Newcastle United v Arsenal Tips & Predictions
11th August 2019 – 14:00
Match Preview & Team News
Arsenal had a disappointing campaign in the previous term of the Premier League when they gave up the top-four-finish battle due to a dismal end to the season. They will not feature the Champions League football this time around but look determined to make it to the top-four at the end of the new season.
The Gunners travel to St. James’ Park to take on Newcastle in what is going to be a tough test for Unai Emery and his men at the beginning of the 2019/20 campaign. The Toons look stronger than they were last year with the additions of Hoffenheim’s Joelinton and Nice’s Allan Sain-Maximin.
The hosts go into this high on confidence after back-to-back wins over Hibernian and Saint-Etienne in the last two summer checks. They’ve bagged five goals in the process and will fancy their chances of scoring here against Arsenal who have rarely kept their net untouched on travels last season.
Unai Emery’s squad only won 7 of 19 away fixtures in the previous term of the Premier League and we don’t see any value in backing them to claim the victory here at 8/11 odds. On the other side, we have to mention that the Gunners have always been a tricky opposition for the Magpies. Arsenal have won 12 of past 13 head to head meetings with Newcastle United who still have a positive home record against the Gunners (37 wins to Arsenal’s 24).
Each of the past four games Arsenal played saw goals scored at both ends and this is exactly the scenario we are expecting to see when they take on the Toons.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Newcastle United could be a tough nut to crack in front of their fans under Steve Bruce this season and we will back the Toons to stay undefeated at 1/1 odds here.
Goals Market Prediction
Both sides have strong firepower on display in the final third and we should see goals when they come across each other. The second pick is Both Teams To Score at the odds of 7/10.
