Arsenal vs Newcastle 16 December 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

Arsenal have a had a poor week where they failed to win two games which they should have gotten all three points from. This weekend they will be up against Newcastle United at home in another game where the Gunners will have the chance to get all three points from.

Newcastle United have a very poor defense and they have been conceding goals for fun lately. This is a team that is in trouble and if they don’t improve they could very easily find themselves in the relegation zone by the time that the January transfer window opens. A win in this game will not be an easy task for the Magpies since they are away from home and up against some tough opposition.

Arsenal, on the other hand, must win this game. There are talks of Arsenal no longer being relevant and I am sure that the club would want to silence many of the critics with a big win in this game. It is important to note that Arsenal are not playing badly and I think they have been quite unlucky not to win more games. This should be a good game for Arsenal since at home I think they will get the job done easily and get all three points.

As far as betting is concerned, we are not getting a very good price when it comes to betting on Arsenal to win so I suggest that we avoid that bet. The best bet is the over 2.5 goals which I think is a safe winner considering how poorly Newcastle have been defending.

 

Pick:
Over 2.5 goals
