In a bizarre turn of events Newcastle United will be taking the field against a red-hot Arsenal team without either for their two first-choice strikers. After cashing in on Andy Carroll for 35 million pounds. Shola Ameobi was suffered a fractured cheekbone in their last match.
Arsenal on the other hand are firing on all cylinders and are looking to keep touch with Man Utd who are currently 5 points clear of them. They have a couple of injury doubts as well, with the biggest being Walcott who is troubled with an ankle injury.
Newcastle United Betting preview
It’s hard to find any positives for Newcastle United in this match against Arsenal. They lost their last match against Fulham 1-0 and injured there only half decent strike in the process. They will go into this match with no-names Nile Ranger and Leon Best leading their “strike-force.”
In the 12 home games that Newcastle have played at home in the EPL 2010/11 season the are 4-4-4. Surprisingly they have had good results against top teams at home which is a positive. They beat Liverpool 3-1 and have had draws with both Spurs and Chelsea. 2 of their 4 wins at home have in their last 5 home matches, a slight improve on performance.
Arsenal Betting Preview
Arsenal just keep on scoring goals and winning. It really is that simple. There defense is also on the improve, but it’s their attack that’s winning them matches. They came from behind in their last start to beat Everton 2-1 and maintain their hunt for the top place in the Premiership.
Arsenal are now 7 games unbeaten and have won 7 of their last 9 matches. They travel to Newcastle with only 3 points being an option if they are to have seriously claims on the title.
Newcastle United vs Arsenal Best Bets and Prediction
Arsneal is the only team that can win here. It’s almost laughable that Newcastle don’t have a decent striker in their lineup and will sorely miss Andy Carroll. Arsenal will be piling on the pressure all match, and I don’t think Newcastle will be able to hold them out, especially late on. I definitely don’t expect them to score goals, none at all in fact.
Arsenal to win 3-0.
