Arsenal vs. Newcastle United: Berbatov’s Prediction Points to Thrilling Encounter


Former Premier League striker Dimitir Berbatov has given his prediction on Arsenal vs Newcastle United face-off this weekend. The former Manchester United star believes that there will be a three-goal encounter between the two sides at Emirates Stadium.

The North London club currently sits on third place behind Liverpool and Man City with 55 points in 25 matches. They have a fancy chance to go top of the league if things go in their favour as Liverpool have played one game more than them and have a lead of five points. On the other hand, Newcastle are eighth with 37 points from 25 games.

Berbatov believes Arsenal will emerge victorious from the clash

The ex-Tottenham star prognosticates Arsenal to beat the Magpies on Sunday. Speaking to The Metro, he says,

“That’s a good, good game. It’s a big match for Arsenal, they’re on a great run and they will be full of confidence. Newcastle will want to get back to winning ways, and this would be a great way to do it, but I think the home team will have too much for them. So, I’ll go with Arsenal to win. Prediction 2-1.”

It is expected that Mikel Arteta’s side will extract all the three points from the game. Although Eddie Howe boasts a strong side in the league, but Arsenal will ease past them looking at their form. Though, both clubs are on an unbeaten streak from last few games. Arsenal have won their last five league fixtures while Newcastle have a streak of four victories. It is true that Arsenal lost 1-0 to FC Porto in Portugal in the UEFA Champions League in midweek, but their last three Premier League games saw them hammer Burnley and West Ham United and beat Liverpool.
