What Trueform says for Arsenal vs Newcastle
Arsenal can stay on track for a top-four finish in the Premier League by beating Newcastle, but the Magpies are playing well enough to make their presence felt.
United travel to Emirates Stadium having lost just one of their last six matches, although they haven’t won away from home since mid-December.
Everything points towards the Gunners prevailing in an entertaining encounter, so 9/5 for a home win and both teams to score is our first Arsenal vs Newcastle prediction.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal continued their excellent home form when following up a 2-0 defeat of Manchester United in this competition by beating Rennes 3-0 in the Europa League.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Ainsley Maitland-Niles cancelled out a first-leg deficit early on against the French outfit and then Aubameyang earned his side a place in the quarter-finals late on.
“The Europa League is giving us a big opportunity also to make one way to the Champions League,” commented Unai Emery.
“It was a good evening. I’m very proud of the supporters and players.”
In the Premier League, Arsenal have rattled off 13 wins in a 15-match unbeaten run on home turf since starting out here with a loss to Manchester City.
They are playing with style and swagger at this venue, so 87/100 for Emery’s side to oblige and over 2.5 goals in the game stands out from the Arsenal vs Newcastle odds.
Last Arsenal line-up: Cech, Koscielny, Monreal, Mustafi, Kolasinac, Ramsey, Ozil, Maitland-Niles, Xhaka, Lacazette, Aubameyang.
Arsenal will be without the suspended Lucas Torreira, but Aaron Ramsey is expected to be passed fit, having been troubled by his left thigh, as is Nacho Monreal, who has returned to training after hurting his right calf.
Granit Xhaka also faces a late fitness test on a muscle injury but striker Danny Welbeck is out with an ankle injury, while knee issues continue to sideline Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding.
A Look At Newcastle United’s Betting Odds
Newcastle have pulled nicely clear of relegation trouble thanks to five straight league victories at St James’ Park and have also been holding their own on the road.
The Magpies were a touch unlucky to lose away to Tottenham, came within a whisker of winning at Wolves and, after a bit of a blip at West Ham, did well to draw 2-2 at Bournemouth.
A Josh King double helped the Cherries to recover from Salomon Rondon’s opener on the stroke of half-time, but Matt Ritchie levelled things up via a stunning, last-gasp volley.
“It’s a very good point,” said Rafael Benitez “To get a draw against a very good attacking team after you’re losing 2-1, it’s a good point.”
The spirit shown at Vitality Stadium will stand United in good stead again here, although it’s hard to get away from the Gunners due to their strong home form.
Let’s finish off our Arsenal vs Newcastle betting tips by taking 10/1 for a 3-1 triumph by the hosts.
Last Newcastle line-up: Dubravka, Dummett, Fernandez, Lejeune, Yedlin, Diame, Ritchie, Hayden, Almiron, Rondon, Perez.
Fabian Schar will miss out for Newcastle through suspension, but skipper Jamaal Lascelles has recovered from a knee problem , leaving only Sean Longstaff (knee) on the sidelines.
ARSENAL 3-0 Rennes – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (2), Ainsley Maitland-Niles
Bournemouth 2-2 NEWCASTLE – Salomon Rondon, Matt Ritchie
Head-to-head: Newcastle 1-2 Arsenal, Newcastle 2-1 Arsenal, Arsenal 1-0 Newcastle
