Arsenal vs Newcastle Premier League match preview
Fresh from their warm-weather training camp in Dubai, Arsenal host Newcastle at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.
Prior to their mini winter break, Arsenal were held to a goalless draw at Burnley, extending their unbeaten run in all competitions to 7.
Arsenal are enduring their worst Premier League season ever. They have managed just four home wins all season, and their goal difference at the Emirates is exactly 0.
In their last home match, nearly a month ago, Arsenal were held to a 1-1 draw with Sheffield United.
Newcastle don’t have the greatest away record, winning just three of their 12 matches away from St. James’ Park. That said, the Magpies have managed to come away with points from visits to Everton, Wolves, Sheffield United and Spurs this season. Only Aston Villa have shipped more goals on the road than Newcastle’s 24.
In their most recent game, Sean Longstaff, Joelinton and Allan Saint-Maximin all scored in Newcastle’s FA Cup fourth-round replay win at Oxford United. Last time out in the Premier League, Newcastle were also held to a goalless draw at home to Norwich.
Both sides are level on 31 points. Arsenal begin the weekend in 10th while Newcastle are two places lower. Even if Arsenal win on Sunday, they’re unable to move up in the table.
Sunday’s clash will be the 50th in the Premier League between these two. Arsenal have 18 home wins over Newcastle, who have only won four times at Arsenal. Aubameyang scored the only goal of the game in Arsenal’s 1-0 win at St. James’ Park on the opening weekend of the season.
