Arsenal vs Newcastle Betting Tips - Premier League

The Saturday night Premier League fixture sees Newcastle United travel to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal at 8pm.

The Gunners have been in magnificent form in the league lately, so the Toon Army will trek south knowing that they have a tough mission on their hands.

  • Bukayo Saka first goalscorer
  • Over 3.5 goals
  • Arsenal to win 3-2

Sensational Saka Could Be Key

Despite Leandro Trossard’s impressive run of form in the Arsenal frontline, the best option for first goalscorer at the Emirates on Saturday evening is still the Gunners’ star man Bukayo Saka.

The England international opened the scoring in Arsenal's last home game – a 3-1 victory over Liverpool – and he has been deadly in front of goal, scoring twice in the 6-0 success at West Ham then netting another brace at Burnley.

Punters who back Saka to score first against Newcastle also have the comfort of knowing he has been Arsenal's first-choice penalty taker this term. If the Gunners are awarded a spot-kick, expect Saka to grab the ball.

Saka has scored in Arsenal's last four domestic games and the 22-year-old wizard could be the key to success for the Londoners on Saturday.


Goals Could Could Flow At The Emirates

There have been at least three goals in Arsenal's last six Premier League games and there is every reason to believe the streak will continue. In fact, going over 3.5 goals could be the most sensible betting strategy.

Arsenal are full of confidence going forward, having this year scored five goals against Crystal Palace, three against Liverpool, six at West Ham and five at Burnley. A gung-ho approach can be expected against Newcastle, as nothing less than three points will do for the title-chasing Gunners.

Arsenal lost 1-0 at Porto in the Champions League on Wednesday night and their European frustrations may be taken out on Newcastle. Liverpool and Man City are both ahead of Arsenal in the Premier League table, so three points are necessary.

Newcastle games have been full of goals lately. They have netted a total of 13 goals in their last five away games and could help bring up a high scoring total.


Newcastle May Finish Strong

The advantage Newcastle have over Arsenal is their lack of midweek action. Arsenal had to travel to Portugal to face Porto on Wednesday night, so have not had much recovery time.

Expect a strong start from Arsenal as they bid to maintain their domestic hot streak – the Gunners can be fancied to make early inroads – but Newcastle may grow into the game in the second half.

Newcastle have got goals in them – the Magpies' last eight games have seen them score 21 times – and they can trouble their hosts with fresher legs in the second half.

Arsenal to win 3-2 could be the best correct-score wager. Both sides should be going on the offensive and a cracking contest could be on the cards in north London.
