Team news and stats ahead of Arsenal vs Newcastle in the Premier League on Monday; kick-off 8pm.
Arsenal will be without defender Pablo Mari for Monday night’s Premier League visit of Newcastle, live on Sky Sports. The Spaniard will miss out with a calf injury which ruled him out of the goalless draw with Crystal Palace.
It remains to be seen if Kieran Tierney (muscular) and Gabriel Martinelli (ankle) will be fit to return to the side but Gabriel Magalhaes and Thomas Partey will be pushing for recalls.
Newcastle midfielder Ryan Fraser will sit out the trip to the Emirates Stadium through suspension. Fraser was sent off for two bookable offences during Tuesday night’s 1-0 defeat at Sheffield United and must serve a one-match ban.
Jamal Lewis could return from a knee problem and Jonjo Shelvey continues his fight for full match fitness after groin surgery.
Jamaal Lascelles will be assessed as he continues his recovery from Covid-19 with fellow central defender Federico Fernandez still struggling with the after-effects of a virus which has sidelined Allan Saint-Maximin for seven weeks.

Jones Knows’ prediction
We are in a strange position with Newcastle where some fans must be wanting this current winless streak to continue in order to trigger a change of management. As long as Newcastle stay up, then is there really much wrong with that in terms of long-term prospects for the club? It’s a debate for another day when we are all back in the pubs.
The tide is certainly starting to turn on Steve Bruce, which means one thing. Newcastle will start picking up results.
The wily old fox of a boss is a master at pulling a result out of somewhere to turn the tide back in his favour. Since taking the job he has never gone longer than a run of six games without a win – this game will be the seventh in that winless streak. At 7/1 for an away win, I’m happy to put faith in the Toon.
