Premier League Highlights: Arsenal defeat Newcastle by 3-0: Arsenal welcome Newcastle to the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League this evening in a repeat of their FA Cup third-round tie of little over a week ago.
The Gunners eventually emerged as 2-0 winners after extra-time on that occasion, following a fairly drab, goalless 90 minutes.
Mikel Arteta’s side will be looking to return to winning ways after their recent resurgence was stalled by last week’s home draw against Crystal Palace.
The Spaniard was without in-form left-back Kieran Tierney for that game, but the Scot is expected to return tonight, while Thomas Partey and Gabriel Martinelli are also in contention.
Newcastle, meanwhile, are in dire form, having gone eight games without a win in all competitions – their latest defeat coming against bottom side Sheffield United, who had not previously won a league game all season.
Arsenal lineup (4-2-3-1): Leno; Cedric, Holding, Luiz, Tierney; Partey, Xhaka; Saka, Smith Rowe, Aubameyang; Lacazette
