Newcastle United is showing signs of continuing to decline in terms of form. If the situation does not improve, the possibility of Chic Choe continuing to stumble against a very good Arsenal playing at home during the trip to Emirates in round 13 of the English Premier League is very large.
In the previous round, Arsenal had just lost to Liverpool with a score of 0-4. But it was a defeat that took place on the away field. It must be emphasized that the Gunners’ home record is extremely impressive. Statistics show that coach Mikel Arteta’s army has only lost 1 match at the Emirates home this season, the rest won 6 and drew 1. Their only defeat was against the top team Chelsea. In fact, it was a match where they were lucky not to have to lose a lot when the Blues created quite a few good chances, especially in the first half.
Going back to the past, the last 4 times they welcomed Newcastle United at home, Arsenal were unbeaten with 3 wins and 1 draw. The return of central midfielder Lokonga and striker Aubameyang will help the Gunners’ strength improve significantly. Don’t forget, the home team has a very powerful striker, Smith Rowe, who has 4 goals in the Premier League this season. Along with the speed of Bukayo Saka and the dexterity of Tomiyasu, coach Mikel Arteta’s army promises to bring discomfort to the visitors’ defense.
Newcastle United are going through a pretty bad season. With only 6 points after 12 rounds, Chich Choe is ranked 20th in the rankings, far behind the achievement of finishing in 12th place last season. In particular, the performances of the home team at St James’ Park in recent rounds have been very disappointing. Coach Eddie Howe’s team did not win in the last 12 rounds and received 6 defeats.
Notably, in the last 5 rounds, Newcastle United were powerless to find a way to keep their clean sheet. The fact that central defender Federico Fernandez is injured and does not play in this match will greatly affect the defense of the Northeast team. Since the beginning of the season until now, Federico Fernandez is considered by experts to be the most outstanding player in the away team’s squad.
