FA Cup Third Round: Arsenal vs Newcastle Predictions and Betting Tips

There are some cracking FA Cup third round ties this weekend. Some are potential banana skins for Premier League clubs, such as Marine vs Tottenham Hotspur and some are riveting clashes like Aston Villa vs Liverpool on Friday night.

In this preview, we will have our Arsenal vs Newcastle predictions, as well as our best Arsenal vs Newcastle odds that we can provide to you.

This is a repeat of the 1998 final and this is a competition that Arsenal have farmed in recent seasons, including winning the FA Cup last season, beating Chelsea in the final.

The Gunners have suddenly hit an excellent vein of form and that will stand them in good stead against Newcastle. With this competition so dear to their hearts, don’t be surprised if Arsenal target this prize once again.

Newcastle have had a slow start to the season and have been suffering with injuries in recent weeks. They are a big club who will also have aspirations of lifting silverware. This could be a very intriguing game on Saturday evening!

Arsenal vs Newcastle Predictions

Mikel Arteta’s side had endured a really poor start to the season. Loss of form to star man Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang meant the Gunners were struggling for goals and defensively they were looking shaky.

Fast forward a few weeks and Arsenal look like the force of old. Some sparkling performances from their youngsters, combined with the likes of Aubameyang and Alex Lacazette, have given their season a new lease of life.

Newcastle have turned in some turgid performances in recent games and will have to find a spark if they are to challenge Arsenal and go through to the fourth round.

With Arsenal playing with a real swagger at the moment, it is hard to look past anything over than a comfortable victory for Arteta’s men. You can find all the latest odds at a football betting page!
