Arsenal v Newcastle: Premier League
Arsenal v Newcastle United in the teatime Premier League kick off this evening from The Emirates…
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is out with a hamstring problem so Francis Coquelin has been recalled from a loan spell at Charlton as cover.
Defenders Laurent Koscielny and Nacho Monreal are injured, while Calum Chambers serves a one-match ban.
Newcastle are without midfielder Moussa Sissoko and defender Steven Taylor because of suspension.
Captain Fabricio Coloccini is expected to be fit, while midfielder Mehdi Abeid could return from a toe injury.
- Arsenal have won five league matches in a row against Newcastle.
- They have scored 12 goals in their previous three matches against Newcastle at the Emirates.
- Newcastle have won just two of their last 28 meetings with Arsenal in all competitions (W2, D8, L18).
- Arsenal have lost three of their last five league matches.
- They have only suffered one defeat in their seven league games at the Emirates this season, but they have also drawn three of those games (W3, D3, L1).
- The Gunners have come from behind to draw or win in four of those seven home games.
- Arsenal haven’t scored in the first half of any of their last six league matches.
- Alexis Sanchez has either scored or assisted nine of Arsenal’s last 13 Premier League goals (seven goals, two assists).
- Newcastle have won six of their last eight Premier League matches.
- Only Manchester City (16) and Manchester United (15) have won more points than Newcastle (13) from the last six games.
- Seven of Newcastle’s league goals this season have been scored by substitutes – more than any other top-flight side.
- The Magpies are the only team yet to score in the opening 30 minutes of their league matches this season. Their earliest goal this season has come in the 37th minute.
- Since the start of last season, Newcastle have been shown more red cards than any other Premier League side (nine).
- The Geordies have scored just seven goals in eight Premier League away games this season
- Arsenal have failed to score more than once in four of their last five Premier League games at any venue.
Despite both sides looking reasonably solid defensively, they have their frailties and odds of 2.2 on there being more than 2.5 goals in the game looks a good bet.
- Arsenal haven’t scored a first-half goal in any of their last six Premier League matches
- Newcastle are yet to score a goal before the 37th minute of a game this season.
Therefore, the 0-0 in the Half Time Score market at odds of 3.4 looks to be another good value play.
