Current form — Arsenal v. Newcastle
The Gunners continue to collect points
Arsenal look to build on their current momentum with another positive result. Mikel Arteta’s side are looking to bounce back from a recent setback and get back to winning ways. In their last three matches, they first took out Leicester by 2-0, before downing Watford by 1-0. The winning streak came to an end against Liverpool, who ran out 4-0 winners.
The Magpies hoping for fresh start
Newcastle will enter the match hoping to see the back of some rather disappointing results in recent matches. It is not all bad, but it is not fantastic either for Eddie Howe’s side right now, with just 2 points from their last 3 matches. They started by losing 0-3 at the hands of Chelsea, before drawing 1-1 with Brighton. They secured a point in their latest encounter, a 3-3 draw against Brentford.
On the back of the aforementioned results, paired with rather erratic performances by Newcastle, siding with Arsenal at odds 1.49 seem the obvious way to go. This looks like a good opportunity to add three points to their tally.

Callum Wilson has managed to score 2 times in the last half dozen matches for Newcastle, and he hopes to add to that tally at the Emirates.
