Robin van Persie to captain Arsenal at Newcastle

Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Robin van Persie will wear the captain's armband against Newcastle tomorrow.

With captain Cesc Fabregas left out of the squad to travel to the north east later, vice-captain van Persie will lead Arsene Wenger's men into their first match of the season.

Van Persei has captained Arsenal for the majority of pre-season whilst Fabregas has been out of action.
