Will the 1-0 UCL defeat dent the Gunners’ 5-win, 21-goal haul run in the Premier League?

Arsenal will have less time to recover for the match-up ahead than their upcoming opponents. Mikel Arteta’s men were on a UEFA Champions League Round of 16 trip to face Portugal’s FC Porto. Unfortunately, the Gunners conceded the only goal of the match in the added time to go down 1-0 on aggregate before the second leg at home. Now they would like to recover and further add to their Premier League run of 5 wins that had them scoring 21 goals.

Newcastle United, on the other hand. weren’t active in any European competition midweek as their journey ended in the group stages. The last time the Magpies were active, they faced AFC Bournemouth in the league. The game ended as a 2-2 draw. Still, Eddie Howe’s side will be looking forward to this fixture as they were the ones who ended Arteta and Co’s 10-game unbeaten run early on this season in the English top tier.

Players to Watch

Bukayo Saka (Arsenal)
