Analysis of Newcastle Vs Arsenal Betting Tips
Arsenal continues their ascending start to the season when they visit the St. James’ Park to take on Newcastle United. The visitors seem to have successfully put the past behind them after recording an uninspired loss against Manchester City on opening day, and going on to lose to Chelsea, albeit putting up an improved performance, the following week.
Since then, the Gunners have picked up all three points from the games against West Ham and Cardiff City. Fans of the London club would be hoping that they have their mojo back, as the Gunners came up with the win against the Hammers, after going down to a goal in the 25th minute. However, there could be some fear and uncertainty surrounding the credentials of the backline, as the Gunners, in the game against the Bluebirds, went up twice, but allowed the Bluebirds, each time, to get back into the game, to make the scores level.
Only a thunderous strike from Gunners’ forward, ex-Olympique Lyonnais frontman, Alexandre Lacazette, was able to create the divide between the two sides.
With the Gunners about to face a Newcastle side, who have let in the minimal amount of goals against Chelsea and Manchester City, albeit losing both times, they would be hoping that they can get their scoring boots on while keeping the Newcastle frontman away from the defence.
For Toon fans, this period of the season, they would be thinking, can’t end quickly enough. The Magpies have visited Chelsea and Manchester City, coming away with 2 – 1 loss in both outcomes. The hosts would feel unfortunate, as, on both occasions, they were successful in keeping the Wolves at bay, however, losing in Chelsea through an 87th own goal, while they successfully defended the attack from the League champions, after going down to a goal in the 8th minute.
The Magpies forged resolutely to get back into the game, with an Andre Yedlin goal in the 30th minute but had to watch helplessly as Blues’ fullback, Kyles Walker struck an unstoppable shot toward the left corner of the goal.
Toon’s boss, Rafael Benitez would be hoping the players and fans can put this period behind them, and steer their season on course, though in the Arsenal game, this might be an expectation too soon to hope for. However, he would be hoping that as the defensive setup working, his side riding the storm in the previous two games, only going down to fortuitous circumstances, while getting the goals in, Toon have a chance of causing an upset.
