Lascelles quite happy at Newcastle, says Benitez

Michael Owen states his prediction for Newcastle v Arsenal Preview: Newcastle United v Arsenal
Lucia Summers | 15 April, 2018, 07:37

Benitez revealed Newcastle attempted to negotiate an option to buy the player as part of his loan move, but were unable to do so, and the Spaniard's keenness to strike a deal is understandable given the winger's performances to date.

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.

To put it into perspective, Newcastle's net spend on transfers this season was £11.5m, which was dwarfed by the sums spent by by their fellow promoted clubs, with Huddersfield spending £43.5m and Brighton £53.7m.

Benitez does at least have a near fully fit squad to choose from.

Rafa Benitez has won just seven of 23 matches with Arsenal, giving him his second worst points per match average (1.27) against any current Premier League side behind Chelsea.

"Everybody is expecting you to win the league or the cup or the Champions League, so I know it's not easy".

Arsenal managed to get past AC Milan in the Europa League round of 16 before a comfortable aggregate win over CSKA Moscow in the quarter-finals.

Aaron Ramsey received a deep cut during the game in Russian Federation, and while he soldiered on to complete the game, he could make way on Sunday. Definitely out are Santi Cazorla, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

That's a big price for a draw when you consider the form that Newcastle are in and the fact that Arsenal will be tired from their gruelling match in Moscow on Thursday night. Nine of their 26 wins against the Magpies in the division have been by a single goal, including the last three. A double chance for the Tyneside outfit is thus quoted at (1.70).

Over 2.5 goals is the favourite at [1.74], with unders at [2.22].

Granit Xhaka may return after missing Thursday's game through illness, while Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang comes back into the fold having been cup-tied. Predict the score for this match and the rest of this round's Premier League fixtures in our Predictor game. Danny Welbeck is also in-form. His last five games have seen the England global score five goals and he can be backed at [3.3] to find the net.
