This is the team Steve Bruce has named for the FA Cup tie at Arsenal. It has seven changes from the defeat to Leicester City.

Steve Bruce looks to have possibly transitioned to either a 4-4-2 or a 4-2-3-1. As expected from yesterday’s press conference, Martin Dubravka and Jamaal Lascelles are in the starting eleven.
However, it’s surprise starts for Andy Carroll and Emil Krafth. Joelinton, Miguel Almiron, and Sean Longstaff keep their place while Isaac Hayden returns from suspension.
Here is who Mikel Arteta has chosen for the hosts.
? Seven changes from West Brom…
?? Cedric and David Luiz start
? Elneny partners Willock
?? Nico, Willian, Gabi, Auba in attack#EmiratesFACup

If Newcastle hope to replicate their last two cup runs they’ll have to pull off an upset at the Emirates tonight. Arsenal have won three straight while Newcastle are on a streak of six without a win.
The odds are stacked against us but let’s hope they can put in a performance and shock the Gunners tonight.
Howay The Lads!
