Newcastle v Arsenal Match Prediction - Preview

Newcastle United F.C.

Newcastle United is currently 16th in the Premier League table, a few points above the relegation zone. They most recently denied Liverpool a victory at Anfield, drawing them at 1-1. After Mohamed Salah scored early at 3′,  Joelinton tried to answer back but was denied by Alisson. Substitute Callum Wilson had a goal overturned by VAR when a handball was spotted. Joseph Willock was the saviour late in the game as he scored fresh off the bench at 90+5′. Manager Steve Bruce was delighted by the “terrific point” the Magpies gained as a result, but they would need to produce more wins to stay safe in the league for the following season.

  • Newcastle have scored and conceded in their last 8 EPL home matches, and unbeaten in the last 5 games at home.
  • They have lost 15 of their last 16 league games against Arsenal, with their only win coming in April 2018 (2-1).

Arsenal F.C.

Arsenal are holding steady in the middle of the league table, with their hopes for a European slot next season likely resting on their Europa League performance. Their last EPL game saw them incur a painful 0-1 loss against Everton. A penalty for the Gunners in the second half was taken back when Nicolas Pepe was found offside in the VAR review. AT 76′ Bernd Leno carelessly handled Richarlison’s shot, leading to an own-goal. Manager Mikel Arteta and his men are also behind Villarreal in their European fixture, with Pepe giving the Gunners’ only goal in their 1-2 loss. This match with Newcastle will be their chance to regroup while waiting for the follow-up clash at Emirates Stadium.

  • Arsenal have kept a clean sheet against Newcastle in their last five meetings.
  • They have lost to the Magpies only three times in their last 22 meetings at St. James’ Park (W11 D8).
