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

Sports Mole rounds up all of Arsenal's injury and suspension news ahead of their Premier League clash with Newcastle United on Saturday.

Arsenal will aim to make an immediate return to winning ways when they welcome winless Newcastle United to the Emirates on Saturday lunchtime in the Premier League.

The Gunners were humbled in a 4-0 Anfield defeat to Liverpool last time out, as Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota and Takumi Minamino all helped themselves to goals.

Mikel Arteta's side missed the opportunity to rise into the top four with that loss but remain fifth in the table heading into gameweek 13.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.
