Jakub Kiwior starts, Jorginho dropped, Trossard decision, Arsenal predicted XI vs Newcastle
In an ideal world, Arsenal would like to go to St. James’ Park without needing to win. But that’s not where we live.
The Gunners have penned themselves into a position where only victory will do against Newcastle away. The third best team in the Premier League are in sublime form, and are the exact opposite team Mikel Arteta will want to be facing at this stage of the title race.
In this win or bust scenario it’s crucial for the Spaniard to get his team selection spot on. Here football.london takes a look at who he could start against the Magpies.
Right wing – Bukayo Saka
It’s been a relatively quiet few games for Bukayo Saka who is probably feeling the absence of William Saliba’s ability to progress the play more than most. He’ll surely still start this one though.
Centre forward – Gabriel Jesus
He may not have been at his best against Southampton and City, but Jesus is on a run of five goals in six games. If Arsenal are to win this game they’ll need him to make the Newcastle centre back’s afternoon a nightmare.
Left wing – Gabriel Martinelli
It’s a really tough choice between him and Leandro Trossard, but Kieran Trippier is one of Newcastle’s biggest attacking threats. That’s why Arteta may just be tempted to throw in the pace of Martinelli this time around.
Arsenal Starting XI: Ramsdale, Tierney, Holding, Kiwior, White, Partey, Xhaka, Odegaard, Saka, Martinelli, Jesus
