There are some question marks that remain over who will start at the back and in central midfield, further forward the other positions are relatively straight forward.
Here’s how we think Arsenal will line up:

- [Confirmed Lineups] Arsenal v Newcastle United – Wilshere & Lacazette Start In 4-2-3-1
GK) Petr Cech
Reinstated after missing the EFL Cup loss to afford Emi Martinez some game time.
Arsene Wenger has hinted the Brazilian will fill in at right back with Carl Jenkinson struggling for form and confidence, while Mathieu Debuchy’s unfortunate injury rules him out for the remainder of the head.
CB) Laurent Koscielny
Koscielny will captain the side and continue his flourishing partnership with Mustafi.
CB) Shkodran Mustafi
Still unbeaten in an Arsenal shirt, let’s hope the run continues for the German. They’ll have their work cut out with Andy Carroll fit once again.
LB) Nacho Monreal
Keiran Gibbs played in midweek, but Nacho remains first choice despite his growing habit of conceding, or often coming close to conceding, penalties. He needs to remain disciplined as his speed is starting to decline.
