In the 19th round of Premier League, Newcastle will host Arsenal. Both teams are playing very good so we can expect an interesting match.
Both teams have won three days ago on Boxing day. Newcastle smashed Stoke 5-1, while Arsenal was better in London’s derby against West Ham 1-3.
Newcastle play very good this season. Seems like they improved their form on upper level and lost only once in the last 9 matches in Premier League (7-1-1). They have already managed to beat two candidates for the title, Chelsea 2-0 at home and shaky Manchester Utd 0-1 away, so I believe they can make a positive result against Arsenal.
Ryan Taylor (0/0 d) is still injured, while Jonás Gutiérrez (1/0 m) is doubtful.
Arsenal looks like they are tired. They have serie of hard matches. In the last five matches in all competitions they won only once and it was a win against West Ham, one of the worst teams in Premier League this season.
Aaron Ramsey, Abou Diaby, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Yaya Sanogo are all injured, while Laurent Koscielny is doubtful and he will be probably replaced with Thomas Vermaelen, the player who is not in the great form.
I believe Newcastle could stay undefeated in this match.
