Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been forced into a number of changes for the Premier League clash with Newcastle United.
Lukas Podolski doesn't make it into the side despite the injuries however, with Olivier Giroud leading the line and Danny Welbeck also starting - presumably out wide in a 4-5-1/4-3-3 formation.
Mathieu Debuchy will start at centre back for the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium, but the rest of the side is as expected because of the number of injuries currently impacting Arsene Wenger's side.
Newcastle have their own problems, particularly in goal, but Papiss Cisse will lead the line and the Magpies will fancy their chances of causing an upset.
