Arsenal to Progress Through to the Next Round
Arsenal made the trip to West Brom last time out and returned to London with a well-deserved 3pts. Full-back Tierney opened the scoring for the visitors in the 23rd-minute and 5-minutes later Saka made it 2-0. In the second half, Lacazette scored a brace in the space of 4-minutes to help wrap up a convincing 4-0 win for Arteta's men.
Newcastle played host to high-flying Leicester on Sunday and the pair went in level at the break goalless. The visitors broke the deadlock through Maddison just 10-minutes into the second forty-five and when Tielemans scored a second for the Foxes with just 18-minutes left on the clock, the hosts knew they were beaten. Andy Carroll scored a rare goal in the 82nd-minute to give the Magpies hope but the scoreline ended 2-1.
Arsenal are the clear form favourites heading into Saturday's FA Cup tie with Newcastle. The Gunners have won three, draw one and lost two of their last six matches in all competitions. Newcastle are without a win in their last six games, losing four times and drawing twice in what has been a miserable festive period for their fans.
Arsenal lead the head-to-head record between these two clubs with 70 wins, 34 draws and 59 defeats from the last 163 encounters between these two clubs. In recent seasons, Arsenal have had the better of Newcastle, picking up four wins from the duo's last four meetings in the Premier League. The Gunner's last three victories over Newcastle have each been accompanied by a clean sheet but only one of those games have produced over 2.5 goals.
Centre-back Gabriel is out of this weekend's FA Cup tie, while there are doubts over Reiss Nelson and Thomas Partey who are both very close to making their return to the first-team action following injuries.
Newcastle will be without Allan Saint-Maximin, Bryan Fraser and Isaac Hayden through injury, while Jamaal Lascelles and Jamal Lewis could both return from injury. Andy Carroll scored for the visitors last time out and might get the nod ahead of Joelinton this weekend.
Arsenal vs Newcastle Three Best Bets
We're expecting a win for the Gunners on Saturday as Arteta appears to have turned his side's form around in recent weeks. Arsenal enjoyed the festive period for the most part and will be looking to extend their good record against Newcastle this weekend. Steve Bruce's side can't buy a win right now and a trip to the Emirates in the FA Cup looks set to be another tough 90-minutes for the visitors.

To Win-to-Nil: Arsenal WTN
Arsenal have a good record against Newcastle, winning 70, drawing 34 and losing 59 of the pair's last 163 meetings in all competitions. The Gunners are chasing a fifth straight win over Newcastle this weekend and have kept clean sheets in each of their last three meetings with Steve Bruce's side. Arsenal have won their last three matches and have kept clean sheets in their last two fixtures, while Newcastle are without a win in their last six fixtures and have failed to score in three of their last four games.
Anytime Goalscorer: Alexandre Lacazette
Alexandre Lacazette hasn't been handed a whole lot of starting roles for Arsenal this season but with this game being in the FA Cup, there is a good chance the French international will start against Newcastle. Lacazette has scored in three of his last five games against Newcastle and would likely lead the line if he is chosen to start against the Toon Army.
Total Goals Under/Over: Under 2.5 Goals
Under 2.5 goals have been produced in two of the last three meetings between Arsenal and Newcastle. Saturday's guests have failed to score in their last three games against the Gunners. Under 2.5 goals have also been produced in four of Newcastle's last five outings in all competitions, with the visitors failing to score in three of those matches.
