Arsenal and Newcastle United face off on Tuesday in an English Premier League showdown at Emirates Stadium. 

Arsenal currently sits in 1st place in the standings having picked up 43 points. It has been a special start to the season for this team, but anything less than winning the championship at this point would be a major disappointment. On Saturday, against Brighton, Arsenal were able to secure a 4-2 victory. Arsenal only had 32 percent of the possession, but they did have seven shots on target. Gabriel Jesus and Reiss Nelson are both still dealing with injuries and aren’t going to be able to go in this game. 

On the other side of this matchup is Newcastle United, who sits in 3rd place in the standings having picked up 34 points. On Saturday, Newcastle faced off against Leeds United and the game ended in a 0-0 draw. Newcastle had 59 percent of the possession and five shots on target. Alexander Isak, Jonjo Shelvey, Matt Targett, Emil Krafth, and Paul Dummett are all dealing with injuries, and they aren’t going to be able to go in this game. Callum Wilson came off the bench in the last game, and he could move back into the starting lineup in this game. 

These are two teams who have both elite attacks, and there is going to be no shortage of quality scoring chances here. I expect both teams to score plenty of goals scored, and this game is going to be very high scoring. I like the over 3.5 to cash, but I think the over 4.5 goals has some strong value.
