Arsenal take on Newcastle United at the Emirates later today and here’s how we think the Gunners will line up.
It’s a big match for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal who will be looking to get back to winning ways in the Premier League after three consecutive games without three points.
Here’s how we think the Gunners will line up:
GK) Petr Cech

RB) Hector Bellerin
We think Arsene Wenger will start with a back four meaning Hector Bellerin will play at right-back.
RCB) Laurent Koscielny
LCB) Shkodran Mustafi
Shkodran Mustafi will be fit for the Gunners and we think he will displace Nacho Monreal and start in a back four.
LB) Sead Kolasinac
He should play after being rested in midweek.
RCM) Francis Coquelin
We think Wenger will give Francis Coquelin a start in midfield.
LCM) Granit Xhaka
RAM) Jack Wilshere
Jack Wilshere could be deployed in a more offensive role.
CAM) Mesut Ozil
LAM) Alexis Sanchez
Sanchez will start.
ST) Alexandre Lacazette
After starting on the bench in midweek, Alexandre Lacazette will surely be given a place up front later today.
