Arsenal now have their sights set on finishing in fourth. After Arsenal’s 4-1 win over Wigan on Tuesday they now need only to beat Newcastle on Sunday to secure Champions League football for yet another season.
Last weekend’s win for Newcastle already saw them safe in the Premier League for another season meaning that they do not need to dread relegation. Newcastle’s injury woes this season have been many and have not let up, meaning they are without nearly a full squad of players on their injury list. The players that they do have healthy haven’t really cut it this season.
Arsenal will have Olivier Giroud return, but may not even need him with how they played on Tuesday. They have shown the ability to become a more consistent team in the past couple of months. What really hurt them is the lack of consistency to start the season.
My prediction is an Arsenal win. Newcastle hasn’t shown anything lately to prove that they have a chance of winning. They may have won over the weekend, but that was against a poor, already relegated QPR team. It seems more likely that the only real prediction for this match is how many Arsenal win by.
Newcastle (L, L, W, L, D, L, D, W) 0 – 2 Arsenal (W, W, W, D, W, D, W, W)
