The main event of the Premier League on Saturday is a tantalizing match on Tyneside between Newcastle United and Arsenal, who are undefeated. While Eddie Howe‘s squad is beginning to be stretched as the Magpies strive to contend on numerous fronts, the Gunners are going to see a trip to St. James’ Park as one of the harshest exams of their title ambitions. So, the manager of Newcastle will be overjoyed that his team, which had undergone significant alteration, was able to defeat Manchester United during the EFL Cup on Wednesday at Old Trafford. West Ham United defeated the Gunners 3-1 in the fourth round to terminate their knockout run, while the Magpies easily defeated holders Manchester United 3-0 on Wednesday night.
Newcastle has nothing to fear from Arsenal after eliminating both Manchester clubs from the current season’s League Cup and crushing Paris Saint-Germain 4-1 during the Champions League. They have, however, traditionally suffered in this matchup, winning only 4 of the previous 45 meetings with the London heavyweights, which benefits the Gunners. With 26 goals scored in the first 10 rounds, Howe’s team enters the game not just being one of the Premier League’s best in-form teams but additionally as the most prolific offensive unit in the division.
As Mikel Arteta‘s team competes for Premier League and Champions League glory, many will undoubtedly argue that their premature exit from the cup is a blessing in disguise. The Gunners’ 5-0 annihilation of Sheffield United this past weekend guaranteed that they would stay unbeaten for 10 matches into the new top flight campaign, placing them 2nd in the standings, only beneath Spurs. Additionally, the Gunners defied expectations to defeat Newcastle 2-0 at St James’ Park just 6 months ago, and the Magpies’ perceived strategy methods at the Emirates resulted in a goalless tie. The Gunners’ two goals that they conceded on their travels, both of which arrived at Stamford Bridge the previous month, is the strongest defensive record of this type in the Premier League.
