ARS Vs NEW Fantasy Team Picks, Probable Playing 11, Injuries, Match Centre: Arsenal’s renaissance sees them win three on the spin for the first time.
Not until a couple of weeks back, Arsenal found themselves staring at the barrel. Languishing in 15th spot without a win in the league since two months, the team found itself perilously above the relegation zone.
The side’s horrid form had spurred talk of Arteta being on the anvil of leaving the club. However, the last two weeks have completely seen him turnaround his destiny at the club with the side accruing three wins in succession in that period.
With momentum in their ranks with those results, the side opens its FA Cup defence come today when it squares off against Newcastle United.

Fantasy Team Picks
We begin our set of picks with the selection of Martin Dubravka from Newcastle United, a player who will be eager to show everyone why he was spoken is the same breath as the top names last season.
Partnering up with him for the affair is Federico Fernandez owing to his ability to pull off a string of tackles and blocks.
With Newcastle United having scored just four goals in their last five fixtures and Arsenal having kept two cleansheets on the bounce, everything alludes towards a cleansheet for the home side. We’ll be earmarking the quartet of David Luiz, Gabriel Magalhaes, Ainsely Maitland-Niles and Cedric Saores from the side.
His searing speed and ability to work the flanks sees Allan Saint-Maxim line up for us from the visiting team. Isaac Hayden’s ability to break up ability plays sees him form the duo from the side while Arsenal will be represented by Joe Willock.
Finding his feet after injury like a fish takes to water, Gabriel Martinelli has taken no time to stamp his authority of the pitch. Eddie Nketiah who has the three goals in the Europa League is his partner.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Gabriel’s titillating skill set sees him be our captain while Eddie is the vice-captain.
Martin, Ainsely, Soares, David, Federico, Gabriel, Ainsely, Hayden, Willock, Eddie, Gabriel
