As part of the 13th round of the Premier League, Newcastle leaves for the exit to London Arsenal. For Eddie Howe, this will be the first game against a formidable opponent as head coach of Newcastle and possibly the first game he will be able to attend in person. The Arsenal vs Newcastle soccer match kicks off on November 27, 2021 at 15:30 Moscow time.
Arsenal are in fifth place in the Premier League standings with 20 points. Prior to the game against Liverpool, the Gunners had a 9-game unbeaten streak in all competitions. But Jurgen Klopp’s team exposed all the weaknesses of Mikel Arteta’s team. The head coach himself noted that the team broke down psychologically during the break when the score was 1: 0:
I think we imposed a good fight in the first half. Both teams had chances and we fought well. Losing 0: 1 by the break, you need to be calm, but our emotions were exactly the opposite. We were completely overwhelmed. So we lost. Everything else is a consequence of the frustration of having to recoup.
The main problem for Arsenal is that the pressure in big matches has not been resolved yet. However, she shouldn’t be in the upcoming game against Newcastle. On the positive side, players’ recovery from injuries stands out. Kieran Tierney could appear at the match against Newcastle, which will significantly strengthen the left flank of Arsenal.
The only bright spot in the match against Liverpool was Aaron Ramsdale. The goalkeeper, despite conceding 4 goals, played great. Without his game, the score could have reached indecent.
Newcastle played its first leg under new coach Eddie Howe. The Magpies changed the formation from 5-3-2 to a more aggressive 3-4-3 and it immediately worked. In terms of the game, Newcastle looked much more confident than in all previous matches. According to statistics, the magpies outplayed their opponents in all key indicators. But there is an important point to consider. Despite a great start to the season, Brentford is in dire condition with injuries. It is very difficult to evaluate the real game of forty for such an opponent.
Howe’s main achievement in such a short period of time can be considered Joelinton’s quality play. The Brazilian scored a goal and became the best player of the match, gaining 8.7 out of 10 points according to the WhoScored portal.
