Arsenal vs Newcastle: Two big title contenders come face to face in the Emirates Stadium for the first time this season on January 3, 2023, at 8:45 p.m.
Arsenal, who have appeared as favorites to win the Premier League for the first time in 20 years, will want to extend the gap between the other top three clubs.
Arsenal ended the year 2022 with a win over Brighton and Hove Albion, while Newcastle lost two points at the hands of Leeds United after a goalless draw between the two teams.
Arsenal vs Newcastle Preview
No single team in the Premier League has lost the title after getting 43 points from 16 games. The Mikel Arteta young guns are starting to defy all odds by winning 14 matches.
Eddie Nketiah, Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli, and Martin Odegaard were all on target against Brighton.
Odegaard was named man of the match for his ability to create opportunities.
Brighton’s Mitoma and Evan Ferguson scored two goals in the second half, with Arsenal surviving a late scare from Brighton after Mitoma’s goal was ruled out for offside.
However, an excellent win against Brighton and Everton 1-1 draw against Manchester City made the Gunners sit comfortably on top of the table with a seven-point difference.
Arsenal are the only Premier League team with a 100% record at home; a win against Newcastle will extend the record and silence the doubters who do not think they are title contenders.
Only Nottingham Forest have failed to score at the Emirates Stadium against Arsenal.
However, there is no guarantee that Arsenal will keep a clean sheet against Newcastle.
Newcastle, on the other hand, have been impressive; they currently sit in third place on the Premier League table for the first time in many years. In their previous match against Leeds, Newcastle tended to be wasteful.
Leeds goalkeeper IIIan Mesiler’s spectacular save put an end to Newcastle’s unbeaten streak. Eddie Howe’s players had 59% of the ball and 16 shots on target.
A win over Leeds United would have put Newcastle on the same point as Premier League leaders Manchester City.
The Magpies are two points behind Manchester City and nine points adrift of Arsenal.
Liverpool is the only team to have beaten Newcastle since the beginning of the season, and they have also failed to lose their previous 12 matches.
The last outing ended in favor of Newcastle, whose win prevented Arsenal from going to the Champions League.
