Arsenal team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Newcastle United

Sports Mole rounds up Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash with Newcastle United.

Arsenal will switch their attention back to the Premier League on Sunday afternoon as they prepare to travel to Newcastle United.

The Gunners will enter this weekend's match off the back of a 2-1 defeat to Villarreal in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final, leaving the tie delicately poised ahead of the return fixture in North London.

Mikel Arteta's side suffered a 1-0 loss to Everton in their last league match, meanwhile, which has left them down in 10th position in the table, seven points behind seventh-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Arsenal's injury and suspension news ahead of the clash with Steve Bruce's team.

Alexandre Lacazette

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: May 2 (vs. Newcastle)

Alexandre Lacazette was close to featuring against Villarreal on Thursday night but ultimately missed out due to a troublesome hamstring problem. The Frenchman is in line to take to the field against Newcastle, although he could possibly be saved for the second leg of the Europa League semi-final.

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: May 2 (vs. Newcastle)

Like Lacazette, Kieran Tierney came close to making the squad against Villarreal but was not cleared to return from a knee problem against the Yellow Submarine; it would not be a surprise to see him feature against the Magpies, although Arteta is expected to again leave it late to make his final call.


Arsenal have no players suspended for the Premier League clash.
