JAMAAL LASCELLES returns to Newcastle United's starting line-up for this evening's Premier League game at Arsenal.

Lascelles replaces Federico Fernandez in the only change to the side that started the 2-2 draw at Bournemouth that preceded the international break.

The centre-half has recovered from the knee injury that forced him to miss the game at the Vitality Stadium.

He will line up alongside Florian Lejeune and Paul Dummett at centre-half, with DeAndre Yedlin and Matt Ritchie filling the wing-back berths.

Miguel Almiron and Ayoze Perez will play in the attacking-midfield positions, with Salomon Rondon continuing as a lone centre-forward.

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has left his side's leading scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the substitutes' bench, preferring to start with Alexandre Lacazette.

Arsenal (3-4-2-1): Leno; Mustafi, Sokratis, Monreal; Maitland-Niles, Guendouzi, Ramsey, Kolasinac; Iwobi, Ozil; Lacazette.

Subs: Cech (gk), Elneny, Suarez, Jenkinson, Nketiah, Mkhitaryan, Aubameyang.

Newcastle (3-4-2-1): Dubravka; Lascelles, Lejeune, Dummett; Yedlin, Hayden, Diame, Ritchie; Almiron, Perez; Rondon.

Subs: Darlow (gk), Manquillo, Fernandez, Shelvey, Ki, Kenedy, Muto.
