Newcastle vs Arsenal Premier League football match forecast

"Newcastle" will host "Arsenal" in one of the matches of the 34th round on May 2- we assessed the opponents' chances of success and prepared a forecast.

Newcastle United

At the finish line of the national championship, the "Magpies" were actively involved in the struggle for survival and in this regard they have noticeably succeeded. In the last round of the championship "Newcastle" drew away with "Liverpool" (1:1), extending the unbeaten streak to four matches in a row. During this period, Steve Bruce's charges ended the meeting with "Tottenham" (2:2) with a draw, and also beat "Burnley" (2:1) and "West Ham" (3:2).

Eight points scored significantly improved "Newcastle's" standings. The "Magpies" climbed to 16th place, already breaking away from the relegation zone by nine points. Steve Bruce's team practically guaranteed itself a residence permit, in the remaining five matches three points scored should be enough for a calm finish.

Midfielders Isaac Hayden, Rbyan Frbaser and Josebph Willock, defender Jamaal Lassels, goalkeeper Kabrl Darblow will miss the game due to injuries. Questionable Fabian Sher and Matt Ritchie.

Upcoming Predictions for Football


The London club has nothing to catch in the current championship. Before the upcoming match, "Arsenal" are in tenth place in the standings. Mikel Arteta's charges now have 46 points. The "Gunners" are seven points behind a potential seventh place.

Therefore, "Arsenal" are now making their main bets in the Europa League. The Londoners played their first semi-final away game with "Villarreal" and lost in it 1:2 in this European competition last Thursday. The return leg is already next week, and "Arsenal" will play with an eye to it.

"Arsenal" has no personnel losses.

All predictions for Football


  • "Newcastle" have not scored in seven of their last nine face-to-face league games.
  • The "Gunners" scored first in the last 15 head-to-head matches in the Premier League.
  • A first-half draw has been recorded in seven of the last nine face-to-face meetings in the Premier League.

Our Prediction

The match against "Villarreal" is much more important for "Arsenal" than the next encounter with "Newcastle". Therefore, the "Gunners" are unlikely to give all their best with the "Magpies" in a meeting. In addition, Arteta can give leaders a rest. It is important for "Newcastle" to secure their registration in advance. Therefore, in our opinion, the owners will at least not lose.

Our prediction is a win for "Newcastle" with a handicap (1.5) with the odds of 1.26 on 1xbet.
