With Arsenal’s injury crisis worse than ever, Arsene Wenger will be hard pressed to field a solid back line against Newcastle on Saturday.

Here is how we think Arsenal will line up against Newcastle:
GK) Wojciech Szczesny
Despite a number of decent performances from Damien Martinez, the Polish shot-stopper is likely to reclaim his starting spot after recovering from injury.
RB) Hector Bellerin
Although the young Spaniard didn’t enjoy the best 45 minutes against Stoke City last weekend, he may get another chance on Saturday. Mathieu Debuchy is the other option, but the Frenchman may be required at centre-back with the absence of Laurent Koscielny and Calum Chambers.
CB) Per Mertesacker
Yet again the giant German is Arsenal’s only fit centre-back, and will surely lead the team out once again.
CB) Mathieu Debuchy
Unless Arsene Wenger decides to trust 17-year-old Stefan O’Connor, then Debuchy may be required to move from right-back into the centre of defence.
LB) Kieran Gibbs
Nacho Monreal has been ruled out, meaning Gibbs is the only real choice at left-back. If the Englishman still hasn’t sufficiently recovered from his own injury however, then we could see Francis Coquelin step in; the Frenchman recently recalled from a loan spell with Charlton.
