Arsenal has won 15 of its last 16 matches against Newcastle only dropping a 2-1 decision at St. James’ Park in 2018, and hasn’t lost to the Magpies at the Emirates since Nov. 7, 2010.
Mikel Arteta’s Gunners are unbeaten in four after drawing Crystal Palace on Thursday, two days after Newcastle gave Sheffield United its first win of the season.
On top of history, Steve Bruce will also be contending with a new outlook on his Newcastle set-up after an expletive-laden vow to be more attack-minded following its pitiful performance versus the Blades.

Maybe Newcastle snaps to life and also benefits from two more days’ rest than their hosts but that history lesson above is a buzzkill to that theory, especially with Allan Saint-Maximin likely still out of the fold for the Magpies. Arsenal 3-0 Newcastle.
