Newcastle United v Arsenal Match Betting Preview, English Premiership, Sunday May 19th 2013.

Another dissapointing season for all Newcastle United fans as once again Alan Pardew fails to deliver a much sought after Champions League qualification and even with a victory in this game on sunday afternoon the highest finish they can obtain will only be 10th place which will also see them miss out on a Europa League spot, so it doesn’t look likely that the hosts will play a strong squad in this one, much to the annoyance of Tottenham fans.

Arsenal were emphatic winners midweek against a tired looking Wigan Athletic and that performance will certainly have everyone in the squad confident of winning this game which would secure their place in next season’s Champions League at the expense of arch rivals Tottenham Hotspur, so expect manager Arsene Wenger to pick his strongest lineup available for this one on sunday afternoon.

Newcastle United v Arsenal Team News

Newcastle United Team News : Tim Krul, Ryan Taylor, Moussa Sissoko and Shola Ameobi are all unavailable for the hosts as each player continues to recover from respective injuries. Papiss Cisse will lead the attack up front along with Yoan Gouffran with support in midfield coming from the likes of Ben Arfa and Cabaye.

Arsenal Team News : Striker Oliver Giroud is available again having now served his three match suspension and looks likely to return to the starting lineup for this one on sunday afternoon, but manager Arsene Wenger does have a major doubt over midfielder Mikel Arteta who will under take a late fitness test on his calf to see if he can be involved. If not then young Jack Wilshere looks likely to step in to provide cover before he under goes surgery on his ankle next week.

Newcastle United v Arsenal Match Betting Odds Market

Newcastle United are not given much chance of winning this game by the online bookmakers, despite having a decent record against Arsenal over the years at St James’ Park Stadium and Alan Pardew’s side can be backed at huge odds of 6.00 with Sky Bet to pull off a shock victory.

The Draw has happened the last two times in this fixture played at St James’ Park Stadium and could attract some interest from punters at odds of 4.50 with Bet365 currently available.

Arsenal know that a victory will secure them Champions League football next season and with their impressive performance midweek against Wigan Athletic their current odds of 1.57 with Betfred will probably see the big hitters lumping on the away win here.

Newcastle United v Arsenal Betting Predictions

An exciting game in store on sunday afternoon and one that will decide if Arsenal will be involved in Champions League action next season.

Arsene Wengers side don’t have a particularly good record in this fixture played at St James’ Park over the years but with Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew rumoured to pick a young and inexperienced side, Arsenal fans couldn’t of really asked for an easier game on the last day of the season.

However, if those rumours do turn out to be just speculation then Newcastle United will no doubt put up a decent fight in this game as with having had a very dissapointing season this game does at least provide the players with a chance to put on a show for their loyal fans and send them home happy with a victory.

The goal stats suggest at least a couple of goals to be scored and with both sides having been in excellent goal scoring form of late the goals market obviously makes plenty of appeal when looking for a betting opportunity on this game.
