Newcastle v Arsenal Latest News and Betting Preview

Newcastle v Arsenal – Premier League Betting News

Who knows what to make of Arsenal right now. They actually come into this one on the back of a three-match winning run in the Premier League, but were poor against Southampton last week and turned in a lacklustre display in Moscow on Thursday night.

CSKA were rotten, but Arsenal were worse and what should have been a cruise turned into an arduous qualification.

That Thursday night endeavour in Eastern Europe has to leave the Gunners vulnerable on Sunday against much-improved Newcastle.

Given what we know about where Arsenal’s priorities for what’s left of this season now lie and the defeats they’ve suffered this year alone at the likes of Nottingham Forest, Bournemouth, Swansea and Brighton, Newcastle at 9/4 with might just rate as the bet of the weekend.

The Newcastle Toon Army are on the march themselves, with three successive wins leading them to almost certain survival. They swept aside Southampton – something Arsenal found much harder to do – and last week’s 2-1 win at Leicester was a real eye-catcher.

Newcastle in their last three home games have been 1-0, 3-0 and 1-0 wins over Manchester United, Southampton and Huddersfield and if you want to be greedy you could do far worse than the 23/4 on another home win to nil given the current form of Jamaal Lascelles and company – especially if Arsenal make changes.

Ayoze Perez has scored in Newcastle last two games and is 14/5 to find the net here against an Arsenal defence that looked all at sea at times against Southampton and CSKA.

If Arsenal do score, it’s likely to come from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Ineligible for the Europa League, he’s certain to lead the line here again and is 21/20 to extend his current scoring run to five consecutive matches.

Arsenal to win at 13/10
Newcastle 1-0 at 23/4
Perez To Score Anytime at 14/5
