Well. Here we go.

Here are your lineups for today:

Newcastle: Harper; Debuchy, S.Taylor, Coloccini (c), Yanga-Mbiwa; Tiote, Cabaye, Gutierrez; Ben Arfa, Cisse, Gouffran.

Subs: Alnwick, Simpson, Anita, Perch, Marveaux, Obertan, Campbell.

Arsenal: Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs, Arteta, Ramsey, Rosicky, Cazorla, Walcott, Podolski.

Subs: Fabianski, Vermaelen, Monreal, Wilshere, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Gervinho, Giroud.

So. Mikel Arteta starts against doubts; Wilshere starts on the bench. Olivier Giroud also starts on the bench, with Lukas Podolski retaining his place at the point of attack.

All the games are starting at the same time today, so it's going to be a pretty wild two hours.

Everybody hold on to your butts.
