The Magpies picked a 2-1 win away at Leicester City last week to make it 3 wins on the bounce. The 9 points in short time ended any threat of relegation and Rafa’s team now sit at 10th in the standings.

The momentum must come handy for Newcastle in welcoming Arsenal, since it was not long ago that they bagged a morale boosting victory against Manchester United.

Arsenal though, are also on a three match winning streak in the Premier League. But all those games were played at the Emirates.

The last away game for Gunners in the league was at Brighton on 4th March, 35 days ago. They ended up losing 2-1 back then, which is their fourth away defeat on the bounce. Wenger’s men have been extremely poor in travels this season and have won only 3 of their 15 games so far, while lost a massive 8.

Newcastle vs Arsenal: Head-to-head

Arsenal are on a 10 match winning run against Newcastle and are unbeaten in 12, all games in the English Premier League.

Newcastle vs Arsenal: Prediction

Newcastle are on red hot form and they will be in good spirits. But Arsenal, despite losing three away games on the bounce in the league can look at their recent streak and draw some confidence. Combining the Europa League fixtures, Wenger’s men are on a 7 match unbeaten streak with wins in 6 prior to the midweek draw at CSKA Moscow. Having taken the Magpies to the cleaners in every visit to the St. James Park in over a decade, we must be looking at an away win on Sunday.
