Your Predictions: Arsenal v Newcastle
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed he has no fresh injury worries ahead of Saturday’s home clash with Newcastle.
Olivier Giroud and Tomas Rosicky both return to the squad after missing out in the previous match at Wigan due to illness, though Giroud is likely to struggle in his battle to oust Theo Walcott as the lone forward against the Magpies.
Wenger’s side have conceded goals in five of their last seven league games at the Emirates, and remain somewhat unconvincing defensively despite recording three wins on the trot domestically.
Stat: The Gunners’ have opened the scoring at home before the 26th minute on four occasions this season, while Newcastle have conceded before the 35th minute in five of their away matches to date.
Likely Arsenal line-up: Szczesny; Sagna, Vermaelen, Mertesacker, Gibbs; Arteta, Cazorla, Wilshere, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Podolski, Walcott.
