SIMPSON CONFIDENT AHEAD OF ARSENAL CLASH
Newcastle United's Danny Simpson said that he is extremely confident that Newcastle United can achieve a positive result against Arsenal on Monday night.
Newcastle United will be travelling to the Emirates stadium for the Monday night match with Arsenal.
Arsenal are some of the inform teams in the Premier league right now, and they come into the match with three victories against top teams. Arsenal have won against Tottenham, Liverpool, and AC Milan in their last three matches. The latest in-play Premier League betting odds make Arsenal the favourites for the third position, which would have been almost unthinkable two months ago.
Arsenal were beaten Tottenham by a massive 10 points, but Arsene Wenger's men have now reduced the advantage Tottenham have to just four points. They will move to within one point of Tottenham with victory against Newcastle United, but Danny Simpson has said that the north-east club are more than capable of destroying the hopes of Arsenal on Monday.
Newcastle themselves come into the match on a good run of form, which has seen them continuously challenge for the top four positions alongside the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool. However, Alan Pardew will be aware of the fact that their top four ambitions will be realistically destroyed with a defeat against Arsenal on Monday night.
“We go there expecting a hard game. But we know with the squad we have got, we will be up for it and looking to get a result. There’s no reason why we can’t come away from the game with something. We’ve picked up two points at home from our last two games, so we haven’t lost and we are looking to kick on,” Danny Simpson said ahead of the match with Arsenal.
Newcastle United are five points behind Arsenal at this stage of the season, which is quite impressive.
