Newcastle v Arsenal

Saturday, 13 August

Newcastle v Arsenal (1730 BST)

St James' Park

Kick-off: 17.30 BST

Last season: Arsenal 0 Newcastle 1, Newcastle 4 Arsenal 4.

Both sides begin the new season on the back of restless summers. Arsenal are expected to lose both Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri before Monday morning, while Newcastle, after selling Andy Carroll in January, have sold Jose Enrique and Joey Barton remains unsettled.

Arsene Wenger will receive almost £60m from the combined sales of Fabregas and Nasri and the pivotal issue remains whether he can bring in their replacements in time.

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has brought in Yohan Cabaye, Sylvain Marveaux, Demba Ba, Mehdi Abeid and Gabriel Obertan and the club remains in a sort of stasis, netiher good enough to push for Europe nor ragged enough to go down.

Pardew's only absentee is winger Hatem Ben Arfa who is six weeks short of returning from an ankle injury.

For Wenger, Robin van Persie (knee) and Kieran Gibbs (thight) are doubtful, while Jack Wilshire (ankle) and Abou Diaby (ankle) are both out.
