Anything but a win here would be a disaster for Arsene Wenger and his men who are finding it tough to score lately. The Gunners managed to find the back of the net no more than two times in last three league ties, including a goalless draw away at West Ham United on Wednesday.

This should, however, be changed at the weekend given Newcastle’s obvious defensive woes. The Magpies came on the brink of the drop zone after a streak that saw them lose seven and draw one of eight previous league fixtures. Rafael Benitez’s side conceded at least two goals in five of last six matches in Premier League.

It will be the music to the ears of Alexandre Lacazette who has eight goals to his name so far in the season, but who has yet been struggling with the form as of late. The clash against one of the most out-of-form defensive lines in the competition could likely help the French striker find the right shape and backing him as the anytime goalscorer might be a decent shout here.

Arsenal vs Newcastle United: Predictions

The Gunners should go strong from the very first minute of the game and we believe they’ll be able to score an early opener.

The bet that stands out is HT/FT Arsenal/Arsenal at the odds of 1.72, while you can have Lacazette to score anytime at 1.66.
