Arsenal vs Newcastle United English Premier League Preview

Arsenal and Newcastle United are going to face each other for the second time within a week on Tuesday at the Emirates stadium. Having experienced a crushing defeat to Tottenham Hotspur, last week, Arsenal bounced back in front of the home crowd on Saturday projecting a 3-0 victory over struggling Newcastle Untied in the fourth round of FA Cup. With this victory, Arsenal eased into the next round of FA Cup.

Newcastle will obviously seek revenge of their 3- defeat to Arsenal on Tuesday’s premier league match. Newcastle has not been at their great form so far this season with only 27 points from 23 matches. On the other hand, Arsenal is going hand in hand with leader Manchester United. Though Manchester tops the league point table by goal difference, Arsenal is breathing on Manchester’s neck in English premier league.

For Newcastle Untied, second half has become a problem so far this season. They have been playing well in the first half, but their second half performance is making the difference. Newcastle United fans started to hope to see the good days of Newcastle under the newly appointed coach Kevin Keegan. However, Keegan could not bring any change in the performance of Newcastle Untied so far.

For Kevin Keegan, his first task now is to bring the best out of his players. The likes of Michael Owen are now in off from. However, it is, for sure, Keegan should be given some time to prove his worth. Any quick success from him would not be fair now.

Goal.com reported:

As the man himself keeps stressing, Keegan needs time to build a rejuvenated Newcastle, but harnessing the much under-utilised talents of those at his disposal is his immediate task. This is perhaps most applicable to Michael Owen, the most likely source of the team’s first goal under this new regime, although this may not be the game in which the England international is handed sufficient goalscoring chances.

Arsenal defense was not that much impressive in the last match. Except William Gallas, their consistent defenders were not strong against Newcastle United last weekend. So, if they can not be back in form against Newcastle Untied on Tuesday, then Arsenal might have to face problem in front of the home fans.

Emmanuel Adebayor has been in impressive form so far in this season with 18 goals from 28 matches. He has scored twice in their 3-0 demolition of Newcastle Untied. So, Newcastle United must have an eye on Emmanuel Adebayor in their league clash.

Newcastle manager Keegan is expected to bring on midfielder Joey Barton among the substitutes against Arsenal. He was also expected to be come back in the last match. However, it is not yet confirmed if Barton will be bought on the field for some time or not. Owen is also expected to bring back in form, which many Newcastle fans are now praying for.

It is always tough to predict anything regarding a match between the two teams like Arsenal and Newcastle Untied. If you look at the recent performance, statistics, you will realize that Arsenal is favorite in the match in the paper. However, Newcastle Untied has just played a match against Arsenal. So, Kevin Keegan side will try their best to knock down the mistakes they did in the FA Cup match and must have some special goals to achieve in the match against Arsenal. Though they are not in the FA Cup this season, they will have all their focus on premier league now. So, Newcastle United is expected to play inspirational football. For Arsenal, winning matches is the prerequisite of winning the title. If they want to continue their run towards the title, they can not afford any more slip off. I hope to see an exciting match at the Emirates stadium.
