The only sides to have suffered a solitary defeat in the Premier League so far this season meet in the latest test of Arsenal and Newcastle United’s title credentials when the Magpies visit Emirates Stadium on Tuesday.
Arsenal are seven points clear of Manchester City at the top of the table following their convincing 4-2 win at Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday, but they are likely to face a tougher evening against opponents whose head coach, Eddie Howe, has not played down their prospects of challenging the leaders at the end of the campaign.
Newcastle’s goalless draw at home to Leeds United brought their six-match winning run in the Premier League to an end while making it more than seven-and-a-half hours since they conceded a goal in all competitions.
Here’s how to watch the action live as Arsenal and Newcastle play their first Premier League matches of 2023.

Arsenal vs. Newcastle predicted lineups
Mikel Arteta’s injury picture is unchanged ahead of this game, with Eddie Nketiah, who scored against Brighton, likely to continue up front in the absence of the injured Gabriel Jesus.
Takehiro Tomiyasu returned from the bench at the Amex Stadium, but Emile Smith Rowe and Reiss Nelson remain out.
Arsenal predicted lineup (4-3-3): Ramsdale (GK) — White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko — Xhaka, Partey, Odegaard — Saka, Nketiah, Martinelli
Alexander Isak, Jonjo Shelvey, Matt Targett and Emil Krafth remain out for Newcastle.
In six games as an away manager at Arsenal, Howe has never won a point and has only seen his sides score a total of two goals. Callum Wilson was responsible for one of those during his time with Howe at Bournemouth, and the striker, who returned from injury as a substitute against Leeds, could start this time.
Newcastle predicted lineup (4-3-3): Pope (GK) – Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn – Longstaff, Guimaraes, Willock – Almiron, Wilson, Joelinton

Arsenal vs. Newcastle betting odds
As the only Premier League side with a perfect home record this season, Arsenal are odds-on to earn the victory they need to make it eight opening home wins at the start of the campaign for the first time in their history.
Newcastle have a wretched record in their 10 most recent opening matches of the calendar year, losing seven of them and winning only one – but Howe has transformed their ambitions and they have never been in a stronger position to end that run.
A bet on Gunners striker Eddie Nketiah to score may appeal. Nketiah has found the net on each of his last three home Premier League starts, scoring four goals across those games as part of a run of 11 in his last 11 starts at the Emirates in all competitions – and from only 16 shots on target.
