Newcastle United vs. Arsenal: Premier League – Match Preview

Two of last season’s top four go head to head Saturday tea time as Arsenal travel to face Newcastle United.

Newcastle United twice led but were held to a frustrating 2-2 draw away to Wolves last weekend, with Callum Wilson scoring both for the visiting side.

They embarrassed Manchester United 3-0 at Old Trafford in the Carabao Cup midweek though, easing to victory despite a heavily rotated side.

Arsenal were eliminated from the competition, losing 3-1 away to London rivals West Ham United.

Eddie Nketiah scored a hat-trick as they eased past the bottom side Sheffield United in the league last weekend and they sit second on goals scored.

Team news
Sven Botman has been ruled out for a prolonged period of time, meaning Jamal Lascelles will likely continue in the heart of Newcastle’s defence.

Given their numerous absentees, most of Newcastle’s side picks itself at the moment.

Oleksandr Zinchenko has struggled this season and could drop out for the Japan international Takehiro Tomiyasu.

Odegaard has been playing through an injury, but is expected to captain the side on Saturday.

Expected starting XI’s
Newcastle United (4-3-3): Pope; Trippier, Lascelles, Schar, Burn; Guimaraes, Joelinton, Longstaff; Almiron, Wilson, Gordon
Arsenal (4-3-3): Raya; White, Gabriel, Saliba, Tomiyasu; Rice, Jorginho, Odegaard; Saka, Nketiah, Martinelli


Result: Arsenal
Newcastle have a lengthy injury list and I just fancy an away win here
