Unai Emery is beginning to get things right at the Emirates Stadium after a difficult start to the season.

The former Paris St-German’s manager was defeated by Chelsea and Manchester City in his first two matches as Arsenal boss, but he has managed to get back on track after two back-to-back victories again West Ham and Cardiff City respectively.

He face a huge test on Saturday as his men battle Newcastle on a ground that wasn’t friendly with the team throughout Arsene Wenger’s reign as the manager.

Emery would be expecting to see his team score many goals during the encounter which would eventually win them the maximum points.

Though the manager’s attacking partnership remains unknown, here are the two partnership likely to be deployed by the gaffer from the start.

Auba – Henrikh Partnership

The two former Borussia Dortmund players understand each other on and off the pitch and that seems to be a plus for the manager.

However, their productivity so far this season has left so much to be desired as they have only scored two goals between them.

This partnership have just 4/10 chances of starting against Newcastle.

Auba – Lacazette

Despite starting just one match this season, this partnership has produced four goals ( Lacazette 3; Aubameyang 1).

The looked lively throughout against Cardiff City two weeks ago and that improved their chances of starting together against the Magpies Tomorrow.

They have 8/10 chances of featuring from the blast of the whistle.
