Arsenal will look to get back to winning ways when they take on Newcastle this weekend at the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners stumbled to a disastrous 3-2 defeat against Stoke last weekend, and while they battled back to beat Galatasaray in the Champions League in mid-week they'll be looking for a much-needed win in the league.
As things stand they are down in sixth place in the league following that loss, four points from West Ham who currently occupy the fourth Champions League qualification spot.
Given that they have only won six games this season, boss Arsene Wenger is likely to be relieved that they haven't been cut adrift in the race for a top-for spot, and a win against Newcastle could throw them back in the mix.
That won't be easy however, with Arsenal's injury list growing by the day. Aaron Ramsey is the latest casualty, and the Welshman joins Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott and Mesut Ozil on the sidelines.
Calum Chambers is suspended as well. Olivier Giroud appears to fully match fit now, but may well have to make do with a spot on the bench as Danny Welbeck could return. So bad are Arsenal's injury woes that Wenger has been forced to recall Francis Coquelin from his loan spell with Charlton.
Newcastle have proven to be tricky opponents for Arsenal in the past most notoriously during their 4-4 draw back in 2011, although the Gunners have had the upper hand more recently, winning their last five showdowns in a row.
Arsenal team to face Newcastle
Szczesny, Gibbs, Bellerin, Debuchy, Mertesacker, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Flamini, Sanchez Welbeck, Podolski, Cazorla
