Arsenal vs Newcastle United – Goals expected at the Emirates
Newcastle United head to the Emirates having lost just once away from home in their last six matches in all competitions.
Arsenal head in to the game on the back of a midweek European defeat to Shakhtar Donetsk but Arsene Wenger will be confident his side can register their fourth home win in a row.
The recent Carling Cup game between these two ended 4-0 to Arsenal at St James Park and despite both sides fielding under strength sides, the result may end the same to day with Arsenal as short as 10/1 to win 4-0.
Arsenal have only lost once at the Emirates this season, but that was to Newcastle’s promotion pals West Brom and Chris Hughton will want to emulate last years Championship runners-up – Newcastle are 11/1 to beat Arsenal.
But the Magpies have struggled in their last 15 matches against the Gunners, winning just once and Arsenal are 2/9 to win with the draw available at 5/1.
Arsenal have won all of their past three home meetings with Newcastle 3-0 and the same scoreline is priced at 7/1.
In Andy Carroll and Kevin Nolan, Newcastle have two players that are in fine goalscoring form with 12 of Newcastle’s 19 Premier League goals this season, and they will need to find the net if Newcastle are to win with Arsenal averaging three home goals a game.
Nolan is 5/1 to score any time while Carroll is 4/1 to score any time, but with 18 Arsenal players ahead of them in the market, the Premier League betting market suggest an Arsenal whitewash.
Newcastle have managed five goals in their five Premier League matches away from home which would suggest their capable of nicking a goal but Arsenal are good value at 5/4 to win to nil.
All the stats point to an Arsenal 3-0 win. See the full Arsenal vs Newcastle match betting odds here.
