Manager Alan Pardew has made two changes to starting line-up as Newcastle United travel to the Emirates Stadium this evening to take on Arsenal (5.30pm kick-off).
The Magpies are expected to line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation, with James Perch dropping back into defence to join Danny Simpson, captain Fabricio Coloccini and Davide Santon, in front of goalkeeper Tim Krul.
On the substitutes' bench there is a surprise inclusion for just-turned 18-year-old centre-back Remie Streete, who has never been involved at first-team level before.
The Academy product is part of a youthful bench including the likes of James Tavernier, Shane Ferguson, Mehdi Abeid and Sammy Ameobi, with only Steve Harper and Shola Ameobi offering any real experience.
Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Wojciech Szczesny; Bacary Sagna, Thomas Vermaelen (c), Laurent Koscielny, Kieran Gibbs; Mikel Arteta, Jack Wilshere; Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Santi Cazorla, Lukas Podolski; Theo Walcott
Substitutes: Vito Mannone, Johan Djourou, Francis Coquelin, Aaron Ramsey, Tomas Rosicky, Gervinho, Olivier Giroud
Referee: Chris Foy (Lancashire)
