Current Form of Newcastle United

In first three matches, they failed to win single one of them. In the first match drew against (2-2) Southampton in their backyard. They lost to Swansea 2-0 away, they managed to pick one point in Old Trafford against Manchester United. Though the last match against United was a confidence booster for them. So far, they have managed only 2 points from available 9. Steve McClaren and his team need to perform above the mark to win this game against the Gunners.

Current Form of Arsenal

Arsenal performance in the first three matches was far from convincing. Arsene Wenger himself admitted, this has been very ordinary and average start of the season. Lost their first home game against West Ham, then a hard fought victory against Crystal palace and lastly, a goalless draw against Liverpool in Emirates. Drought of goal, individual performance and lack of cutting edge are already concerning issue for Arsene Wenger and Co.

What The Managers Say

Arsene Wenger

“Maybe we are not firing on all cylinders at the moment. By definition, the finishing is a little bit cyclical and it goes in cycles.

Finishing qualities come and go and you do not always know why, but certainly at the moment we want it so much at home that we’re trying to force it a little bit.”
