Arsenal will be looking to start anew and put the 4-0 loss to Liverpool behind them. Going into the game their chances already looked slim with the Gunners not being able to beat Liverpool at Anfield in the last eight times of asking.
After three games Mikel Arteta was the favourite to be sacked and with five managers gone in that period his job now looks safer than ever before.
Eddie Howe sadly didn’t get to show his face in his first game against Brentford as Covid-19 had left him isolated at home, though hopefully he will be back to face the North London giants on Saturday.
Last week’s fixture against the Bee’s finished 3-3 with Jamal Lascelles managing to get a goal for both sides and Allan Saint-Maximin goal and assist now makes him the highest contributor for Newcastle this season.
The head-to-heads are certainly in the London side’s favour, as of the 18 meetings since the beginning of 2012, Arsenal have a remarkable W17-L1 record, scoring more than four times the amount of the MAgpies across these outings (40-9).
The most common score-line was 1-0 which occurred 6 times out of the possible 18, so you could find some value in this market when the odds are just short of nine.
The last six meetings have also seen Arsenal win to nil, so that’s certainly an unwanted record the visitors are taking into this game.
Arsenal To Win And Both Teams To Score
Newcastle are yet to register a win in the topflight this season, with six draws and losses to their name meaning their new era hasn’t got off to the best start, and they’ll have a real challenge on their hands if they want to avoid the drop.
They have conceded the highest number of goals this season with 27, joint with Norwich, but have scored almost twice as many as their 19th positioned rival.
With Eddie Howe’s arrival they will probably be investing in the January transfer window so they can start building the club that the fans deserve.
Judging by how the season has panned out thus far, and the head-to-head record between these two sides, a home win looks very much on the cards.
While the Gunners have won the last six meetings to nil, we wouldn’t be too sure on that outcome again here with the Magpies having netted in all but one of their last 10 outings, with the exception coming against the best defence in the league in Chelsea.
That leaves value in the Arsenal and BTTS market, with the likes of Allan Saint-Maximin and Callum Wilson providing enough of a goal threat for the visitors.
