Arsenal vs Newcastle United Match Preview
Arsenal recorded a fourth consecutive draw, in their last clash on the road, with Burnley after both teams failed to find the back of the net. Miserably the hosts have now shared the spoils thirteen times this season, which is two more than any other side in the cluster.
However, it is certainly worth noting that the Gunners have not admitted defeat since the start of the new year. They have also stumbled just twice in their previous ten games in the Premier League.
With thirty-one points to their name, Mikel Arteta’s men are currently sitting tenth on the ladder, four points adrift of ninth-placed Wolves.
Meanwhile, Newcastle United are on an unbeaten run of their own at the moment. The visitors have salvaged a point at the least in each of their past four PL clashes, the most recent of which saw them hold Norwich to a stalemate.
At the moment, the guests are level on the points with Arsenal on the ladder. As such, count on both teams to settle for nothing but the win.
Arsenal vs Newcastle United Prediction
To be frank, Arsenal have been faring a lot better at home than on the road this season. The Gunners have not lost any of their past two clashes here. Furthermore, the hosts have admitted defeat to a foe outside the top ten just once on home soil this season.
In sharp contrast, Newcastle United are winless in their last four outings in the top flight. To be specific, the visitors have not had a taste of success on the road since their 2-0 win over Sheffield United back in early December.
Piling on even more misery, the Magpies have not emerged victoriously in any of their last seven visits here. Hence, it goes without saying that Arsenal are the favorites to pick up all three points in this one.
Additionally, the hosts have looked confident at the back in their recent clashes on home soil. Impressively, they have conceded just once in their past three matchups here in all competitions.
Moreover, Newcastle have failed to get their names on the scoresheet in each of their past three visits to this stadium. Taking into account that the reverse fixture of this matchup was also a low scoring affair, count on Arsenal to wrap things up with no more than a goal or two at the most.
