Under 3.5 goals

Newcastle Utd vs Arsenal FC 02.05.2021

Newcastle have managed to unshackle themselves from the relegation dungeon in recent weeks. A run of four undefeated league games (2W, 2D) on what on paper looked like a daunting schedule pitting the likes of champions Liverpool and European football chasing teams like Spurs and West Ham has the Toon nation brimming with confidence ahead of the visit of Arsenal this Sunday.

Arsenal on the other hand have become a solid mid-table outfit this season much to the chagrin of their expectant fans. Their bitter 1-0 loss at home to Everton last Friday saw them drop a place down to 10th on the log which is where they have pretty much been for the better part of this season. They still have an outside chance to make European football this season but so many things would need to work in their favor for that to happen. They actually have a better shot at playing in Europe through the backdoor – by winning the Europa League!

We anticipate a close encounter here. Arsenal for all their troubles have more often than not upped their defence when they needed to. Neither team can afford a loss here as they could slide further down the log. We feel there will be a lot of emphasis on keeping things tight and we are therefore going with Under 3.5 goals as our tip here.
