Newcastle vs Arsenal
Newcastle United will be looking to improve on their last outing here following the 5-0 Premier League loss in their previous game against Manchester City.
In that game, Newcastle United had 29% possession and 7 shots at goal with 3 of them on target. For their opponents, Manchester City got 21 shots at goal with 9 on target. Raheem Sterling (19', 93'), Aymeric Laporte (38'), Rodri (61') and Phil Foden (90') scored for Manchester City.
A recurring trait of more recent Newcastle United games is the number of results with a nil in them.
Taking their prior 6 clashes before this one, in 5 of them a wager on "Both Teams to Score" would have lost. We will just have to find out whether or not that trend will end up being sustained here.
Going into this contest, Newcastle United haven't beaten Arsenal in their previous 7 matches in the league.
After a loss in their previous game against Tottenham Hotspur in Premier League action, Arsenal will be hoping to turn things around here.
In that game, Arsenal managed 42% possession and 8 attempts at goal with 4 of them on target. Tottenham Hotspur got 16 attempts on goal with 6 of them on target. Harry Kane (22', 37') and Heung-Min Son (47') scored for Tottenham Hotspur.
In a total of 5 out of the previous 6 games involving Arsenal, at least three goals have been struck. The average number of goals per match within that spell is 3.33, with the average number of goals for Arsenal being 1.83.
Coming into this meeting, Arsenal have not lost to Newcastle United when they have played them away from home in the previous 3 league games.
Our assessment here is that Newcastle United will really need to work well to put one past this Arsenal team who we think should manage to get a goal of their own in a winning performance.
We’re going for a hard-fought contest, finishing with a 0-1 advantage for Arsenal at the end of this game.
