No fresh injury worries have cropped up for the Premier League leaders in the festive period with there little need for rotations given they will not play again for almost a week, which itself is an FA Cup trip to Oxford.
Arteta recently indicated a January return for Emile Smith Rowe after groin surgery in September but the Newcastle match will likely come too soon for him.
Therefore an unchanged line-up from the one that beat Brighton is expected.
Takehiro Tomiyasu is back from a hamstring injury but should remain on the bench with Ben White the first-choice right-back.
There is a chance that Oleksandr Zinchenko may be rotated out on the opposite flank having also only just shaken off a problem.
Eddie Nketiah will continue up front, flanked by Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli.
Predicted Arsenal XI: Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Odegaard, Partey, Xhaka; Saka, Nketiah, Martinelli.
