For the game today at the Emirates, Jonjo Shelvey is suspended and Aleksandar Mitrovic has a slight back strain and both will not travel to London.
This is Newcastle’s third game in eight days and we lost the last two games 3-2 to Leicester City and then 1-0 to Everton – both at St. James’ Park.
We have lost the last nine games against Arsenal and it will be difficult to break that streak given the form of the team lately with just one point from the last eight games – which has been a disaster.
Rafa Benitez – Newcastle manager
Here’s the team we think Rafa could start today in London:
Yedlin Lascelles (c) Lejeune Manquillo
Ritchie Gayle Murphy
