Arsenal vs Newcastle
In an effort to avoid experiencing the same fate as their bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal are embarking on a lengthy and challenging journey to St James' Park for a Premier League encounter with Newcastle United on Sunday afternoon.
In their respective previous games, both teams celebrated 3-1 victories. Newcastle United managed to overcome Southampton after trailing behind, while Mikel Arteta's team convincingly defeated Chelsea.
Callum Wilson made history by breaking Alan Shearer's record for the most Premier League goals scored by a Newcastle player in a single month. As a substitute player, he was introduced into the match against a Southampton team that was fighting to avoid relegation.
At half time, Stuart Armstrong had given the visitors the lead, shocking the St James' Park crowd.
However, Wilson was ready for action and quickly demonstrated his impressive goal-scoring skills by scoring two goals and causing an own goal by Theo Walcott. His contributions helped Newcastle complete an impressive comeback and secure a decisive victory.
Newcastle United has been exceptional in their attacking play, scoring at least twice in all of their previous eight wins. However, their defensive capabilities have not been as strong, with only one clean sheet in their last 15 matches in all competitions.
Despite this, Howe's squad has won their last four games at St James' Park and has only suffered two losses at home since January 2022, both against Liverpool. Arsenal fans may remember the outcome of their visit to Tyneside last year, and as a result, they will be well aware of the challenge that lies ahead on Sunday.
Manchester united vs West Ham
On Sunday evening, Manchester United and West Ham United will face off in a crucial Premier League match, as both teams require points for entirely different reasons.
Manchester United is currently in fourth place in the Premier League standings and is only four points ahead of fifth-placed Liverpool. In contrast, West Ham United is positioned in 15th place, with just a four-point cushion over the relegation zone.
West Ham seemed to have alleviated their relegation concerns after securing seven points from their three recent league games against Fulham, Arsenal, and Bournemouth from April 8 to April 23. However, they have since suffered three consecutive losses to Liverpool, Crystal Palace, and Manchester City, which have once again put them back in the relegation battle.
In their last four league games of the season, David Moyes's squad will face Manchester United (at home), Brentford (away), Leeds United (at home), and Leicester City (away). Moreover, they are also preparing for their Europa Conference League semi-final against AZ Alkmaar, with the first leg scheduled to take place next Thursday.
