Match Preview

Though the club has endured a summer of turmoil off the field, Newcastle United have won three of their last five Premier League (PL) games going into this one (W3, D1, L1), having also opened the scoring (inside the first half-hour) in three of their last four league outings.
This is the third time in as many seasons, since returning to the PL, that Newcastle will host a previous season top-six club on the opening day. They have lost both previous instances, with all match goals on the day arriving inside the same half-hour segment (0-30th or 61st-90th+ minute).
A drab end to 2018/19 saw Arsenal rack up three defeats in their last five league outings (W1, D1, L3). Four of them produced over 2.5 total goals, with a majority (three) seeing the second half produce 3+ goals either way.
Arsenal’s PL away form has also been thoroughly disappointing since the start of December 2018 (W3, D3, L7). Curiously, each draw saw them score first (inside the first half-hour) but then concede the next match goal.
Players to watch: Newcastle defender Ciaran Clark netted a consolation in last season’s PL fixture here. Going back to 2012/13, his last 12 goals have come via his head.
Ivorian attacker Nicolas Pépé is in line to debut for Arsenal. His last four goals have come as part of victories where his team have scored five times on the day! The three from open play therein all came via his left boot.
Stat attack: Across all venues, Newcastle have previously faced Arsenal twice on day one of a PL season, returning a record of: D1, L1.
Arsenal’s last three PL games to produce over 2.5 goals have seen one team score exactly three times in one half.
The ‘Gunners’ have not scored at all inside the middle third (31st-60th minute) within their last six PL away defeats.
