Newcastle vs Arsenal Match Analysis and Prediction

Newcastle United continue their survival battle in the Premier League this weekend when they take on out-of-form Arsenal. The match schedules for Sunday at St. James Park, with kickoff at 4 pm.

Arsenal has a major task ahead of them this week when they take on Villarreal in the Europa League second leg after a 2-1 loss earlier. On the other hand, Newcastle comes on the back of a surprising 1-1 draw to Liverpool.

A winless run of six games almost saw Newcastle start reliving relegation battles. However, after a series of unimpressive performance, Steve Bruce came under heavy scrutiny over his future at the camp.

However, a spirited fight within the camp saw the side take up eight points from their last eight matches. The resilience pushes the camp nine points off 18th placed Fulham with only five matches remaining.

Joe Willock has been a transformation for SteveBruce’s side in their gaining momentum. However, four goals and two last-minute winning ones against Tottenham and Liverpool put in question the future of the Arsenal loanee.

In contrast, it is worrying signs for the visitors after a first-leg defeat in the Europa League to Villarreal. It was a contentious match that saw both sides pick up red cards. However, Nicolas Pepe stepped up to give Mikel Arteta an important away goal. All attention remains at Emirates this Thursday.
