Arsenal

I’ll go with’… Dimitar Berbatov has predicted who will win – Arsenal or Newcastle

Arsenal face Newcastle in the Premier League this weekend, and this could be a fantastic game.

The Gunners will come into this one as heavy favourites after a fantastic run of form in the Premier League, but a dodgy showing against Porto in midweek showed that Mikel Arteta’s side are indeed vulnerable.

Newcastle have been something of a bogey team for Arsenal as of late, and after a disappointing result in midweek for the Gunners, the Magpies could capitalise.

Speaking to The Metro, Dimitar Berbatov has had a go at predicting this game, and while Arsenal did lose against Porto, he expects the Gunners to get back to winning ways here.

Dimitar Berbatov tips Arsenal to win
The pundit shared his verdict on how this game will go.

“That’s a good, good game. It’s a big match for Arsenal, they’re on a great run and they will be full of confidence. Newcastle will want to get back to winning ways, and this would be a great way to do it, but I think the home team will have too much for them. So, I’ll go with Arsenal to win,” Berbatov said.

Tough to call
Berbatov is a brave man to predict this game.

On one hand, Arsenal have been fantastic in the Premier League recently, but a wobble in midweek partnered with their recent results against Newcastle make this one a tricky one to predict.

The Gunners need to win if they are to keep their title hopes alive, but the same can be said of Newcastle who still want to qualify for Europe next season.

This should be a cracking match regardless of the result.
