Newcastle take on the visitors Arsenal in the round 37 match of English Premier League. The match will be played on Monday, May 16th at St. James’ Park (Newcastle).
Newcastle’s transformation took place closer to February, when it was possible to recruit a lot of solid footballers in the transfer window, and Eddie Howe, invited by new investors, finally set up the game of black and white. Already by the spring it turned out to escape from the relegation zone. And finally, any questions were removed by the April segment of 4 victories in a row. Then the ex-outsider successively defeated Wolverhampton, Leicester, Crystal Palace and Norwich, conceding only once in this segment … And after that, it seems that Newcastle completely relaxed, or perhaps just lost its shape. The Magpiesl struggled with Liverpool, but still missed the ball from Naby Keita. And a week ago there were absolutely weak-willed 0-5 on the Manchester City field.

In the North London derby, Arsenal lost to their neighbor and enemy, Tottenham. Already in the 21st minute, Spurs earned a penalty, which was converted by Kane, then Holding quickly received 2 yellows. As a result, already at the beginning of the 2nd half, Hotspurs scored a final devastating 3-0 in their favor. Even after that, Arteta’s wards remain ahead, by 1 point, and everything remains in their hands. The question is, in the few days that have passed since the failure on Thursday, did Mikel manage to figure out the reasons for the failure? And if his players will cope with the pressure – it is clear that they need to win both last meetings in the Premier League in order to return to the Champions League, regardless of the results of the competitor. Tottenham, by the way, has an easier schedule, he will play with Burnley and Norwich, and Arsenal, after the voyage to Newcastle, will take on the difficult Everton.
In the last 8 matches, Newcastle could only once keep a draw – and then in the cup. And all the same, Smith-Roe and Aubameyang scored in extra time. Newcastle are left without Lewis, Hayden and Frazier. Arsenal are playing without Thomas Partey and Tierney. Bookmakers do not believe that Newcastle will be able to cling to points in this match. Arsenal, on the other hand, only need a victory to prevent themselves from being overtaken and pushed out of the top 4 of the Premier League.
