Arsenal team news to follow, mutta jotain löytyi........
Arsenal are without Reyes, Cole, Clichy and Bergkamp remains a doubt for the match.
Jose Antonio Reyes will miss the trip to Newcastle while Sol Campbell, Pascal Cygan and Dennis Bergkamp face late fitness tests.
Reyes picked up a thigh injury in the draw with Ajax in mid-week and will not be risked whilst Campbell and Cygan both have slight groin strains and face late checks.
Bergkamp's injury is a hamstring pull and if there is any doubt he will not be risked. If Bergkamp fails to make it then Robin van Persie will partner Thierry Henry in attack..
Alexander Hleb has only just returned after two months out so it is unlikely that he will be asked to play twice in the space of a few days having comeback against Ajax.
Robert Pires, Freddie Ljungberg, Jens Lehmann and Gilberto Silva who were all left out of the Champions League match, are set to return for the trip to Newcastle where Arsenal will be looking to bounce back from the defeat at Bolton last week.
Henry is aware of the need to hit back after the performance against Bolton, he said: "Bolton deserved the win. It was one of the first times this season that I think we have actually deserved to lose. Now what we have to do is try to bounce back.
"We need to try to grab something at Newcastle because that is going to be another very tough game."

ManU - Everton
Defender Nuno Valente could return to the side for the clash with Manchester United, but Nigel Martyn is a doubt with a groin injury.
The Portuguese international defender, Valente, has been out since October with a hamstring injury, but he came through a reserve match in mid-week and David Moyes is hoping he will be fit to play.
Martyn came off against Blackburn with a groin injury but a scan has shown that it was not as bad as at first feared although he remains a major doubt for the trip to Old Trafford.
Everton will not take any risks with Martyn and, if there is any doubt about the groin, his place will be taken by Richard Wright who is desperate to get a run in the side.
Moyes is hopeful that Valente will be fit to return, he said: "Hopefully Nuno will be ready. He played in the reserves with Per Kroldrup and Li Tie and they all came through.
"Like any other player who comes in it is not easy to settle, especially in a new culture and a new country's football but he was just starting to get there when his hamstring went," he told the club's website.(BBC,.eatsleepsport.com, Sky-Sport, Sporting Life, NewsNow, omat tilastot)
