Newcastle United are playing brilliantly, but Arsenal, the favourite as we look at the best predicted Starting 11 for Arsenal vs Newcastle match for EPL 2023.
Table toppers Arsenal have already won 14 games so far and no team with 43 points at this point of the season have not won the Premier League. This coupled with the fact that Manchester City dropped points against Everton has given Arsenal a 7-point lead at the top of the table.
Meanwhile, Newcastle United travel to London on an unbeaten streak of 12 games and haven’t lost a game since losing to Liverpool in September. Kieron Trippier and Fabian Schar are continuing their form; both defensively and in terms of contributing to goals for the team.
Arsenal will be playing at home and are also on an unbeaten run of 10 games since their loss to Manchester United in September. While the team will miss Jesus in the attack, Nketiah scored in the previous game showing he is willing to step up into the role of being the striker for the team.
These two teams have played each other many times in the premier league. However, Arsenal have won most of the games, losing just 4 times at home to Newcastle United. While the last game they played ended in a 2-0 win for Newcastle United, Arsenal given their form will be the favourites to win this game.

Predicting Starting 11 for both Teams
EPL 2023: Arsenal vs Newcastle United Predicted Starting 11 for Arsenal
Mikel Arteta might have to use his subs in this game given the multiple fixtures within the week. However, he would not change the starting XI too much and use the same lineup as the previous game. While he misses a striker with the Gabriel Jesus injury, Arteta will be looking to start Nketiah in the attack.
Their midfield looks in sync and Martinelli + Odegaard + Saka are able to create a lot of chances in the opposition box. The only change which we expect from last game’s line-up against Brighton is fully fit Zinchenko in place of Tierney.
Goalkeeper: Aaron Ramsdale
Defence: Oleksandra Zinchenko, Gabriel Magalhaes, William Saliba, Ben White
Midfield: Granit Xhaka, Thomas Partey, Gabriel Martinelli, Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka
Attack: Eddie Nketiah

Newcastle have won their last 4 of their last 5 games with a lot of goals being scored. They will be looking to upset Arsenal in this away game for the Magpies. Manager Eddie Howe would be looking forward to playing a similar team as the last game against Arsenal in this midweek game.
Their midfield and attack have been playing very well in controlling the game and will be interesting to see if they can beat Arsenal again in this game at London.
Goalkeeper: Nick Pope
Defence: Kieran Trippier, Fabian Schar, Sven Botman, Dan Burn
Midfield: Joe Willock, Bruno Guimaraes, Joelinton
Attack: Miguel Almiron, Callum Wilson, Allan Saint-Maximin
