They showed title winning mentality on the Boxing Day after grabbing an emphatic win, coming from behind. Newcastle are coming into this match on the back of 5-1 victory, so, expect a tough encounter on Sunday.

Defence: Laurent Koscielny faces a late fitness test, but Arsene Wenger probably won’t risk him for this tie. That means, skipper Thomas Vermaelen will get the chance to retain his place.

Midfield: Aaron Ramsey got injured in the last match and is expected to miss the festive period. Jack Wilshere, who returns from suspension, is likely to take his place.

Forward: Lukas Podolski could start on the left flank while Theo Walcott will be looking to add few goals from the right wing. Ozil will operate behind the striker, while Olivier Giroud will start as lone striker.

Prediction: 2-2; Newcastle haven’t lost at home in their last 6 matches and expect them to gain something from this match.
