Newcastle Loosen the Noose
A run of 8 points from 4 games has dramatically improved the mood on Tyneside, and surely kept them up. Wilson and Saint-Maximim could enjoy bullying an Arsenal backline trying to keep their powder dry for Villarreal.
Newcastle Utd look all but safe for another year but don’t expect their momentum to stop dead just because the pressure has eased. The Toon Army are worth a look to win with both teams to score at best odds of 11/2 with Bet365.
This looks like a golden moment to face Arsenal, sandwiched between the only matches that matter for the Londoners. The Europa League semi-final is finely poised with the Gunners trailing 2-1 as they return home - it’s their only route back into Europe.
Steve Bruce doesn’t get given much credit when things are on the up but he’ll be delighted to have Callum Wilson ready to start alongside Saint-Maximin on Sunday. One clean sheet in 20 home league games suggest they’ll need more than 1 goal, but with those two up front, against distracted opponents, it can happen.
Odds correct at time of publishing: 18:18 1st May, 2021 but subject to change
