Arsenal vs Newcastle United Live

Newcastle vs. Arsenal: Team News, Preview, Live Stream, TV InfoArsenal can win four consecutive Premier League matches for the first time this season if they beat Newcastle United at St James’ Park on Sunday, with the Gunners also chasing their 11th successive victory over the Magpies.

Arsene Wenger’s side haven’t lost to Newcastle home or away since November 2010, but the opportunity to break further into the top half of the Premier League could be the motivation the north-east side need to alter their recent record.

The Gunners’ chances of a top-four finish are all but over as they sit sixth, 13 points off Tottenham Hotspur in fourth, but they’ll be wary Burnley are only five points below and can take advantage of any slip-up.

Newcastle can take heart knowing that while Arsenal have won their last three league games in a row, those results came at the Emirates Stadium, and the north Londoners haven’t won an away game in the league in 2018.

Read on for a preview of Sunday’s clash as the Magpies look to take some points against Arsenal, complete with live-stream information and a match preview.

Date: Sunday, April 15

Time: 1:30 p.m. BST/8:30 a.m. ET

Venue: St James’ Park, Newcastle

Live Stream: Sky Go app (UK), NBC Live Extra (U.S.)

TV Info: Sky Sports Premier League (UK), NBCSN (U.S.)

Team News

Arsenal recently confirmed winger Henrikh Mkhitaryan will likely miss the rest of the season after suffering medial ligament damage, ruling him out of Sunday’s domestic fixture, per the Daily Mail‘s Sami Mokbel.

Wenger still holds out hope the Armenian could have an impact this term—largely with a potential UEFA Europa League final in mind—per injury analyst Ben Dinnery:

Alex Iwobi and Danny Welbeck—who scored twice in Sunday’s 3-2 win over Southampton—could be retained alongside Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang in attack as a result.

Petr Cech will also be relied upon to shoulder the burden between goals as Colombian David Ospina continues his recovery from injury.

ESPN FC’s Mattias Karen provided quotes from the Gunners chief on the situation:

More positively for Arsenal, they will have midfielder Mohamed Elneny available for selection after his red card against Southampton was overturned by the Football Association, per Sky Sports.

Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez has close to a clean bill of health, with Jesus Gamez—who has been absent since November with an ankle injury—his only absentee.

Preview

Damage prevention is Arsenal’s chief goal at this stage of the campaign and has been for some time.

Newcastle have lost only once in their last eight and count the likes of Manchester United, Leicester City and Southampton among their more recent conquests, leaving BBC 5 live Sport pundit Ian Wright impressed:

They have won their last three matches on the trot and are unbeaten at home in their last seven games, raising the question as to whether Arsenal’s miserable away record can stand up to the task.

There is reason to believe the Gunners could be distracted as far as the league is concerned, too, after Wenger explained their UEFA Europa League priority before Thursday’s clash with CSKA Moscow, via Goal:

Benitez has got this Newcastle side functioning like a well-oiled machine, with Jonjo Shelvey and Ayoze Perez sparkling in midfield and attack, respectively. Star defender and captain Jamaal Lascelles has also stepped up his game.

With no injuries to burden them at St James’, there’s no reason to think Newcastle can’t spring a surprise against the Gunners, who are in desperate need of some form away from the Emirates.
