Probable Arsenal 4–2-3-1 line-up vs Newcastle – Luiz & Ceballos starts, Pepe benched

Arsenal kick off their Premier league campaign today against Newcastle United at St James’ Park, how will they line-up?

Arsenal came-off the transfer window as one of the biggest spenders this summer and they look strong enough with up to six new addition.

The Gunners spent close to  £140m to bring in Dani Ceballos, David Luiz, Nicolas Pepe, Gabriel Martinelli, William Saliba and Kieran Tierney.

While Saliba has returned to loan with Saint-Etienne, Arsenal signed Luiz from Chelsea to fortify their backline.

The former Chelsea defender is expected to go straight into the first team of Arsenal along Sokratis or Mustafi.

Unai Emery has revealed he’d play Nicolas Pepe but he intends to ease him into the squad so he can adapt well.

Meanwhile, Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac has been left out of the party that traveled over “further security incidents’.

The pair were attacked in a carjacking attempt and there’s still huge concerns over their safety.

Arsenal injury

Alexandre Lacazette sustained an ankle injury but he’s back and may not start the game today.

Rob Holding is back and better but he is not fully fit for first team football.

Hector Bellerin has returned to the pitch but he’s yet to start training with the squad. He’d be back in October.

Kieran Tierney is out for two weeks, Nacho Monreal is expected to play in his position.
