In a crucial Premier League fixture, Arsenal will face Newcastle at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday night, aiming to narrow the gap between themselves and league leaders Liverpool to just two points.

Despite a disappointing 1-0 defeat against Porto in the Champions League during the week, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta will be relieved to have no new injury concerns. Fabio Vieira has returned from injury, but Thomas Partey remains sidelined. Additionally, key players such as Gabriel Jesus, Takehiro Tomiyasu, and Gabriel Jesus are also unavailable, limiting Arteta’s options for team selection against the Magpies.

Here is the predicted starting lineup for Arsenal as they take on Newcastle:

Goalkeeper: David Raya, Right-Back: Ben White, Center-Back: William Saliba, Center-Back: Gabriel Magalhaes, Left-Back: Jakub Kiwior, Midfield: Martin Odegaard, Midfield: Declan Rice, Midfield: Jorginho, Right Wing: Bukayo Saka, Striker: Kai Havertz, Left Wing: Gabriel Martinelli

In goal, David Raya is expected to maintain his place in the starting lineup ahead of Aaron Ramsdale. Defenders Ben White, William Saliba, and Gabriel Magalhaes will look to bounce back from their midweek performance against Porto and provide solidity at the back.

In midfield, Martin Odegaard, Declan Rice, and Jorginho will aim to control the tempo of the game and create opportunities against a resilient Newcastle side.

On the wings, Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli will be tasked with providing width and threatening the Newcastle defense, while Kai Havertz is set to lead the line in the absence of Gabriel Jesus.

With Arsenal looking to capitalize on Liverpool’s slip-ups and close the gap at the top of the table, Arteta will be counting on his players to deliver a strong performance and secure three crucial points against Newcastle.
