Arsenal vs Newcastle Prediction and Betting Preview 16 Feb 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 4-0
Arsenal vs Newcastle PredictionEver since the departure of legendary manager Arsene Wenger from the Emirates, Arsenal have struggled to hit the heights they managed during the French gaffer’s era. The North London club have obviously not recovered from the loss of their long-term manager Wenger.
Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 26
Venue: Emirates Stadium (London)
Switching between managers over the past few years, Arsenal are still yet to find a perfect replacement for Arsene Wenger. However, there seems to be a certain good-feel surrounding the presence of Mikel Arteta at the club since his appointment.

The Gunners haven’t necessary risen the bar in terms of performances and results but have shown glimpses of promise at times. The frantic 2-2 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge earlier in the year has been the highlight of Arteta’s management so far.

Involved in midtable obscurity, Newcastle United will be looking to get one over downtrodden giants Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium this weekend, with the intent of finishing as high as possible on the standings.

Having lost just one of his opening nine matches as Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta is well on his way to winning around the club's supporters at a time when the Gunners are striving to make headway up the standings.

However, the Spaniard will be aware that the optimism at the Emirates Stadium will soon disappear if his side do not start to convert draws into victories in the very near future.

As it stands, there is an acceptance that the former midfielder requires time to stamp his authority on a squad which have under-performed for a number of years, and confidence will be taken from how the North Londoners were able to twice come from behind with 10 men to earn a draw at Chelsea towards the end of last month.

Nevertheless, dropping points at Crystal Palace and Burnley, as well as squandering a lead against Sheffield United, means that Arteta cannot afford to sit too comfortably in the Emirates dugout just yet.

With three points being regarded as a necessity this weekend, Arteta knows that he must find a way to improve his misfiring attack, one which has scored just 13 goals in 12 matches.

Steve Bruce has had to work hard in order to gain the support of a similarly demanding group of supporters, a target he is on his way to achieving with an eight-match unbeaten streak in all competitions.

The Magpies manager has spoken of placing a prolonged run in the FA Cup as one of his main ambitions for the rest of the campaign, a declaration which would have been warmly greeted by the St James' Park faithful.

That said, while Newcastle are only six points adrift of the Premier League's top six, there cannot be any complacency with the North-East outfit still just seven points above the relegation zone.

Arsenal vs Newcastle Predictions

While Newcastle could keep this match tight during the opening hour, we feel that Arsenal's class will eventually come through in the latter stages to record a win which will get them back in the hunt for the European places.
The home side have been far from convincing this season but with the home crowd available to cheer them on Sunday, Mikel Arteta’s men should have enough about themselves to roar to victory.
