Venue: Etihad Stadium (Manchester).
Manchester City fans were disappointed to see their team drop 2 points to a newly promoted side Wolves large week. This week Pep Guardiola’s team may take out their anger on Newcastle as they clash at city if Manchester Stadium.
The reigning Champions hit 6 past Huddersfield in their first home game of the Premier League this season. Such result may be seen again as we are expecting another one-sided result.
Last week wasn’t favorable to the citizens as they went a goal down in the 57th minute. Aymeric Laporte salvaged a point for them with a powerful header from an Ilkay Gundogan set piece.
The Citizens hit the wood multiple times and had penalty appeals turned down twice in that game. They will hope for a better luck this time as they will also be celebrating their 10 years of Sheikh Mansour’s takeover.
Newcastle also where unfortunate last week as they lost 2-1 to the London Blues last weekend. Chelsea were awarded a controversial penalty and also benefited from a deflected own goal.
The Magpies lost by same score line in the opening game were less entertaining in their goalless draw against Cardiff. They have just 1 point so far and needs results but it will take more than a miracle to get the desired result at Manchester City.
