Arsenal – Newcastle Preview

  • Arsenal fans missing European football at the Emirates Stadium this term have at least been compensated with their side’s best 12-game Premier League (PL) start since 2018/19 (W6, D2, L4). Although well placed to challenge for a top-four place, there’s still a clear gap between them and the title contenders, as evidenced by their 4-0 defeat to Liverpool (Nov 20).
  • That ended an eight-game league unbeaten run (W6, D2), but this represents a good chance to bounce back as they haven’t lost a home PL game against Newcastle United since November 2010 (W9). ‘Gunners’ fans will therefore expect another triumph here – and a comfortable one too, given they’ve averaged three goals per game across the last three league H2Hs.
  • While Newcastle’s new owners will eventually demand European qualification, that remains a long way off as they must now focus on gaining their first league win of the season (D6, L6). Lying five points below 17th-placed Leeds United, they’re bidding to become just the second side in a 38-game PL season to survive after a 12-game winless start!
  • On the road in the league this term, it’s been either 1-1 draws or defeats in which they conceded 2+ goals (D3, L3) and given their appalling record here, the ‘Magpies’ would gladly accept another score draw. They’ll need to get on the front foot though, having conceded first in five (83%) of their PL away matches this season.
  • Players to watch: Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored six times in his last five competitive appearances against Newcastle, each of those goals coming after half-time. For Newcastle, Allan Saint-Maximin has six direct PL goal contributions this term (G3, A3), with his three goals all arriving after the 40th minute.
  • Hot stat: The last PL matchday produced an average of 3.6 goals per match – the games involving these two witnessed ten!
