Why you should back Arsenal 

Martin Odegaard is having the best season of his career. The 24-year-old midfielder from Norway already has seven goals and five assists in 15 appearances this season. His previous career highs were nine and 12, respectively, in 35 matches with Vitesse in 2018-19. His five assists is tied for the third most in the Premier League.

In addition, the Gunners have been dominant at home this season. Arsenal have won all seven of their home matches by a combined score of 22-8. With a victory on Tuesday, the club would win its first eight home matches in a top-flight season for the first time in club history.

Why you should back Newcastle

The Magpies have arguably the best defense in the league. Led by 6-foot-3 center back Sven Botman, Newcastle have allowed just 11 goals in 17 matches, which is the fewest in the EPL and three fewer than Arsenal. In the 15 matches in which Botman has appeared, Newcastle have given up just eight goals.

In addition, the club is in terrific form heading into Tuesday’s clash. Since a 2-1 loss at Liverpool on Aug. 31, Newcastle have eight wins and four draws against zero defeats. The 12-match unbeaten streak is the club’s longest EPL unbeaten run since going 14 matches without defeat in 2011.
