ARSENAL and Newcastle clash at the Emirates on Saturday lunchtime in the first game of the Premier League this weekend.
The Gunners will be hoping to get back on track after being thrashed 4-0 by Liverpool last weekend, putting an end to their ten match unbeaten run.
Sky Bet and Paddy Power both price an Arsenal win at 4/9, making them heavy favourites for the encounter.
Newcastle are rooted to the bottom of the table as things stand, five points from safety, and will be desperate to pick up their first victory of the season.
Betfair are offering 6/1 for Newcastle to pick up their first win of the season, in what will be Eddie Howe’s second match in charge of the Magpies.
The good run of form that Arsenal have been on in recent weeks has seen them climb up to fifth in the league, currently three points behind West Ham in fourth, who travel to Manchester City on Sunday.

Gunners captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is Arsenal’s top scorer this season with seven goals, and Paddy Power and Betfair are offering 16/5 for him to bag the first goal on Saturday.
Newcastle go into the match this weekend with a torrid record against their hosts, having lost 17 out of their last 18 games against Saturday’s opponents, without scoring a goal in any of the most previous six.
The Magpies haven’t won at Arsenal in 11 years, when an Andy Carroll header won all three points for the Toon back in 2010, in what’s been their only victory in the red half of north London since 2001, 21 games ago.
New Magpies boss Eddie Howe’s record at the Emirates is no better, having lost all five of his previous visits while in charge of Bournemouth.
