Arsenal vs Newcastle prediction and betting tips for Monday night’s big premier league game at both ends of the table. The Gunners are looking to strengthen their top four chances whilst the Magpies are trying to secure their top flight status.
Both Arsenal and Newcastle come into this fixture in great form. Arsenal have been brilliant form recently in the Premier League. Unbeaten in their last five games, now sitting in the top four. Unai Emery’s team are looking to get back into the Champions League for the first time since 2017. Their home form has been key this season, with their only loss at the Emirates in the league coming in the opening game of the season against Manchester City.
With 11 points in the last six games, Newcastle are pushing ever closer towards safety. Rafa Benitez has seemed to have done the trick again, picking up important wins when needed. Monday nights fixture will be a big test for the North East side and we’re not expecting any fireworks from the Magpies in this one.
Arsenal can go ahead of rivals Tottenham in the table with a win here, after Spurs were beaten 2-1 at Liverpool thanks to another Hugo Lloris error. This will give the Gunners real hope of finishing in the top 4 and with the easier run-in, they’ll want to be sure of three points against Rafa Benitez’ side tonight.
Arsenal have had no problem in finding the back of the net this season. With two prolific strikers in Lacazette and Aubameyang, they have only failed to score twice in 30 league games this season, against Manchester City and West Ham. They managed to put five past Bournemouth at the end of last month, and could easily do the same if they get going on Monday.
Newcastle have scored five goals in their last two fixtures and will fancy themselves to score again. Especially with their main man up top Salomon Rondon in great form.
My goalscorer prediction for this one is Lacazette. Whether he starts or comes on from the bench the Frenchman has a great chance of finding the net. You can get him to score anytime at 23/2- with Ladbrokes.
Pierre Emerick Aubameyang already has 17 goals to his name this season and is favourite in the anytime goalscorer odds for tonight, however Lacazette is almost as potent in front of goal and the odds are slightly better for him to get a goal, so that’s what we’re going with in our Arsenal vs Newcastle betting tips.
With the form that Arsenal are in, I find it tough to see past them winning. They will most likely score a fair few whilst on their way to the three points. Newcastle will go into this game with hope after their good performances recently, but as this fixture is at the Emirates it will take a lot to get anything from the Gunners. I’m predicting that both teams will score in this one too. I feel that Arsenal will win 4-1 and you can get this at 20/1 with bet365.
Make sure you don’t use a different bookies for this bet because the odds are lower, some firms are just 14/1 for the same bet, meaning you would win £60 less for each £10 you bet.
