Newcastle United vs Arsenal Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Newcastle United made it three consecutive wins after beating Leicester City 2-1 at the King Power Stadium. Jonjo Shelvey’s cool finish from outside the box led to the opener against Leicester, while Ayoze Pérez continued his good run with a second-half goal. Even though Leicester pulled one back through Jamie Vardy with seven minutes left, there was not to be a comeback. Arsenal survived a major scare and qualified for the Europa League semi-finals – even after a 2-2 draw with CSKA Moscow. Goals from Fedor Chalov and Kirill Nababkin were able to put Arsenal on the verge of a collapse, but late goals from Danny Welbeck and Aaron Ramsey led to a 6-3 win on aggregate. During the weekend, Arsenal managed a narrow 3-2 win over Southampton.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Arsenal head up to the St James’ Park looking to become the first team to score at this ground for more than two months. Burnley were the last team to score against Newcastle at home. Since then, the team has kept three consecutive clean sheets – including in the game against Manchester United. However, this run may be broken by Arsenal, who have been involved in some entertaining encounters of late. Even though the last three meetings between these two teams have been won by Arsenal with a 1-0 score, I would choose over 2.5 goals in this game.

Newcastle have a lot of confidence coming into the game, while Arsenal are likely to shift their focus to the Europa League. After having just travelled a long way from the recent game against CSKA Moscow, the gunners face yet another lengthy trip. Newcastle can profit from the situation as they have had a full week to prepare for this game. Still, Arsenal’s good form means that I would back a draw in the game.

Newcastle United Preview

Three consecutive victories have put Newcastle as the favourites to finish in the top 10 ahead of Bournemouth and Watford. The Magpies are only three points behind Everton with a game in hand. The European spots may be out of reach for Rafa Benitez and his team, but a top-10 finish – after having just been promoted from the Championship – would be a good campaign indeed. Newcastle, however, have tricky games against the likes of Everton and Spurs in their final six matches.

Newcastle United Team News

Robert Elliott (back) is the only player unavailable for Rafa Benitez.

Arsenal Preview

Arsenal’s progression to the Europa League semi-finals, where they would face Atletico Madrid, throws up a different scenario going into the last four weeks of the campaign. The gunners will not be able to reach the Champions League by virtue of their Premier League positions, but they can reach the Premier European competition by winning the Europa League. Hence, Arsenal may shift their focus to the upcoming game against Atletico. The recent momentum built up since the win over AC Milan has helped Arsenal remain well ahead of Burnley going into the final few weeks. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been quite excellent for the gunners in recent weeks.

Arsenal Team News

Santi Cazorla (Achilles tendon), Henrikh Mkhitaryan (ligament), David Ospina (ankle), and Gedion Zelalem (cruciate ligament) are unavailable for Arsene Wenger.
