The Newcastle v Arsenal team was guaranteed at least one change, with Fabricio Coloccini losing his appeal against the three match ban picked up at Everton.

Much talk of John Carver having only 13 fit and available senior outfield players.

He has gone with this Newcastle United line up:

Krul, Ryan Taylor, Janmaat, Williamson, Colback, Anita, Sissoko, Gouffran, Ameobi, Cabella, Perez

Whilst on the bench:

Elliot, Satka, Kemen, Jonas, Riviere, Obertan, Armstrong
