Newcastle vs Manchester City Prediction
Newcastle United failed to keep their winning momentum going, in their midweek clash with Aston Villa, after the latter slotted two unanswered goals past them by the end of the ninety minutes.
Despite recording five shots on target in that matchup, the hosts were far less clinical in their efforts, subsequently making the trip back home empty-handed.
Be that as it may, the Magpies are still unbeaten in their last five games on home soil, and will be hoping to offer some resistance when they welcome the reigning champions this week.
Manchester City, on the other hand, will be making the trip to St. James Park on the back of a disappointing 1-1 draw against Shakhtar Donetsk at home. The visitors are currently sitting third in the Premier League, and are left with a nine deficit to scale to reach table-toppers, Liverpool.
Pep Guardiola’s men, nevertheless, should feel optimistic about securing the bragging rights this week. The guests have stumbled just twice on the road in their domestic campaign. One of which, to their defense, was against the Reds themselves.
Furthermore, Newcastle have just two wins to boast of at home so far. To pile on even more misery, the hosts have managed to take down City just once in their last ten meetings here.
With the away side finding the back of the net before the break in each of their previous five visits here as well, count on City to win both halves with ease.
Additionally, Pep Guardiola’s side have been really keen on racking up the goal-scoring charts. They have scored thirty-seven goals so far, which is seven more than any other side in the cluster.
Taking into account that sixteen of those thirty-seven have also come from their trips on the road, it is well within reason to expect over 2.5 goals on the final scoreboards in this one.
