Arsenal versus Newcastle EPL betting Preview

The first Sunday following the inaugural English Premier League winter break will see Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal play host to Newcastle United. The Gunners, who recently returned from warm-weather training camp in Dubai, will be keen to end their poor run of form, with nothing left to play for save for a place in the second tier European Cup competition as far as the Premier League standings is concerned.

Playing their final match in early February right before departing for the winter break, Arsenal only managed to register a 0-0 draw against Burnley in Turf Moor. What’s however worrying for Mikel Arteta is that result was Arsenal’s fourth successive draw in the Premier League, something that has heavily compromised on their hopes of making it to the UEFA Europa League, let alone the Champions League. The results have the Gunners in tenth on 31 points, coincidentally level on points with their opponents for this weekend, Newcastle United.

However, for all their shortcomings in the league, Arsenal have kept alive their hopes of finishing the season with silverware; advancing into the Fifth Round of the FA Cup along with making it into the Round of 32 of the Europa League.
Newcastle United is a side that has suffered a similar fate to Arsenal in the weeks leading up to the winter break. The Magpies had to settle for a barren draw with visiting Norwich City earlier in the month, with the outcome being their second consecutive draw in the Premier League, and their third overall prior to knocking out League One side Oxford United in the Fourth Round FA Cup replay. With 31 points from their first 25 EPL games, Steve Bruce’s side is 12th on the table—just two places below Arsenal due to an inferior goal difference.

Youngster Reiss Nelson looks set to be sidelined with a hamstring injury picked in training while Kieran Tierney is still recovering from a dislocated shoulder suffered during the tail end of last year; one that may take an additional month before the left back is fully fit.

Calum Chambers has no chance of making it into the match day squad, as the 24-year-old has been ruled out for the rest of the season due to a ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
Sead Kolasinac, who missed the draw with Burnley due to a thigh injury, could be up for selection, while the Newcastle clash may come too soon for Pablo Mari, who joined the club in January on loan from Brazilian side Flamengo.

Steve Bruce still has a lengthy list of players on the treatment table.
Andy Carroll has been ruled out of the encounter with a hip injury, but Dwight Gayle could stage an appearance.
Jonjo Shelvey will however sit out the encounter as the playmaker continues to nurse a hamstring injury suffered last month during their win over Chelsea, as will Japanese forward Yoshinori Muto who has a hip injury.

Emil Krafth will also miss the trip to the capital due to an ankle injury sustained against Everton last month, and the same goes for Javier Manquillo due to a hamstring issue suffered on New Year’s Day against Leicester City.

Paul Dummett will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing surgery following a tendon injury, whereas Jack Colback is also out of the tie due to a knee injury.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score anytime / Arsenal to win


Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang leads the goal scoring charts for Arsenal having found the back of the net 16 times across the board. With 14 goals in the Premier League alone, the current Golden Boot holder certainly has the monumental challenge of keeping up with the leading pack dominated by Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy who has three goals more.

Having missed crucial matches against Sheffield United and Chelsea in the Premier League, and Bournemouth in the FA Cup due to a red card suspension, the Gabon international—fresh from the winter break—could find the back of the net against the Magpies, just like he did during the first half of the campaign.

Arsenal versus Newcastle EPL Match Prediction

Mikel Arteta missed his most lethal man in the final third and it showed right before the winter break.

As much as both sides are at par on the standings, Arsenal’s well rested and moderately talented side should brush against Newcastle in London.
