Manchester City vs Newcastle Prediction, Betting Tip & Match Preview

Manchester City - Newcastle prediction

The key match of Saturday's program of the round in the English Premier League will be played in the early afternoon at the Etihad.

Where local Manchester City take on a resurgent Newcastle.

The match has a direct bearing on both the battle for the title and the Champions League zone.

The Man City team has begun to recall its best days in recent times.

Returning to the landslide victories that have been their trademark in recent years.

On the other hand, Newcastle, who came very close to winning the League Cup, are still in with a chance of finishing in the Top 4.

And already in the first season, when the new owners took over.

Given the fact that Guardiola's players are a very strong host, I predict that they will win today.

And on First Half/Final Score.

Manchester City have recorded 10 wins in 12 home games this season in the Premier League.

Which one is more convincing. By scoring 3+ goals in 9 of them.

In addition, the Citizens have won 6 of the previous 7 head-to-head matches with Newcastle .

I will take the liberty of quoting you their results: 2-0, 5-0, 2-0, 4-3, 4-0, 5-0.

Chelsea vs Leeds Prediction, Betting Tip & Match Preview

Manchester City are chasing the leader

The race for the Premier League title is intensifying.

As reigning champions Manchester City keep the pressure on leaders Arsenal.

Following the Sky Blues' emphatic 4-1 away win against Bournemouth last weekend.

It was the Citizens' 200th away win in the Premier League era.

Inspired by the returning Phil Foden, Man City led 3-0 at half-time.

And added a fourth through a Chris Mepham own goal after the break.

Foden played a part in the Citizens' first two goals and scored the third himself.

Intercepting a bad ball in their own half from Bournemouth's Philip Billing.

Kevin De Bruyne remained on the bench after returning to the team from illness.

That success was followed by a 3-0 win, also away, in the FA Cup against Bristol City.

Thus, the squad led by Pep Guardiola remains in the hunt for the title.

Although their current tally of 55 points from 25 games is the lowest in all but one (2019/20) of their previous 5 Premier League campaigns.

And it was the only time in that period that the Sky Blues failed to win the title.

Man City ahead of record against Newcastle

Historical trends are likely to be the last thing on Pep Guardiola's mind.

As he prepares to face a team that Man City have won 13 consecutive home games in the league.

That means another win here would set the overall record for the longest home winning streak against a single opponent!

Newcastle lost a trophy

Newcastle faced Manchester United in the Carabao Cup final last weekend.

And their supporters were hoping they would lift their first trophy since 1969.

However, this did not happen. As the Red Devils won comfortably 2-0.

Despite dominating possession, Newcastle lacked sharpness in attack.

Which Man Yun showed in abundance.

The Newcastle goalkeeper is back

Nick Pope will return to Eddie Howe's squad for the game against Manchester City following his one-match ban.

And Newcastle's hopes of a positive result rest on his sure hands between the posts.

Newcastle are 4 points from the Top 4

Eddie Howe's men will now have to quickly readjust to the Premier League wave again.

They currently have a 4-point deficit to make up for in the Champions League zone.

The Magpies are winless in their last 3 games in England's top flight (0-2-1).

But they could look to their recent form away from home for inspiration.

As they are unbeaten in their previous 8 away league games (4-4-0).
