Following a topsy-turvy start to the season, Man City must start racking up the wins if they’re to mount a challenge for the league this season. And there is no better way to start that than with a win against a relatively weaker Newcastle United side. 

Anything short of victory in this encounter would pile up the pressure on Guardiola, and this is one scenario the Spanish gaffer would be keen to avoid.

It is safe to say Newcastle have not enjoyed the very best of starts to the league season, but it could be so much worse, and the Magpies will be grateful for their current standing on the table. 

Regardless, Steve Bruce will be wary of his side getting sucked into a relegation battle at any point in the season, and will be looking to keep his side comfortable for as long as possible.

Manchester City vs Newcastle Team News

Man City battled to a hard-fought 0-1 win over a resilient Southampton side in their most recent league outing as their inconsistent side to the season continues. 

The Citizens took an early lead via a Raheem Sterling strike, and were able to withstand huge pressure from the Saints to secure a vital three points. 

That win was City’s first in three league matches, following two consecutive draws, and Pep Guardiola’s men are placed eight on the standings – albeit with a game in hand – with 23 points from their opening 13 fixtures. 

A hallmark of City’s season is their defensive solidity, and this is reflected in the fact that the Citizens have conceded just twice in the last nine fixtures. 

Man City are also in a decent bit of form, and are unbeaten in nine games across all competitions, with six of these fixtures ending in victories for Pep Guardiola’s side. City’s struggles this season has reflected on their home form, and they have won just three of their six home fixtures so far. 

Newcastle, like their hosts, have suffered an inconsistent start to the league campaign, and they struggled to a 1-1 draw at home to Fulham last time out in the Premier League. 

The Magpies were made to work hard for the point, and their quest certainly wasn’t made easy by falling behind to a Matt Ritchie own goal late in the first half. However, center forward, Callum Wilson, as he has so often done this season, bailed the Magpies out with a penalty midway through the second half.

That result ensured Newcastle remained 12th on the standing for another week, having collected 18 points from their opening 13 fixtures. 
The Magpies are on course for their best start to a league season since 2014/2015, but are also on the verge of their longest winless run of the domestic season – such has been the inconsistency.

Man City vs Newcastle Predictions

Man City are side on the up, and they certainly will fancy their chances against a Newcastle side that has struggled for form this season. That said, you can expect Pep Guardiola’s side to come out comfortable winners in this one, and do so with a respectable goal margin.

Given that the odds for an outright Manchester City win is relatively low, a better bet will be wagering on the Citizens to win this game, without conceding a single goal.
