Huge Team Selection Headache For Arteta As Two Stars Miss Training In Big Blow To Arsenal Fans

Arsenal are preparing to face Newcastle United in their Premier League encounter in this evening. The red side of London are in a difficult situation after some players are down with injuries.

As per Sunsport, the likes of Ben White and Gabriel Magalhaes didn't train with rest of players yesterday. Which comes as the result of the Frenchman. Gabriel Magalhaes was substituted in last defeat to the Tottenham Hotspur side. Due to what looked like a 'muscular' or 'hamstring' problem.

Meanwhile Ben White was not used as a substitute despite the Gunners getting Rob Holding sent off due to bad tackle to there rivals Tottenham Hotspur attacking star Son. He was previously absent on Arsenal's fixture and Arteta didn't want to risk him as they lost to Spurs in 3-0 scoreline.

With Rob Holding suspended on this fixture, there are few or no other options for Arteta if Ben White and Gabriel Magalhaes as well won't make it to feature in this coming match. There is the believe especially from the same publication.

The possibility of Xhaka may be playing in the left-back position while Tomiyasu coming in the central defence. Only if Ben White could be available to try and partner with Japan international. A pair of Kieran and Partey are out with knee and thigh problems as well.
