Newcastle vs Manchester City – Premier League :Manchester City visits Newcastle and naturally, they are the big favourites here.
If in normal conditions they would already be favoured, then with Newcastle playing poorly and in awful form, a victory from the Citizens is expected.
City and Liverpool have been the biggest targets to be shot down in the past 2 years because they have been clearly been the best two clubs in the Premier League.
This year, it doesn’t look like it will be any different and we will certainly have City and Liverpool fighting for the title once again, and I believe it will belong to the Reds again finally, after 30 years.
Manchester City are currently in 3rd place with 28 points conquered, sitting 1 point behind Leicester and already 9 points behind Liverpool.
Leicester’s moment of form shouldn’t last long and soon enough we will once again see City on that position chasing Liverpool.
Manchester City are without Aguero, Laporte, Sane and Zinchenko, which are all important absences but that are easily remedied by the deep quality roster of the Citizens.
On the side of Newcastle, Lascelles and Ritchie are absent for this match, with the team currently sitting in 14th place of the league table making a poor campaign and probably trying to grab a single point form this match, something that I honestly don’t believe will happen.
Newcastle at home hasn’t been doing that poorly and they are actually coming off 5 unbeaten matches, winning 2 of them and not conceding more than 1 goal in any of them.
However, they still haven’t faced neither Liverpool nor Manchester City this year at home, and when they’ve played away from home at Anfield, they’ve lost by 3-1.
I don’t believe that Newcastle have the strength right now, after a 2-0 defeat against Aston Villa, to stop the offensive momentum of this City that is very motivated to reach the top and can’t afford to drop any more points on this race against Liverpool.

Newcastle vs Manchester City – Betting Tips: :
If we exclude the loss against Liverpool on the last round of the Premier League and the draw against Atalanta in the Champions League, this City was coming off 9 away matches where they had scored at least 3 goals in 7 of them. On the other 2, they’ve scored 2 goals.
My bet for this match will be for them to already be in the lead at half-time and then at the end because they have been scoring a lot of goals away from home, being the best attack in the league, and they are facing a Newcastle that is able to withstand the result against less attacking teams due to their boring football but that against opposition with this potential shouldn’t stand a chance to hold on for too long.
