Urgent Arsenal are set to shake things up as they start their final FA Cup defense in a Premier League affair against Newcastle tonight.
A number of first-team players are set to rest for the third round draw at Emirates Stadium, those who need minutes to come.
The likes of Calum Chambers and David Luiz are expected to come in defense, while Cédric Soares and Shkodran Mustafi are also candidates to return.
Bernd Leno could start ahead of Alex Runarsson in goal as the latter struggled in the Carabao Cup quarter-final loss to Manchester City last month.
In midfield, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Mohamed Elneny are ready to enter, with Joe Willock playing as No.10.
On the sidelines, Nicolas Pepe and Willian are hoping to play – but Reiss Nelson is back in shape and pushing to start. Eddie Nketiah should lead the line.
Arsenal Predict XI (4-2-3-1): Leno; Mustafi, Chambers, Luiz, Cédric; Maitland-Niles, Elneny; Pepe, Willock, Willian; Nketiah.
Saturday 17h30 GMT, BBC One
