Arsenal vs Newcastle Stats

•    Arsenal have won 16 of their last 18 matches against Newcastle in all competitions.
•    Newcastle have seen both sides score in 10 of their 12 league games.
•    Both teams have scored in 3 of the last 4 Arsenal home games.

Betting Tip: Both Teams To Score

The Eddie Howe reign kicked off with an entertaining 3-3 draw with Brentford last week and it was a largely positive performance, especially going forward where the Magpies took the game to their opponents. Whether they’ll be as gung-ho away from home we are yet to know but it looks like they will be a threat in the final third.

The worry for the Toon Army is at the back. They’re yet to keep a clean sheet and even last season they conceded in 31 of 38 league games. Although Arsenal aren’t the most free-flowing attacking side they have improved generally and surely can score against such a poor defence.

Quotes of 4/9 on a home win looks way too short to get involved in so it’s the 31/40 on both teams to score which makes more appeal.

Betting Tip: Takehiro Tomiyasu to be carded

I’ll also take a punt on the 5/1 about Gunners right-back Takehiro Tomiyasu to be carded. The Japanese international will likely be up against the most fouled player for Newcastle in Allan Saint-Maximin, a player who looked bang on it last week.
