How Arsenal could line up against Newcastle United

Arsenal manager Unai Emery believes Saturday's trip to Newcastle United will be a "difficult" test ahead of his first visit to St James's Park.

"For me, it is a new moment, for us and for every player", Emery said at a news conference, as quoted by FourFourTwo.
