Picking the Best Potential Arsenal Lineup to Face Newcastle United on Sunday

​Having booked their place in the Europa League semi finals in midweek, Arsenal now turn their attention to their Premier League encounter on Sunday away at Newcastle United.

Prior to their 2-2 draw against CSKA Moscow on Thursday, the Gunners had won their last six games in all competitions, and will be desperate to keep the feel-good factor around the club going, with the daunting task of facing Atletico Madrid just around the corner.

Here’s who Arsene Wenger could pick for the game at St James’ Park. 


  • Cech


​Petr Cech will retain his place in goal. 


  • Bellerin


  • Chambers


  • Mustafi


  • Kolašinac


​With an important Europa League semi final to consider, Arsene Wenger will look to make changes.

As a result, Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal might be rested for this game, being replaced by Calum Chambers and Sead Kolasinac in defence, while Hector Bellerin and Shkodran Mustafi could retain their places.


  • Ramsey


  • Elneny


  • Özil


​Because Jack Wilshere was forced to leave the game against CSKA Moscow with a knock, Wenger will not want to risk his fitness.

Instead, the only change from the midfield three could see Mesut Ozil drop slightly deeper to fill the void, while Aaron Ramsey and Mohamed Elneny look set to continue alongside the German. 


  • Iwobi


  • Aubameyang


  • Welbeck


​As Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is cup-tied for the Europa League, the Gabon international will more than likely start in place of Alexandre Lacazette, looking to add to his six league goals. 

With Ozil dropping back, Alex Iwobi could start in one of the wide positions, while Danny Welbeck will be hoping to continue his form in front of goal, scoring three goals in his last two games.
