Four new faces on the bench for Arsenal
Summer signings Luiz, Martinelli, Pepe and Ceballos are all on the bench this afternoon for Unai Emery's side.

Willock and Nelson are both given an opportunity in the starting XI whilst last season's joint Premier League top goal scorer Aubameyang starts.

There could be four competitive debuts for Steve Bruce's summer signings
Club record signing Joelinton makes his competitive debut for Newcastle and his first ever appearance in the Premier League.

Matt Ritchie is fit enough to start for the Magpies whilst Dummett is preferred to Fernandez as part of the central three in defence.

Saint-Maximin, Krafth and Willems are all on the bench.

Ritchie asking for fans to 'stick together' ahead of new campaign
"We need to stick together, all be as one and pull in the same direction. This can be a fantastic season, but we need to all be in it together.

We'll do our utmost to give them success. But it won't be an overnight thing, it's not going to all of a sudden happen in one season.

We've still got a very young group and one I feel that if we keep building and improving year on year maybe in the future we can become what the fans want once again."

Unai Emery on his side's summer transfer window
“I am really delighted with our work in the transfer window. The club did everything to get the best players to help us and to make our squad stronger”.

Ozil and Kolasinac will not be selected due to 'security 'incidents
After the two players were subject to an attempted robbery, Arsenal have released a statement explaining why both players will not make an appearance on Sunday.

“Mesut Özil and Sead Kolasinac will not be part of the squad for our opening match against Newcastle United following further security incidents, which are being investigated by the police.

The welfare of our players and their families is always a top priority and we have taken this decision following discussion with the players and their representatives.

We are liaising with police and are providing the players and their families with support. We look forward to welcoming the players back to the squad as soon as possible.”

Team news: Arsenal
Arsenal could also be without five players for their trip to the North East, whilst many of those who will be potentially unavailable are defenders. 

Bellerin (knee), Holding (knee), Mavropanos (groin) and new signing Tierney (groin) are all doubts for the North London side.

Smith Rowe could also miss out due to a groin issue.

Team News: Newcastle
Steve Bruce has five players who may miss the game on Sunday.

Yedlin will be unavailable after requiring surgery which has meant he was unable to take part in any pre-season games.

Gayle (calf), Lejeune (knee) and Colback (groin) are all set to miss the clash at St. James Park.

Whist Matt Ritchie, who would otherwise be a starter, could be out due to a thigh problem but he has the best chance of starting out of those mentioned.

Head to Head
The last time these sides played was in April, with Unai Emery's side winning 2-1, through goals from Aaron Ramsey and Alexandre Lacazette.

The Magpies have won just once in the last 15 meetings between these sides. That victory was recently though, as they beat Arsenal 2-1 in 2018.
