Arsene Wenger's men have had to dig deep for wins recently against the black and white stripped side and this clash shouldn’t be an exception

Newcastle United welcome Arsenal to St. James Park for Sunday’s Premier League outing.

The Magpies are sky high at the moment after claiming a 2-1 win at Leicester City which sent them into top half of the log.

Rafael Benitez’s men are 11 points clear of danger and will fancy their chances of claiming a big win over their north London visitors at odds of (3.20) with NairaBet.

The Gunners were given a run for their Money in the Europa League when CSKA Moscow took a 2-0 lead in their last eight second leg tie and cut the aggregate deficit to 3-4.

However goals from Danny Welbeck and Aaron Ramsey saw Arsene Wenger’s men through 6-3 on aggregate and will face Atletico Madrid in the semis.

Arsenal have had the better of Newcastle down the years and are close favourites to win at odds of (2.25).

One has to go back to 2011 as the last time these sides played out a stalemate. Any chance of that happening on Tyneside is available at (3.65) with the same firm.

With the Magpies losing all their last 10 league meetings with Arsenal, Wenger’s charges look good to avoid losing at (1.40).

Nine of the Gunners 26 top-flight wins against Newcastle have ended 1-0 including the last three on the bounce. Punters who are bold can back that same scoreline at (8.75).

If that scoreline is to be considered, it means not many goals would be expected on Tyneside and two goals or less at (1.70) would certainly be rewarding.

What could read well for Benitez’s men is that Arsenal have lost each of their last four away league games. A double chance for the Tyneside outfit is thus quoted at (1.70).

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored in each of his last four Premier League games for the north Londoners and is (2.10) with NairaBet to score anytime.
