Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Expect Newcastle United’s woes to continue in this game, now that Unai Emery has had time to settle in and get his team gelling Arsenal, who should have too much firepower for the Magpies. The Gunners are 8/13 with BetBright to score the first goal of the game, and that is probably the best of the free football betting tips for this match.

3 It's a long shot, but…

The under-fire Mesut Ozil is 17/2 with bet365 to score the first goal of the game. Ozil has two goals in three games against the Magpies and, after quitting the German national team, has had the last two weeks to concentrate on winning over his new manager.

One to Watch: Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang

The 29-year-old is a goal machine just waiting to explode in the Premier League and now that he has had a full season to adjust to life in England, we should see the very best of him. Aubameyang has scored 10 times in just 12 starts for the Gunners since joining in January last season and found the back of the net 98 times in 144 appearances for Borussia Dortmund over the last five years. He is 15/4 with BetBright to score the first goal of this game.

Newcastle United vs Arsenal Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will the Newcastle faithful be treated to another 4-4 against Arsenal?

Newcastle United have started the new Premier League season poorly, sitting in 18th with just one point, which came in a 0-0 draw at newly-promoted Cardiff City. Their last outing saw them go down 2-1 to champions Manchester City, which followed narrow losses to both Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur. Something worth pointing out in this English Premier League preview is the lack of firepower in Rafa Benitez’s side, who have scored just three times so far this season.

Arsenal’s last game was a 3-2 win at Cardiff, which came off the back of a 3-1 home win against local rivals West Ham United. The Gunners had lost their opening two games to City and Chelsea respectively and the pressure was beginning to mount on new manager Unai Emery. 

Newcastle are 10/3 with bet365 to win the game, and they beat Arsenal 2-1 at home last season. It is 14/1 with bet365 for the Magpies to win this encounter by a similar scoreline and, that is a tempting offer for anyone looking to back Benitez’s men in these English Premier League predictions.

Arsenal are 5/6 to take the three points back down to London with them and had won all 10 of their previous meetings with the Toon before last season’s defeat. An Arsenal win by 3-1 is 14/1 with bet365, and that is not a bad price for anyone looking to make football score predictions. 

The draw is 5/2 also with bet365 and the last time there was a draw between these sides was a 0-0 at St James’ Park back in 2011. Another stalemate in this one has odds of 12/1 with bet365, and that is a hefty price for anyone looking to make football predictions for today. 

Newcastle’s Spanish striker Joselu has scored two of his side’s three goals in 2017-18 and is 7/1 with BetBright to score the opening goal of the game. 

Alexandre Lacazette, who scored in the 2-1 loss to Newcastle last season, is 9/2 with BetBright to score the first goal of the match, and that is a decent price for anyone looking to make football score predictions here. 

Arsenal’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan is 21/10 with BetBright to score anytime and is a real contender for anyone looking for football betting tips for the weekend. 

Predicted Score: Newcastle United 0 - 1 Arsenal
