Match Preview

It promises to be a fascinating match-up at St. James’ Park this weekend, as two of the top three teams in the Premier League lock horns. Newcastle will be the narrow favorites in the betting to claim maximum points, as they chase a second straight home win against the Gunners since 1996.

Newcastle bounced back to their best form last weekend, as they picked up a second straight win against Southampton. The Toon have already proven to be tricky opponents for Arsenal this term, as they are one of just three teams that the Gunners have failed to beat in the Premier League this season.

Arsenal’s chance of a first Premier League title since 2003-04 already appears to be over, as they are playing catch-up to Man City. A run of four without a win appeared to damper their hopes, but the Gunners have been able to get back to winning ways recently, as they landed a straightforward 3-1 home win against a hapless Chelsea.

The Gunners haven’t enjoyed their recent visits to St. James’ Park, as they have failed to score in each of their previous two. But, their historical record in the North East remains strong. They had scored in each of their previous 18 visits before the last two, while they have kept clean sheets in 29 matches against Newcastle in the Premier League, which is the most of any side against a specific opponent.

Newcastle vs Arsenal Prediction

It looks set to be a huge match at St. James’ Park this weekend, and cases can be made for both sides. However, we could see Arsenal’s slim title dreams extinguished in the North East this weekend, with the Magpies picking up a comfortable 3-1 win in front of their home fans.
