Arsenal Line Up vs Newcastle – Can the Gunners start 2016 as they mean to go on?

By KickOff IN Archive,General - 19:30 Jan 1st 2016
 

Arsenal were among the strongest teams in 2015 but those results ultimately didn't lead them to Premier League victory. This season they lead the pack and look to have a great chance of lifting the trophy come May but first, they must overcome a Newcastle side fighting for their survival.

Here's the team most likely to play:

Arsenal are still missing some key players with Rosicky, Wilshere, Welbeck, Sanchez, Arteta, Cazorla & Coquelin all still on the injury list.

At the back, Arsene Wenger has been rotating the defenders a little over Christmas and we may see that continue with Per Mertesacker being given a rest this time. Koscieliny and Gabriel have started together nine times for Arsenal, winning six of those games. However the last game they started together was way back in October in Arsenal's 2-1 over Everton.

In Midfield Callum Chambers may once again be given the chance to play in the holding midfield role after impressing against Bournemouth.

The most important man in the Gunners midfield though will be record signing Mesut Ozil who has now assisted an enormous 16 goals this season. In fact he's managed to either score or assist a goal in 67% of his appearances in all competitions for the Gunners this season.

Up front it's likely that Olivier Giroud will continue to lead the line, especially when facing Newcastle. The French striker has managed to find the net eight times against Newcastle United and the Gunners have never lost any of those fixtures when he's scored.
