Star Returns – Arsenal’s Probable XI vs Newcastle United

Arsenal FCArsenal will face Newcastle United on Saturday and will hope to earn all three points away from home.

The North Londoners only have 4 points from the opening three Premier League games (only a single point from two home games) and must improve big time if they are to seriously challenge for the title this season.

The Magpies should be confident against the Gunners after a brilliant defensive display versus Man United last weekend. They sit only one place above the relegation zone with two points.

As far as Arsenal’s team news is concerned, it is highly likely that the Gunners will be without first choice central defenders Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny once again. The duo did not feature in the last PL game against Liverpool on Monday night.

Expect Chambers and Paulista to start again for the North London club. In the attacking setup, Chamberlain may return to the starting XI in place of Ramsey. The Welsh star is not really making a difference up front and the speed of Alex will add the much needed firepower in the offense.

Here is Arsenal’s probable starting XI vs Newcastle.
