Playing at home feels relaxed and nice for Newcastle United, but Arsenal are fully determined and able to get all three points. What happens?

Insights:
  • Newcastle United have played more matches over 2,5 goals home than away.
  • Arsenal have played more matches over 2,5 goals away than home.

Newcastle United can neither be promoted or relegated from Premier League. Arsenal are still fighting for top positions and their benefits.

The visiting Arsenal played their last game only four days ago, a Premier League match. That game, against Tottenham Hotspur, was also an away game. It's a tiring schedule for Arsenal.

Newcastle United form and stats

Newcastle United have played 18 Premier League games at their own stadium so far this season, resulting in 7-6-5 (wins-draws-losses).

Stress levels are on the rise for Newcastle United's attacking players as they have now played 221 minutes without scoring in a league game. Guimaraes was their last goal scorer.

The followers are hoping that Newcastle United will strike back in this fixture, putting things right after the 0-5 away loss in the match against Manchester City (placed 1st). Newcastle were outplayed and humiliated in their previous game, as mentioned in the paragraph above. They will need to reinstall their confidence before this one. Saint-Maximin, a striker, was the champion player for the side in that match, and was presented with a rating of 7.65 (out of 10). Saint-Maximin hit two key passes and dribled past the opponent 5 of 6 times.

Before that game, the home loss against Liverpool with the scoreline 0-1.

Newcastle United are certainly not overdoing their scoring at home in league matches, having created 24 goals in 18 games. With more than 1,5 conceded goals on average, the Newcastle defense is not exactly impregnable. 27 goals conceded from 18 games. You can find more goal stats on the Statistics tab above. There's been improvement defensively lately, as only 2 of these goals has been conceded in their last three home matches.
