Predicted Arsenal lineup (4-2-3-1) to face Newcastle United, Torreira and Lacazette start

Predicted Arsenal lineup vs Cardiff City

Arsenal will seek to extend their two-match winning run in the Premier League when they face Newcastle United on the road on Saturday afternoon.



Formation: 4-2-3-1

Predicted Lineup:

Petr Cech has been ever-present in goal for the Gunners since the start of the season and he is likely to maintain his position for the Magpies game ahead of German Bernd Leno.

In defence, Unai Emery has stuck with the combination of Hector Bellerin, Shkodran Mustafi, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Nacho Monreal for the past three games and no changes are likely with the recent winning run achieved.

However, Emery may consider a solitary change in the centre of the park whereby Mateo Guendouzi could make way for fellow summer recruit Lucas Torreira.

The Uruguayan made a match-defining impact against Cardiff last time around as he provided the assist for Lacazette's winner and this may be sufficient to hand him a starting role alongside Granit Xhaka.

Further forward, Aaron Ramsey should take up the number 10 role with Mesut Ozil and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the right and left side of the defence, thus allowing Alexandre Lacazette to feature upfront for the second game running.
