As the Premier League title race heats up, Arsenal has the opportunity to assert its dominance on Tuesday when it hosts Newcastle at the Emirates Stadium. With a seven point lead in the league table, a win for Arsenal would extend its lead to 10 points for at least 48 hours, as Manchester City does not play until Thursday. However, Newcastle will not be an easy opponent, as the Magpies have lost just once this year and are coming off a 1-1 draw with Leeds United.
Key players to watch in this match include Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard of Arsenal, who have both had standout seasons, and Nick Pope, Sven Botman, and Bruno Guimares of Newcastle. The Gunners will also look to their in-form center backs Gabriel Magalhaes and William Saliba to keep Newcastle at bay.
In terms of team news, Reiss Nelson, Emile Smith Rowe, and Gabriel Jesus are all out for Arsenal due to injuries, while Newcastle will be without Jonjo Shelvey, Alexander Isak, Matt Targett, Emil Krafth, and Paul Dummett.
Kickoff for this highly anticipated match is at 3pm ET, and it can be watched live on USA Network and online via panafricreporters.com.
Don’t miss the opportunity to see these two teams battle it out for a crucial win in the race for the Premier League title.
