The Premier League is heating up by the week and this weekend is no different as Arsenal take on Newcastle United at the Emirates.
Arsenal returned to form after their dismal spell at the start of the season and went on an eight-game unbeaten run before being scuppered by Liverpool last weekend.
888 SPORT – Arsenal 6/1 Newcastle 40/1 (£5 Max Bet)*
The Gunners conceded as many goals in their 4-0 loss at Anfield as they had in their eight-game run combined.
Arsenal have won 16 of their last 17 Premier League games against Newcastle…
But Eddie Howe takes charge this weekend for just his second game as manager for the Magpies.
Since a 1-0 victory in November 2010, Newcastle have lost each of their last nine away league games against Arsenal, failing to score in each of the last five.
Arsenal have never lost a league home game against the side that started the day bottom of the table, winning the last eight in a row by an aggregate of 23-2.
Newcastle are the only side still without a win in the top four tiers of English league football this season.
No side have conceded more league goals than Newcastle this season with a tally of 27, but they have scored more goals than Arsenal so far.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been involved in nine goals in his eight appearances for Arsenal against Newcastle in all competitions (6 goals, 3 assists), scoring in each of his last five against the Magpies.
Newcastle manager Eddie Howe has taken just five points from 30 available in his Premier League meetings with Arsenal (W1 D2 L7), losing all five of his visits to the Emirates to face the Gunners.
Newcastle’s Allan Saint-Maximin has carried the ball further than any other player in the Premier League this season (2952 metres), while no player has created more chances following a ball carry than the Frenchman (13, level with Jack Grealish).
