Confirmed Newcastle team v Arsenal – 6 changes as Lazaro, Rose, Saint-Maximin and Sean Longstaff all start

2 years ago

The Newcastle team v Arsenal has just been confirmed.

Newcastle kicking off their match at the Emirates at 4.30pm.

The Magpies will go above the Gunners in the table with a victory.

Steve Bruce indicated that nobody would be returning to the starting eleven from injury.

Although he said that potentially Dwight Gayle and Yoshinori Muto could maybe make the bench.

The confirmed Newcastle team v Arsenal:

Dubravka, Lazaro, Fernandez, Lascelles, Clark, Rose, Bentaleb, Sean Longstaff, Saint-Maximin, Almiron, Joelinton

There are six changes:

In: Dubrabka, Lazaro, Fernandez, Clark, Rose, Saint-Maximin,

Out: Darlow, Yedlin, Lejeune, Schar, Ritchie, Matty Longstaff

So none of those who were on the injury list even make the subs bench, even though Steve Bruce had said Newcastle hadn’t needed to bring in a new striker in January, as Carroll, Gayle and Muto should all be back for Arsenal and beyond.

Newcastle with not a single striker on the bench.


Darlow, Lejeune, Schar, Ritchie, Matty Longstaff, Hayden, Atsu

Compare the Steve Bruce starting eleven to the fans choice of Newcastle team v Arsenal which we featured earlier.
