One Growing Problem Arsenal Must Address Vs Newcastle To Avoid Disaster

Arsenal travel to Newcastle today knowing a win will firmly put them in a position to qualify for next year's champions league football with a single game left to end the season. The Gunners would even be all but assured of top 4 already had they just gotten a point from their arch-rivals Tottenham but instead, they miserably lost 3-0.

A trip to Newcastle looks to be tricky because the Magpies were in good form save for their 5-0 drubbing by Man City. In addition, Tottenham's 1-0 win over Burnley puts more pressure on Mikel Arteta's men to bag 3 points at St James's Park on Monday night. Will they? Well they ought to eliminate one issue that is growing.

The Gunners Ought to Eliminate this growing concern if they are to qualify For Next Years Champions League Football

As an Arsenal fan have you noticed it? I bet you have. Having been with a 100% record at defending corners this season, the Gunners have all of a sudden started conceding from them. First, it was against Southampton albeit not directly. And then against Leeds, we directly conceded from a corner kick when Diego Llorente ran unmarked and shot past Ramsdale. A few days later during the NLD, history repeated itself when Harry Kane stealthily ran past his marker Nketia and headed in at close range.

Therefore, going into the Newcastle game, the Magpies will be looking forward to capitalising on this weakness to dent the Gunners' champions league hopes if the issue is not addressed.
