With the international break coming to an end, the Premier League is back; Arsenal will be travelling to far north to take on Newcastle United on Saturday.
After a disastrous start to the season with back to back defeats to City and Chelsea, Arsenal have hit back with 2 successive league victories against West Ham and Cardiff City. New Arsenal manager Unai Emery will look to make it 3 in 3 when they make a very tricky trip to the North to play Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle United on Saturday.
Arsenal is finally settling in under their new boss and also looking to find their perfect first XI. With Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette both firing, Arsenal is finally looking to end their forward woes.
Newcastle on the contrary are still looking for their first win of the campaign. The Magpies will be playing the 4th top 6 side in 5 game weeks and have previously lost all 3 against Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester City. Their solitary point of the campaign so far came against Cardiff City, when Chelsea loanee Kennedy missed a penalty to share the spoils in Wales. It is needless to say that they will be facing an uphill task against The Gunners at home.
