Arsenal's predicted starting lineup against Newcastle

The Gunners will host Newcastle United in their first post-winter break clash at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon. 

Mikel Arteta's side will be hoping to arrest a four-match winning streak that has seen them move further into the bottom half of the English Premier League standings, with their last win coming on New Year's Day against rivals Manchester United

The Spaniard has been boosted by the return of key defender in Sead Kolasinac, as well as Bukayo Saka. 

Kolasinac has missed a number of matches with a niggling thigh strain, while Saka was withdrawn at halftime during their last clash against Burnley with some muscle discomfort. 

New signing Pablo Mari is expected to get his debut, even though he might have to start on the bench. 

Reiss Nelson is also fully fit and available for selection following a right hamstring strain.

New signing Cedric Soares, remains on the sidelines as he recovers from an injury he picked while at Southampton, joining long-term absentee Callum Chambers on the hospital bed. 

Kieran Tierney is on the road to full recovery and might be back in the fold soon. 

With an almost entire squad fully-fit, how do we expect Arsenal to the lineup against Newcastle?

Bernd Leno starts in goal, with Hector Bellerin at right-back. In central defense, David Luiz partners Shkodran Mustafi, and we expect the returning Sead Kolasinac to fit in at left-back.

Granit Xhaka and Lucas Torreira will partner in midfield, with Ozil playing in front of them. 

On the flanks, Pepe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should be drafted in, with Lacazzette leading the lines. 

Predicted Arsenal XI: Leno; Bellerin, Mustafi, Luiz, Kolasinac; Torreira, Xhaka; Aubameyang, Ozil, Pepe; Lacazette
