After being out with a groin injury for four months, Emile Smith Rowe could also be involved for Arsenal.
Bukayo Saka and William Saliba will both have to be careful, as they are one booking away from triggering a ban. On the other hand, Newcastle will be without left-back Matt Targett due to a heel injury, and Alexander Isak, Jonjo Shelvey, Emil Krafth, and Paul Dummett are all on the sidelines. Goalkeeper Martin Dubravka has been recalled from his loan spell with Manchester United.
In all competitions, Arsenal have won 11 consecutive home games against Newcastle, keeping clean sheets in each of the last seven. Their last defeat in this fixture at the Emirates was a 1-0 league defeat in November 2010.
Newcastle, on the other hand, are hoping to earn consecutive league victories in this fixture for the first time since the mid-1990s, and will be looking to their 2-0 victory at home in the most recent meeting last May for inspiration.
If Arsenal manage to earn another clean sheet in this game, they could equal the Premier League record of 29 clean sheets against a particular opponent, currently held by Manchester United against Tottenham. With so much on the line and both teams in top form, this game is sure to be an exciting one for fans to watch.
