Having made themselves hard to beat at St James' Park recently, Al Hain-Cole expects the Magpies to make life difficult for Arsene Wenger's men

Newcastle United will be aiming to put an end to their miserable run against Arsenal when the sides meet at St James’ Park in Sunday’s Premier League clash.

The Magpies have lost each of their last 10 encounters with this opposition, last avoiding defeat in a 0-0 draw way back in 2011.

Latest Odds

However, having won four and lost none of their last seven home games, they are available at 12/5 (3.40) with dabblebet to record a long-awaited victory this time out.

Arsene Wenger’s men booked their place in the semi-finals of the Europa League with a 2-2 draw away to CSKA Moscow on Thursday, and are 6/5 (2.20) favourites to remain in high spirits by coming out on top here.

That stalemate was a first in 18 fixtures for the guests, who are priced at 12/5 (3.40) to follow it up with another stalemate in this one.

Team News

Aside from long-term injury absentee Jesus Gamez, Rafa Benitez has the luxury of a full squad to choose from.

In contrast, the Gunners are missing David Ospina, Santi Cazorla, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan through injury, while Granit Xhaka missed the trip to Russia with an illness.

Despite their poor record against this opposition, Benitez’s team will be confident of holding their own after going seven games without defeat on home turf.

This impressive run is largely built on a strong backline that has conceded just five times in nine games in front of their own fans, keeping a clean sheet in each of the most recent three.

Having scored just 16 times in 15 league away matches this season and lost four in a row on the road, Arsenal certainly have their work cut out if they are to extend their winning streak against this opposition.

Predictions

Instead, odds of 19/20 (1.95) offer strong value on a resolute Newcastle outfit ensuring under 2.5 goals for their eighth home league game in nine, as well as a fourth encounter in a row between this pair.
