Arsenal are back in action in the Premier League this weekend as they lock horns with Newcastle United at St. James' Park on Sunday. The Gunners have struggled this season and have a massive point to prove in this fixture.

Newcastle United are in 16th place in the Premier League standings at the moment and have not been at their best this season. The Magpies held Liverpool to a 1-1 draw in their previous game and will want to pull off a similar result in this match.

Arsenal have endured a difficult league campaign so far and currently find themselves in 10th place in the league table. The Gunners slumped to a 1-0 defeat against Everton last weekend and will want to bounce back in this game.

Newcastle United vs Arsenal Prediction

Arsenal have an important Europa League fixture against Villarreal next week and will rest some of their stars for this match. The Gunners have excellent players in their ranks and will need to find their feet in the Premier League.

Newcastle United remain in danger of relegation this season and cannot afford to suffer a streak of losses this month. Arsenal are the better team on paper, however, and should be able to win this game.

Prediction: Newcastle United 2-3 Arsenal
