Arsenal vs Newcastle United Prediction
Arsenal has been on a path of a comeback in the league after dropping points earlier. They have been unbeaten in the recent four fixtures in the campaign. Their scoring department hasn’t been at their best this season, as the Gunners are struggling to find the back of the net in the PL fixture.
Newcastle is also having problems with their forwards as the Magpies hardly made the scoring average close to one goal per game. Even so, we can expect the match to be a high-scoring affair at Emirates Stadium on Monday. So, the tip for over 2.5 goals will probably be a suitable option for the punters.
The home win in full-time is the ideal choice in the encounter. Regarding their ground advantage and squad strength, the Gunners are likely to create more chances in the game. Hence, the tip for Arsenal to win will probably be the best bet for the punters in the clash.
