the table, 10 points off 4th place Liverpool.
And Arsenal will be confident heading into tonight’s game, winning 14 of their last 15 Premier League games against the Magpies.
The manner of the defeat against Sheffield has added to the pressure boss Steve Bruce is already under.
Newcastle have won just five of the 17 Premier League games they’ve played this season, drawing four and losing EIGHT.
Arteta will be without Spanish defender Pablo Mari and Brazilian attacker Gabriel Martinelli who is nursing an ankle injury.
On the other hand, Arsenal could have Kieran Tierney back from injury as well as Gabriel and summer signing Thomas Partey.
Ryan Fraser will miss out on tonight’s game after being sent off against Sheffield and pacey winger Allan Saint-Maximin still recovering from covid-19.
Bruce will most likely shake up his team with Miguel Almiron and Joelinton coming into the team to help out top scorer Callum Wilson.
The teamsheets are due to be released in half an hour so don’t go anywhere!
