Mikel Arteta gives injury update on Elneny, Gabriel, Eddie Nketiah, Partey, Ben White ahead Norwich clash

Arsenal host Newcastle at Emirates in today’s premier league fixture at 1pm as we look at how Mikel Arteta will lineup Arsenal against Newcastle today.

Here is how Game Geng thinks Arsenal will lineup against Newcastle in today’s premier league fixture.

Goalkeeper

Aaron Ramsdale (GK) – The only player who could really leave Anfield feeling as if he did his job was the guy who conceded four goals. Even so, he’s the first to admit he wasn’t at his best.

Defenders

Takehiro Tomiyasu (RB) – One of many players who had contrasting halves against Liverpool, there is no way on planet earth one of the other right-backs takes over this place. Might see Cedric against Everton, though.

Benjamin White (CB) – Defended stoutly for 45 minutes in Liverpool then fell apart like the rest. Has one Allan Saint-Maximin to deal with on Saturday.

Gabriel (CB) – Pretty much exactly the same as his centre-back partner, Gabriel has a very different task ahead of him with Callum Wilson who offers a physical threat.

Nuno Tavares (LB) – What will the manager do? Given the tough away fixtures coming up, he might just hand Nuno a chance to respond to his second half last week and then hand he reins back over to Tierney after that.

Midfielders

Thomas Partey (CM) – Unable to impact the last game as he would have liked, the point remains that he’s by far the best in his position at the club and will keep his place.

There is certain scope for Arteta to keep him back from this one and manage his workload ahead of Old Trafford, so it wouldn’t be a surprise if he came off around the 60-minute mark.

Albert Sambi Lokonga (CM) – If Maitland-Niles plays instead then it should only be with an eye on fielding Sambi against Manchester United to keep rotation within the squad. Take those eight second half minutes out of the equation and Sambi had a solid game at Anfield.

His internal hunger will see him want to react straight away and the money is on him being allowed to do so.

Martin Odegaard (AM) – The most interesting call of all will be whether Arteta feels the Lacazette ploy has ran its course.

Forwards

Bukayo Saka (RW) – Return of the 4-2-3-1!

Even if the 4-4-2/4-4-1-1/4-2-2-2/whatever has shades of 4-2-3-1 in it, the reintroduction of Odegaard as the No. 10 feels like the step Arteta will take to get all three of his best creators in those zones around the penalty box.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (ST) – Feeding off scraps last time out, for all his hard work off the ball and leadership by example, a few goals wouldn’t go amiss. Especially against a defence that has conceded more than anyone else in the division.

Emile Smith Rowe (LW) – One of Smith Rowe or Saka could be given the afternoon off – or at least out of the starting lineup – to account for the upcoming two away fixtures, but Arteta will want momentum in his team starting with Saturday.
