Eight points scored significantly improved Newcastle's standings. The Magpies climbed to 16th place, already breaking away from the relegation zone by nine points. Steve Bruce's team practically guaranteed itself a residence permit. In the remaining five matches three points scored should be enough for a calm finish.
At their home arena, Newcastle have not lost in five matches in a row, but apart from the hammers they managed to beat only Southampton (3:2). In general, in terms of playing in their home arena, Newcastle is 13th in the Premier League. In 16 home games the Magpies won five victories, ended the same number of meetings in a draw and lost in six matches. It should be noted that the defense of Steve Bruce's team regularly misfires at home. The Magpies have conceded in their last eight home games in a row.
Midfielders Isaac Hayden, Ryan Fraser and Joseph Willock, defender Jamaal Lassels and goalkeeper Karl Darlow will miss the game due to injuries. Questionable are Fabian Sher and Matt Ritchie.
Therefore, Arsenal are now making their main bets in the Europa League. Last Thursday the Londoners played their first semi-final away game with Villarreal in this European competition and lost 1:2. The return leg is already next week and Arsenal will play with an eye to it.
The London club have not lost in four games in a row on the road. During this period, the Gunners managed to beat Leicester (3:1) and Sheffield United (3:0) and also ended in a draw with West Ham (3:3) and Burnley (1:1) ). Now Arsenal have the seventh highest ranking in the Premier League in terms of playing on the fields of their opponents. In 16 away matches, the Londoners have achieved seven victories, lost six meetings and drew three times.
Arsenal has no personnel losses.
Our prediction is a win for Newcastle with a handicap (0) for 2.65 in BC Betway.
It is unlikely that in this meeting we will see attacking open football. Arsenal play more on the road, while Newcastle also plays against such opponents as the Gunners, preferring to play from an opponent.
Second bet is for a total under 2.5 goals in 2.09.
Place a bet on the line of Betway with odds of 2.65.
