Arsenal will visit St James’ Park on May 16 to try and take down Newcastle with hopes to extend their streak to 5 games and secure themselves a spot in the top 4. They come into this match with a lot of confidence as they recently won against West Ham twice and completely dominated Chelsea.
On some occasions, a 4th-place team playing against a team like Newcastle might not feel the need to overpower their opponent, but in this case, Arsenal needs to get every single win possible, as Tottenham is still trying to knock them down from the top 4. This makes a very tough situation for Newcastle as they haven’t been finding wins recently.
They had to play against the top 2 teams in a row, Man City and Liverpool, and although this game might not have a lot of impact on them, they can still get a top-10 finish this season. Before having to play against Liverpool, Howe’s team had a decent 4-game win streak, so they know they are capable of doing some damage to Arsenal in the standings.
The last time these two teams played against each other, it was Newcastle that was visiting Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium. The game didn’t go well at all for Howe’s men as they weren’t able to penetrate Arsenal’s defense. Arsenal started slow but they scored 2 goals after the break and Newcastle never had a chance at coming back from their deficit.
Before their match against Tottenham, Arsenal’s manager Mikel Arteta said the following: “When you have the opportunity to achieve one of your objectives in the season, you just cannot wait to play the game because this is a job, and the work you have done throughout the season to try to earn it.” They come fully confident because they know they can reach their objective, which is a top-4 finish, and they won’t go easy on anyone, and that includes Newcastle.
