Arsenal V Newcastle: Match Preview, Team News And Betting Odds

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta will want a good response from his side after their disappointing 4-0 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield last time out.

The Gunners will be facing a Newcastle team who have still not won in the Premier League this campaign, but they did record an exciting 3-3 draw against Brentford last weekend, in the first official game under their new manager Eddie Howe.

In terms of team news, Folarin Balogun should be available following a muscular problem, but Grant Xhaka (knee) and Sead Kolasinac (ankle) remain on the treatment table.


The Magpies have two injury doubts with Fabian Schar not expected to feature due to a hamstring injury, while Paul Dummett is still recovering from a calf problem that has kept him out since the start of the season.

The bookmakers have made Arsenal the heavy favourites with Betway pricing them at 9/20 odds-on to win. A draw is 4/1 with Unibet while a Newcastle victory is currently 6/1 at Sky Bet.

Predicted Score – 2-1 to Arsenal
