The Premier League title race will be the focus of attention on Tuesday evening when league leaders Arsenal play a hotly-anticipated clash with top four rivals Newcastle in a 7:45pm GMT kick-off at the Emirates Stadium in London. Read below for our Premier League tips for this Arsenal vs Newcastle betting preview.
Arsenal Betting Trends
Arsenal come into this game in 1st place in the top flight and unbeaten in their last 10 league matches. It’s a run that includes the team winning their last 5 league matches and both of their league games since the players returned to action after the break for the 2022 World Cup.
It’s been an impressive run of home results so far this season with Mikel Arteta’s men winning each of their 7 matches played at this stadium. In fact, the Gunners have scored at least 3 goals in each of their last 4 home league games so they are prolific in front of their home fans.
There were those that questioned whether Arsenal could keep their title form going after the news that striker Gabriel Jesus was ruled out through injury for a number of weeks. Fortunately, his deputy Eddie Nketiah has stepped up with 2 goals in his 2 games played since Jesus was ruled out. Gabriel Martinelli could be the anytime scorer pick though having bagged a goal in his last two league outings and bagging 5 goals in his last 6 home appearances.
Newcastle Betting Trends
Newcastle have won plaudits this season for the way they have become part of the Champions League qualification conversation. Eddie Howe deserves a lot of credit for helping move the club up to the next level. Yes, there remains the controversy and criticism surrounding the ownership of the Magpies but on a strictly football level their progress is undeniable.
The Toon Army are in 3rd position in the league table and if they picked up a win here they would move into 2nd place and only be 6 points off the pace of top spot. Unfortunately, Newcastle’s record away to Arsenal leaves a little to be desired. The north east club have lost each of their last 10 trips to the Emirates Stadium across all competitions. This could be their best opportunity to exorcise that demon with the club undefeated in their last 15 matches in all competitions. It’s also been 4 wins from their last 5 away league games including winning their last 3 league matches on the road.
Arsenal vs Newcastle Betting Tips
This is certainly one of the highlight matches of the year. The way the table is coming together in this second half of the season means that games like this will go a long way to determining the fate of the two clubs involved. I feel Arsenal are playing so well at the moment that they need to be backed in every game. However, Newcastle have a grit and determination about them that means they could well snatch a point here.
