Mikel Arteta will be desperate for all three points on Sunday afternoon after just one win from his opening seven matches as Arsenal head coach.
A victory for Newcastle will see them leapfrog Arsenal in the table and Saint-Maximin’s performance in north London will likely be key for the visitors.
Saint-Maximin has had an impressive debut season for the Magpies after arriving from Nice last summer and Aubameyang believes Arsenal’s defenders must be wary of the French winger.
‘Newcastle are a solid side. I expect them to play quite deep so we will need to find a way of unlocking their back five,’ he said in Arsenal’s official matchday programme.
