Arsenal VS Newcastle United
Saturday (16/12/2017)
16:00 (WAT)
Arsenal are targeting their first victory in four Premier League matches after Wednesday's draw at West Ham.

The Gunners have not won in the League since their thumping 5-0 win over Huddersfield last month and now sit 19 points behind leaders Manchester City.

However, Arsene Wenger has refused to concede defeat in the title race as Arsenal prepare to welcome Rafael Benitez's side on Saturday.

"We have to focus on the next game," the Frenchman said after the goalless draw at the London Stadium. "City is too far away to talk about the title at the moment."


Team news
Arsenal will be without injured duo Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey for Saturday's Premier League visit of Newcastle.

Ramsey injured his hamstring in last weekend's 1-1 draw at Southampton while Walcott (groin) is also sidelined, although the Gunners could welcome back Shkodran Mustafi as the defender is back in training following a thigh complaint.

Arsene Wenger is likely to bring Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette back into his starting line-up after they were rested at West Ham, but Santi Cazorla (ankle) remains absent.

Provisional squad: Cech, Ospina, Mertesacker, Holding, Mustafi, Koscielny, Chambers, Monreal, Debuchy, Bellerin, Nelson, Kolasinac, Maitland-Niles, Wilshere, Xhaka, Elneny, Ozil, Iwobi, Sanchez, Welbeck, Lacazette, Giroud.

Jonjo Shelvey is suspended for the visitors after he was sent off late in Newcastle's defeat to Everton on Wednesday.

How they could line up
Arsenal starting XI: Cech, Bellerin, Koscielny, Monreal, Kolasinac, Elneny, Xhaka, Iwobi, Ozil, Sanchez, Lacazette

Newcastle starting XI: Darlow, Yedline, Lascelles, Lejeune, Manquillo, Perez, Merino, Ritchie, Diame, Atsu, Gayle
