Goal Scorer:

Arsenal's Portuguese stopover in midweek saw Fabio Vieira make his return to the matchday squad after three months out with a groin injury, but Thomas Partey - who also returned to team training following a thigh operation - did not make the cut for the first leg.

All of Gabriel Jesus (knee), Takehiro Tomiyasu (knock) and Oleksandr Zinchenko (calf) were absent from the loss to Porto as well, and Arteta remains highly secretive over their respective conditions, but the quick turnaround makes a comeback on Saturday unlikely for any of them.

ACL victim Jurrien Timber is still sidelined for the long-term for Arsenal and Arteta, who may consider refreshing his midfield with the inclusions of Jorginho and Emile Smith Rowe if fresh legs are required.
Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Kiwior; Odegaard, Rice, Jorginho; Saka, Havertz, Martinelli

In terms of Newcastle's availability, the Magpies were once again without a recognised number nine against Bournemouth due to an unusual injury for Callum Wilson, who is now confirmed to be spending around 12 weeks on the sidelines with a pectoral problem.

However, Alexander Isak (groin) is closing in on a return and might be able to bolster the visitors' offensive ranks this weekend, while former Arsenal protege Joe Willock may also make his comeback from a calf problem at his old stomping ground.

Fabian Schar has also taken part in training since damaging his wrist against Bournemouth, but Sandro Tonali (suspended), Nick Pope (shoulder), Matt Targett (thigh), Joelinton (thigh) and Elliot Anderson (back) remain out of action.
Newcastle United possible starting lineup:
Dubravka; Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn; Longstaff, Guimaraes, Miley; Almiron, Gordon, Barnes

Prediction: Arsenal 2-1 Newcastle United
