European club football has reached its final stages and all eyes are again on the Premier League point table. The league leaders, Arsenal, will be traveling to St. James’ Park to face Newcastle for their away fixture. It is a crucial fixture for both teams.
Arsenal would like to distance themselves from the Citizens by gaining some away points and staying at the top. The Magpies would like to distance themselves from the Red Devils who are just two points behind.
Newcastle has regained their third spot and now has won 18 games with 65 points in their pocket.
Arsenal is in a vulnerable situation as they are just two points ahead of the Citizens with two more games played, the Gunners will have to win the remaining games in the Premier League to be crowned champion.
The Magpies are on a three-match winning streak and they are coming to host Arsenal after scoring a 3-1 win against Southampton.
With 64% possession, Newcastle dominated the game and Callum Wilson scored a duo.
However, it should be noted that the Magpies have struggled to get Clean Sheets since their win over Manchester United.
Emil Krafth and Allan Saint-Maximin are out of action because of their respective injuries.
Predicted Lineup: Pope–Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn – Longstaff, Guimaraes, Willock – Almiron, Joelinton, Isak
The Gunners are back on the top of the Premier League but still, the danger is looming as Manchester City is just two points behind. They will be traveling to face Newcastle after scoring a win over Chelsea by 3-1.
Martin Odegaard was the hero of the game as he scored twice in the early minutes of the game. Like Newcastle, Arsenal’s defense has also struggled in recent fixtures.
William Saliba has still not recovered and is expected to be absent from the game.
Predicted Lineup: Ramsdale; White, Holding, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Trossard; Jesus
The similarity between both the teams is their weak defense, but Arsenal’s attack has turned out to be the best in the English Premier League this year.
We predict a win for Arsenal with goals scored on both sides.
