Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is expected to pick his strongest available starting line-up for Tuesday’s meeting with Newcastle.

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.

Gabriel Jesus once again misses out with a knee injury while Reiss Nelson is set to be unavailable due to his hamstring issue.

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.
