Michael Owen states his prediction for Newcastle v Arsenal

Jamaal Lascelles of Newcastle United celebrates after he scores the winning goal during the Premier League match between Newcastle United and Stoke City at St. James Park on September 16

"Newcastle will be well aware that they have lost their last 10 Premier League games against the Gunners but I think they will buck that trend at St James's Park on Sunday". He'd like nothing more to combine the two at Newcastle, and after giving his tenure every chance to develop on Tyneside, he is finally reaping the rewards. All things considered, though, there may be an opportunity for the hosts to cause an upset.

Wenger is likely to make several changes given the amount of travelling his squad have done in recent times.

According to ESPN, Arsenal want the Brazilian youngster, while The Northern Echo has credited Tottenham Hotspur with interested in the 22-year-old, who cost Chelsea £6 million in transfer fees when they signed him from Fluminense in the summer of 2015, as reported by The Independent. Despite the highly-rated Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang being available to play, the 27-year-old England worldwide may be the first name on Arsene Wenger's team sheet to take on the Magpies. Given that he has been used sparingly in the league of late, that freaky statistic may yet continue; Newcastle will be confident if that is the case, while being fully aware that, on their day, Arsenal can run riot. With Benitez at the helm and the right backing in place, there is no telling of their potential, but their first and only focus will be stretching their winning run on Sunday.

Magpies boss Rafa Benitez is a big fan and repeatedly wanted to not only bring him in but strike a loan deal that included a buy-option.

Manchester City takes EPL title battle to Spurs
Guardiola has never lost four in a row as manager but he faces a hard test this weekend with a trip to Wembley to face Tottenham . City go into this off the back of three consecutive defeats and appearing vulnerable for the first time under Guardiola.

Arsenal would have had Mohamed Elneny suspended for this game following his red card against Southampton although the decision has since been overturned.

The Magpies are unbeaten in their last six Premier League games and Newcastle will take on an Arsenal side that have only won three of their 14 away games this term.

The Gunners have won their last six games in all competitions to alleviate some of the pressure on their manager Arsene Wenger.

Rafael Benitez has called on his Newcastle players to deliver the same performance they did against Manchester United to see off Arsenal and ease themselves past the 40-point mark. Whoever starts for them will have the ability to cause problems, too.
