The stats behind our Arsenal vs Newcastle predictions:

  • Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 12 home games against Newcastle (all comps), running up a 31-5 aggregate scoreline.
  • Bukayo Saka has scored six goals in his last four Premier League games.
  • The Gunners have faced just two shots on target across their last three Premier League games.

Arsenal to continue run against one of their favourite opponents

Arsenal have moved past their recent wobble to fire themselves back into the Premier League title race. The Gunners have won their first five league games for the first time in their history, with the most impressive coming 3-1 at home to Liverpool and, emphatically, 6-0 away at West Ham, their biggest-ever away win in the Premier League. Mikel Arteta’s men are third in the table, one point behind Manchester City and just five adrift of leaders Liverpool with a game in hand.

Now looking to make it six league wins in a row, after a shock 1-0 defeat to Porto in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie, they face a Newcastle side that have not scored a Premier League away goal against the Gunners since December 2014. Arsenal have gone unbeaten in their last 11 Premier League home games against the Toon Army, with last season’s goalless draw ending a 10-game winning run.

This season, Newcastle, have also struggled on the road, picking up just 11 points away from St. James’ Park. However, after five straight away defeats in the Premier League, Eddie Howe’s side have won the last two with victories at Villa Park and the City Ground. They currently sit in 8th, 11 points off the top four, but three consecutive away wins may be too much, especially at the Emirates.

Odds correct as of 19:30 on February 23

The Gunners are favourites having won all five of their Premier League games in 2024, while Newcastle have lost five of their last seven on the road. Mikel Arteta’s side are unbeaten in their last 11 Premier League home games against Newcastle, with last season’s goalless draw ending a 10-game winning run. Their last such defeat against the Magpies was in November 2010.

Opta Probability gives Arsenal a 54.7% chance of taking home all three points, while they give Newcastle 20.2% chance of ending the Gunners’ 100% start to 2024 in the league.

Newcastle have failed to score on each of their last eight visits to the Emirates Stadium (all competitions), while the Gunners have kept three clean sheets in their last five Premier League games and conceded just three shots on target across their last three league matches. Ayoze Pérez was the last Newcastle player to score an away Premier League goal against Arsenal (December 2014), with the Magpies failing to convert any of their 63 attempts on goal at the Emirates since.
