The latest Newcastle team news ahead of Arsenal

Newcastle vs Arsenal

Newcastle and Arsenal are set to go head-to-head at St. James’ Park on Sunday afternoon.

The Magpies will enter the clash sitting 16th in the Premier League, nine points clear of the bottom three thanks to a solid run of recent form.

In their last four outings, the Geordie outfit have picked up wins over Burnley and West Ham, as well as earning draws with Liverpool and Tottenham.

As a result, Steve Bruce’s side only really need a point or two from their remaining games to guarantee survival.

It is of course Joe Willock who has helped to earn the North East outfit a good chunk of their recent points, with the midfielder’s latest telling contribution having seen him come off the bench to net a 95th-minute equaliser vs Liverpool.

But, as Willock is on loan from Arsenal, he will be unavailable on Sunday.

Newcastle team news

Ahead of the clash at St. James’ Park, Steve Bruce spoke to the press on Friday.

When doing so, the Newcastle boss provided an update on his squad.

And it was largely positive news, with Bruce having confirmed that, Matt Ritchie aside, his players came through the Liverpool game unscathed:

“We’ve got a slight doubt about Matt Ritchie. He’s got a bit of a calf injury but we think he’s going to be OK [for Sunday]. Apart from that – everybody else has come through Liverpool alright.”
