Arsenal Team News: Injuries, suspensions and line-up vs Newcastle – football news

Arsenal’s last trip to St James’ Park ended in a 2-1 defeat towards the back end of last season, with head coach Unai Emery hoping for a more positive result when his side face Rafa Benitez’s men on Saturday.

The Gunners have conceded eight goals in their opening four Premier League games so far, but recorded a narrow win in their last game against Cardiff before the international break.

However, Newcastle have only beaten Arsenal twice in 23 meetings in all competitions (D5, L16) and will come up against an Emery team who are looking to win consecutive Premier League away matches for the first time since May 2017.


Arsenal injuries


Alex Iwobi is back after illness, while left-back Sead Kolasinac and Ainsley Maitland-Niles are on the road to recovery following their long-term injuries.

Long-term absentee Laurent Koscielny is back in light training, while Carl Jenkinson remains out with an ankle injury.


Arsenal suspensions


Arsenal have no suspensions for this game.


Possible Arsenal starting line-up


Emery could decide to bring Henrikh Mkhitaryan back into the starting XI ahead of youngster Matteo Guendouzi.

Alexandre Lacazette is expected to start following his goal and assist against Cardiff, while Mesut Ozil looks likely to play behind the Frenchman.

Aubameyang, Elneny return ahead of Arsenal clash with Newcastle United – football news

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mohamed Elneny have rejoined Arsenal ahead of their Premier League game against Newcastle United on Saturday.

The former Borussia Dortmund player was on target to earn a point for Gabon against Burundi during the African Cup of Nations qualifying outing.

The 29-year-old was, however, not part of the team that faced Zambia in Tuesday’s friendly game after teaming up with his club.

Also, Elneny played a key role as Egypt thumped Niger 6-0 at the weekend, scoring one of the goals in the encounter.

The Gunners confirmed the arrival of both players alongside Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Aaron Ramsey and Lucas Torreira who were on international duty.

“A number of our international stars returned to north London,” read a statement on club website.

Article continues below

“Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mohamed Elneny, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Aaron Ramsey and Lucas Torreira were all present after playing for their countries last week.”

Arsenal are ninth in the league log with six points from four games and will be aiming to nick the maximum points against the Magpies.

Fantasy Football: What to do with your struggling players – football news

We often talk about superstars and “must owns” in Fantasy. Obviously, you have to spend big money to get the best Fantasy players into your team. The downside of that is having to figure out what to do when big name or big price players aren’t delivering the goods for your team. To that end, today we will be discussing a player at each position that has underperformed thus far, and if they will break out of their slump soon, or continue to struggle.

Goal-Fantasy-Football-StartPlayingNow

FOR: Gabriel Jesus – Manchester City, £7.9m, 11 points

There were always going to be questions about Jesus’ playing time with Sergio Aguero clearly the starter, but he’s carved out a decent role for himself. Despite playing over an hour just once this season thus far, he still has managed to put eight shots on target – the second most in the league.

With that kind of shooting rate and the fact that Pep has seemingly gotten more comfortable playing with two up front, Jesus will surely find the net again sooner rather than later. The schedule looks kind over the coming weeks so buying in on Jesus now, while his stock is low, looks a prudent investment.

MID: Mesut Ozil – Arsenal, £7.2m, 6 points

In 2015-16, Ozil led the Premier League in both chances created (144) and assists (19). Since then, he’s declined in both of those categories year-on-year with last season’s totals (74 chances created, 8 assists) roughly half of his output from 15-16.

Mesut Ozil Arsenal Atletico Madrid Europa League

That trend has continued this season as in three starts he’s managed just three chances created and no assists, ranking him 117th and 70th respectively. An argument could be made that he’ll return to the mean and at least be a usable Fantasy option but, for now, he’s decidedly not.

DEF: Ben Davies – Tottenham, £6.3m, 3 points

Davies was one of the most popular defenders heading into the season, but his performances have already scared many owners away. Just three points through four matches is certainly not what people expected when they paid Davies’ premium price.

Ben Davies, Tottenham

Part of the issue is that, despite his seven assists last season, he really wasn’t as creative as people may have thought with just 4% of his crosses resulting in goals. With tactical switches and Danny Rose being reintegrated into the squad, Davies costs more than he’s worth.

GK: David De Gea – Manchester United, £6.5m, 9 points

Article continues below

At time of writing, De Gea is still the most owned goalkeeper in the Goal game, so plenty of people still have faith. He won the Golden Glove last season with 18 clean sheets, his highest total since joining Manchester United. As for this season, the defence in front of him is not great and, through four matches, the Spaniard has allowed seven goals already – 25 per cent of his 2017-18 total.

He has not looked great thus far but considering his talent level and upcoming opponents he may put up some solid Fantasy points. Whether or not you want to spend 6.5m on him is up to you.
