Arsenal can move up to third place in the Premier League table with a win over Newcastle United at the Emirates tonight.

Unai Emery is without Laurent Koscielny as the defender is carrying a bruised foot so Shkodran Mustafi starts alongside Sokratis and Nacho Monreal in defence.

Granit Xhaka is ruled out with a groin problem so Matteo Guendouzi joins Aaron Ramsey in midfield with Lucas Torreira suspended. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is only fit for a place on the bench due to a temperature.

These are the teams:

Arsenal

Leno, Maitland-Niles, Sokratis, Mustafi, Monreal, Kolasinac, Guendouzi, Ramsey, Iwobi, Ozil, Lacazette

Subs: Cech, Elneny, Mkhitaryan, Aubameyang, Suarez, Jenkinson, Nketiah

Newcastle

Dubravka, Yedlin, Lejeune, Lascelles, Dummett, Ritchie, Hayden, Diame, Perez, Almiron, Rondon

Subs: Darlow, Ki, Shelvey, Muto, Kenedy, Fernandez, Manquillo
