Arsenal provide updates on Mari, Kolasinac & more ahead of Newcastle

Arsenal have this afternoon provided updates on the fitness of a number of the club’s stars, ahead of their upcoming meeting with Newcastle United.

Arsenal vs Newcastle

The Gunners are set to return to Premier League action following the international break this coming Sunday, with a clash versus Steve Bruce’s Magpies at the Emirates.

Arsenal will enter the matchup on the back of an impressive 7-match win streak across all competitions.

The issue for the north Londoners, however, has been their inability to turn their recent results into 3 points.

Arsenal have actually drawn all of their last 4 Premier League fixtures, the latest of which saw Mikel Arteta’s men lucky to escape Turf Moor with a point.

This run of form has seen the capital giants fail to make up any ground on the top-4 chasing pack, with Arsenal sat in a disappointing 10th in the English top-flight as things stand.

Kolasinac to return/Too soon for Mari

The Gunners, though, have today been dealt a boost on the personnel front.

In an post on the club’s official website this afternoon, Arsenal provided a fitness update on Mikel Arteta’s squad.

In positive news, all of Sead Kolasinac, Reiss Nelson and Bukayo Saka have been passed fit to feature versus Newcastle, on the back of respective injury concerns.

The clash will come too soon, however, for January signings Pablo Mari and Cedric Soares.
