It's always nice to have an easy game to bounce back after suffering disappointment and it looks like Arsenal have just that against Newcastle.
The Magpies are experiencing something of an injury crisis and only have 13 senior outfield players to call upon for the visit of a team that are currently third in the Premier League.
Newcastle currently have defenders Paul Dummett, Massaido Haidara and Steven Taylor injured, along with midfielders Rolando Aarons, Mehdi Abeid, Siem de Jong and Cheick Tiote.
Added to this list of walking wounded are the team captain Fabricio Coloccini and top scorer Papiss Cisse, who are both suspended. Shouldn’t the Premier League just save everyone the bother and just hand Arsenal three points now?
