Arsenal v Newcastle Odds: Magpies against the odds to record first away win

Arsenal and Newcastle clash at the Emirates on Saturday evening in what promises to be a cracking encounter. In-form Arsenal head into the game on the back of three consecutive league wins, while the Toon were unfortunate to come away from Old Trafford empty handed following their thrilling 4-3 defeat to Premier League leaders Man Utd.

Three wins in a row means Arsenal are now three points adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham, who are level on 33 points with Everton and West Brom. In the unlikely scenario that all three teams lose, a win could propel the Gunenrs up into a Champions League spot. On home soil Arsene Wenger's men will be confident of claiming all three points, and Paddy Power have installed them as the 4/9 favourites to do just that. Meanwhile Newcastle can be backed at 13/2, with a draw available at 10/3.

Having led three times Newcastle will be devastated at leaving Old Trafford with not even a single point. The Magpies put on a fine performance but departed with nothing to show for their efforts due to a last-gasp Javier Hernandez winner. The defeat now leaves them struggling down in 15th and just five points above the relegation zone.

Newcastle have won just two of their last 13 matches in all competitions. They have struggled with injuries, which has led to a number of inconsistent performances. Alan Pardew’s men have been particularly poor on the road this season, failing to win any of their nine away games. Furthermore their leaky defence has conceded at least two goals in their last six games away from St James' Park. However, with Papiss Cissee and Demba Ba in attack they are always a threat the other end of the pitch, with Ba priced at 12/5 to score and Cisse at 16/5.

Mikel Arteta has scored three penalties in his last three league appearances and can be backed at 7/2 to do so again on Saturday, and an attractive 10/1 to open the scoring. Meanwhile the Spaniard is available at a tempting 7/2 to score in an Arsenal win. Elsewhere Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott are priced at 11/10 to get their names on the scoresheet, with Lukas Podolski at 13/10.

The Gunners are seeking their fourth successive league win and look a good bet at 21/10 to win with three or four total goals in the match. More specifically, the hosts are priced at 13/2 to win 2-1, while a 3-1 victory could be the way to go at 10/1 with PaddyPower.

The Magpies are still looking for their first away win of the season but they can take inspiration from their 1-0 victory at the Emirates back in 2010, with the visitors available at lengthy odds of 20/1 to conjure up a repeat result. A draw could be a safer bet at 10/3, with a 2-2 scoreline priced at 14/1.
