Over/Under Total Goals (+2.5) -> Under at odds 2.40
Arsenal are aiming for a tenth successive home league win. Curiously, after last dropping Premier League (PL) home points (Nov 11 vs Wolves), Arsenal have won alternate home league games by a two-goal margin, while also winning the first half to-nil in the last four within that category.After beating Fulham on Jan 1, Arsenal have also alternated between home league wins to nil and home PL victories where they have conceded. If they were to stay true and win/concede here, Newcastle’s consolation goal would likely come beyond 60 minutes – where three of Arsenal’s last four home PL goals conceded have arrived.Remarkably, Newcastle travel here with the same record, goal difference and goals for/against as they did last season after 31 games! Speaking of last season, they lost 1-0 in the corresponding fixture, making it successive 1-0 defeats here for the ‘Magpies’ and a third loss to-nil in four visits.It also marked their fourth successive defeat here in which they have failed to score before the break. Newcastle’s away PL record against top-six teams this season also stands at: P5, L5, but four of those have come via just a single-goal margin, with three of those narrow defeats also seeing Newcastle score.Players to watch: Opponents have not replied to any of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s last three home goals for Arsenal, two of which have seen him end up as the last goalscorer.
