Arsenal v Newcastle betting tips: Magpies still without a win
Preview and odds for Saturday’s Premier League clash
Newcastle dropped to the foot of the Premier League last weekend and face a tough test on Saturday lunchtime as we pick out some Arsenal v Newcastle betting tips.
The winless Magpies drew 3-3 with Brentford in the first match of the Eddie Howe era and now face the Gunners, who will hope to bounce back from a 4-0 thrashing at Liverpool.
Saturday’s match at the Emirates Stadium kicks off at 12.30pm and is live on BT Sport.
Arsenal v Newcastle match odds
Newcastle start the weekend five points adrift of safety so have little time to spare in their bid to climb out of the bottom three.
Howe’s first match in charge did not go to plan when he was forced to watch the game from his hotel room after testing positive for Covid-19 but he will be in the dugout this weekend after a negative test.
There were some positives as Newcastle came from behind twice to rescue a point but they conceded goals all too easily again.
Arsenal’s eight-match unbeaten run ended at Anfield but they will be confident of a return to winning ways at 4/9, having won all four matches against the current bottom six this season.
Three of those wins were only 1-0 and a repeat of that score can be backed in Arsenal v Newcastle betting tips at 7/1 while the Magpies are 9/5 to avoid defeat and 6/1 for a much-needed first win of the campaign.
Arsenal v Newcastle head-to-head
Recent history suggests a routine win for Arsenal and offers little encouragement for Newcastle fans making the long trip to London.
The Gunners have won the previous seven meetings in all competitions and the last six of those were all to nil, although they did need extra time in last season’s FA Cup tie.
Arsenal v Newcastle key battles
Newcastle know all about the threat posed by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has a superb record in this fixture.
He has scored in each of the five meetings in all competitions over the last two seasons, including a brace in the 3-0 Premier League win here in January.
Allan Saint-Maximin’s equaliser secured a point for the Magpies last weekend and he is 9/2 to be on target again as the last of our Arsenal v Newcastle betting tips.
