Arsenal vs Newcastle Premier League

The match is over.
Score: 2-0.

The Premier League returns this weekend following on from the international break with the Monday night action seeing top four chasing Arsenal play host to an in-form Newcastle United side, who have moved away from the relegation zone in recent weeks.

Predictions

Both these sides are in strong form with Arsenal unbeaten in their last five league games and Newcastle suffering defeat just once in their last six matches.

The Gunners are up to fourth in the standings having collected 13 points from their last five matches, with their only dropped points coming in a 1-1 draw at Tottenham.

Unai Emery’s side are now fourth in the standings, two points above Manchester United and three above Chelsea, while they are just one point behind Tottenham.

Newcastle have collected an impressive 10 points from their last five matches in the division, and are now seven points clear of the relegation zone.

The hosts will be favourites to continue their recent winning run due to possessing home advantage, superior form and quality over Newcastle.

The home side are favourites to win this game and should be relatively comfortable – a 3-1 triumph for the North London side would appear a likely outcome from it.

Betting Tips

Newcastle have scored two goals or more in four of their last five matches while Arsenal have been in great goalscoring form recently – netting 17 goals in their last seven games in all competitions. This game is likely to have goals once again and this is among the best online betting odds for this round of games. 888Sport price it at 33/20.

The last four goals of the German playmaker have all come in home games while he has netted three career goals against Newcastle – including finding the net during the 2-1 victory in the North-East earlier this campaign. He has not been a regular for Unai Emery’s side this campaign but is gaining increasing prominence in starting line-ups and is the man who could unlock a tight Magpies defence on Monday. He’s 3/1 anytime with 888Sport.
