Looking to cling on to the last Champions League spot, Arsenal are 3/10 via Ladbrokes to pile more misery on beleaguered Newcastle and as the Magpies head to North London having lost five in a row, it should be a straightforward evening for the Gunners.
Stan James quote them, when kicking off a goal in arrears, at 10/11 in the handicaps but it might be worth taking that further by backing the hosts at 2/1 (Paddy Power) when starting two goals behind.
Alan Pardew’s troops have struggled for goals of late, managing just two in their last seven outings and although Loic Remy’s return to fitness provides them with a boost in the attacking department, Arsenal still appeal at 5/4 with Skybet to prevail ‘to nil’.
A 3-0 home win subsequently catches the eye too, at 17/2 courtesy of BetVictor and the same firm post 11/2 against an opening goal from Lukas Podolski, who has struck four times in his last two outings. Boylesports chalk the German up at 11/8 to net at any stage.
