Tip Reasoning

  • Newcastle have lost only one of their last eight Premier League matches.
  • Arsenal have failed to win seven of their last nine fixtures in all competitions.

Newcastle finishing with a flourish

Newcastle have pulled clear of their early-season struggles to set up a strong finish to the 2020/21 campaign, and the Magpies can pocket another good result against an out-of-sorts Arsenal team on Sunday.

Steve Bruce’s charges snatched a point at Anfield last time out in hugely dramatic circumstances, though the provider of their late leveller, Joe Willock, cannot face his parent club this weekend.

Newcastle have now lost just once in their last eight Premier League assignments, and impressive recent displays against big-hitting trio Tottenham, West Ham and Liverpool showcased the confidence the Magpies currently wield.

Arsenal stutter in Spain

Arsenal’s poor form continued on Thursday evening when they were bested 2-1 in Spain by Villarreal in the first leg of the teams’ Europa League semi-final, and though the Gunners did manage to bag an away goal, their overall performance was a concern.

Following their latest setback, Arsenal’s record now reads an underwhelming two wins from their last nine matches in all competitions, and Mikel Arteta has masterminded just four victories in the club’s last 13 Premier League tests.

Newcastle to avoid defeat?

Armed with renewed self-belief from a string of promising performances against some of the division’s leading lights, Newcastle should have a kick in their step on Sunday and the Magpies are worth backing in the double chance market as a result.

Arsenal could be a little battle-weary following their taxing fixture in Spain, and a more rested Newcastle outfit, who are unbeaten in five games at St. James’ Park, can take advantage of the Gunners’ fatigue.

Newcastle’s improved form has been driven by a great threat in the final third, indeed, United have scored at least twice in three of their last four matches and in three of their last five contests on home turf.

Our 2-1 correct score prediction tips the hosts to add another brace to their tally at the Gunners’ expense, though Newcastle are without a clean sheet in their last eight games at St. James’ Park, and Arsenal could net a consolation.
