Newcastle United v Arsenal | 15:00 29 August
Arsenal have started averagely like Chelsea this season, a form that puts them 9th presently on the league table after 3 matches. The season has just started, agreed but even manager Arsene Wenger admits the team isn’t finishing well.
In his words “Maybe we are not firing on all cylinders at the moment. By definition, finishing is a little bit cyclical and it goes in cycles, Our results away from home, with goalscoring opportunities and our finishing percentage, has been higher recently”
Newcastle on the other hand are still in search for a first season win but that might not be this weekend as they have only secured 1 win in their last 7 top flight matches this year (L4 D2 W1). But their last defensive performance against Man utd might give them a boost against Wenger’s side. Pappi Cisse will be playing his 100 game for Newcastle if he plays on Saturday and could make the difference.
This is a tough match to bet on but what can be certain is goals won’t flow so Under 2.5 goals is a good catch and a Double Chance on Arsenal since they have had the better of both sides fixtures.
