That shows, the motivation of the home team in today’s match is not much.
In fact, the performance of the Northeastern team in recent times has not been good at all.

The team nicknamed Chich Choe did not win in the last home match, when they were defeated by a second-ranked team like Liverpool. Not to mention, this match the home team also lost midfielder Isaac Hayden due to injury.
With 66 points after 36 rounds, Arsenal is currently only 1 point behind the 5th ranked team, Tottenham. This is a gap that is not difficult to be leveled even though the tournament only has 2 more rounds to close. But as for the country still slapping, the Emirates Stadium team of course refused to surrender early. And 3 points against Newcastle United in this match will help them raise the dream of Top 4.
Compared to the home team, Arsenal’s performance is naturally better. Coach Mikel Arteta’s teachers and students won all 4 of the last 5 rounds. In the last 3 away matches, the Gunners are unbeaten in 2 matches. In addition, the Emirates Stadium team also has support from the past. Statistics show that the London team won 5 of the last 6 encounters with Newcastle United.
