Newcastle United v Arsenal - confirmed team lineup

With five whole days to rest since the match against Everton, its a pretty strong lineup today against Newcastle.

Song and Denilson are both injured so Diaby comes into the midfield. Walcott has recovered from a knock in midweek and will play but Nasri is still out so Arshavin, who seems to be coming back to form, will play on the left.

Lucasz Fabianski is due to have an operation so Szczesny will continue in goal. Chesney looks like he's first choice now in any case. Almunia is fit again and will be on the bench.

Vermaelen is still two to three weeks from being ready and will probably need easing in when he gets back, so the excellent Djourou and Koscielny continue at the back.

The rest of the team is as you would expect:


Sagna  Djourou  Koscielny  Clichy

            Diaby    Wilshere

  Walcott     Fabregas     Arshavin

                van Persie

Subs: Almunia, Squillaci, Eboue, Gibbs, Rosicky, Chamakh, Bendtner
