Arsenal v Newcastle United Match Preview

Arsenal find themselves falling away from the European berths and Mikel Arteta will be desperate to turn things around

Arsenal have been forced to share the spoils in each of their last four Premier League games and this has been enough to send Mikel Arteta’s men down to tenth position in the top-flight.

Arsenal v Newcastle United: 4:30 pm, Sunday 16th February, Emirates Stadium. Sky Sports

 

Good record

Arsenal enjoy a decent head-to-head record against weekend opponents Newcastle United with the Gunners winning all-but-one of their last fourteen meetings with the Magpies and the visitors losing sixteen of their last eighteen against the Gunners in the capital. Recently, the meetings between these two sides have usually been low-scoring affairs and in fairness we anticipate this latest meeting being an evenly-fought encounter, especially so given these sides’ respective form with stalemates being a very prominent theme in recent results.

 

Draws galore

Arsenal have been forced to share the spoils in each of their last four Premier League outings with draws in 13 of their last 22 games across competitions. Under new manager Mikel Arteta, there have been a mere three wins from nine although defensively there has been a marked improvement even though this has as yet failed to deliver any meaningful upturn in fortunes.

 

Misfiring Magpies

Weekend visitors Newcastle United have avoided defeat since the start of the year, however that statistic is far from impressive when one considers that the Magpies were held to draws (in 90 minutes) on three occasions by League One opposition in the FA Cup and could only manage a goal-less draw with rock-bottom side Norwich City in the Premier League.

 

More away woes

As stated above, Newcastle United don’t enjoy a good record by any means when facing the Gunners in the capital and while they look relatively safe with regard to a potential relegation scrap, we envisage the Magpies coming away empty-handed on Sunday afternoon.
