Confirmed Arsenal team v Newcastle United – Mikel Arteta makes three changes
The Arsenal team v Newcastle has just been confirmed.
Mikel Arteta hoping to bounce back from a disappointing goalless draw at home to Crystal Palace on Thursday.
With a poor run of form through November and well into December, the Gunners then recovered and made it four wins in a row when beating Newcastle United nine days ago in the FA Cup.
A lot of Arsenal fans were questioning Mikel Arteta, despite having won a trophy only five months ago.
Even this recent run of four wins and a draw hasn’t really changed things, as the wins are seen as having been against poor teams such as Newcastle, Brighton and West Brom, as well as a Chelsea side that weren’t in great form.
Tonight’s match against Newcastle seen as very much a must win, as they have a tough set of upcoming Premier League matches, with Southampton, Man Utd, Wolves, Villa, Leeds, Man City and Leicester to play before the end of February.

Leno, Soares, Holding, Luiz, Tierney, Partey, Xhaka, Saka, Smith-Rowe, Aubameyang, Lacazette
