Prediction published on November 24, 2021 at 8:30 PM - Modified on November 25, 2021 at 4:37 PM
Arsenal’s race to the top four suffered a hitch in their last game, and the Gunners will be out to restore normalcy when they host Newcastle United in the 13th round of matches in the Premier League. Arsenal are fifth in the league standings with 20 points while Newcastle United are bottom with six points. The hosts are coming from a 4-0 away loss to Liverpool, breaking their 10-game unbeaten run. This defeat was the first time in five games that Arsenal failed to score and the first time in four that they conceded. The hosts have a fine run at home; this season they have only lost to league leaders Chelsea there. Going to this game they are unbeaten in seven straight games there. Three of Arsenal’s last five league games have produced over 2.5 goals and the same has been the case in their home matches in the league as well.
This is not a game Newcastle really look forward to; they have seven straight losses to Arsenal. In their last 20 meetings with the Gunners, they’ve won just once and with that record, this game comes at a wrong moment for Newcastle. They are the only side yet to win a game in the league this season and this is the run that has left the team bottom of the standings. This season, Newcastle have played 13 matches, and won none; they have six losses in that run. Going into this game, they drew 3-3 with Brentford, which was a good warm up ahead of this game. Three of Newcastle’s last five matches have produced over 2.5 goals, and they have failed to score in just one of the five matches. In 15 away league matches, Newcastle United have managed just three clean sheets.
