Newcastle United vs Arsenal Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Newcastle United’s horrendous start to the campaign continued with a 2-1 defeat against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. Rafa Benitez did not alter his ultra-defensive setup against the defending champions, who scored after just eight minutes through Raheem Sterling. Even though Newcastle came up with an unlikely equaliser through Yedlin, the joy was not to last for long with Kyle Walker restoring the lead in the second half. Arsenal were involved in a 3-2 thriller with Cardiff City at the Welsh club’s home turf. Goals from Shkodran Mustafi and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang may have been cancelled out by Víctor Camarasa and Danny Ward, but Unai Emery’s team secured three points courtesy of a late goal from Alexandre Lacazette.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Benitez has seen his team score against Manchester City and Chelsea at the start of the campaign, but they have been fortunate on a couple of occasions. Arsenal, meanwhile, struggle for clean sheets with the team managing none in the first four games. Even though Newcastle should go in with the same defensive setup like in recent big matches, the hosts may be capable of capitalising on Arsenal’s mediocre defensive run. My choice would be to back both teams to score.

All the games involving Newcastle – apart from the trip to Cardiff – have been tight games. Even though Arsenal have been able to get an average of two goals per game, they are at the mercy of Newcastle’s tactics. An attractive choice would be to go with over 2.5 goals

Both teams to score – 8/13

Total goals over 2.5 – 7/10

Arsenal saw over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Arsenal have not conceded a goal in 60% of their last 10 games played against Newcastle United

Newcastle United Preview

After a tough start to life at North London, Unai Emery is starting to settle at the gunners, who have now picked up back-to-back wins. Arsenal would rightly be considered as favourites to win against teams like West Ham and Cardiff, but it was extremely important for the gunners to get wins in both these games after beginning the campaign with losses to Manchester City and Chelsea. This will be Arsenal’s last away game in a considerable amount of time, as they are at home in the next four without exception.

Newcastle United Team News

Florian Lejeune (cruciate ligament) and Javier Manquillo (ankle) are unavailable for Newcastle.
