Newcastle United vs Manchester City Match Preview & Team News
It is another disappointing season for the hosts, as they needed to fight for survival in the final rounds. Thanks to ten points won in the previous five matches, the Magpies managed to keep their heads above the water. Steve Bruce’s side has been excellent in the latest clash, getting back home from Leicester with a vast 4:2 victory. That one guarantees them a place in the Premier League in the next campaign. However, Newcastle United needs to improve a lot in order to be more successful next time around. Their defense has been among the leakiest in the competition, and they spilled too many points at St. James’ Park. A very challenging task is ahead of them, as they are about to host the newly crowned champions. Newcastle United cannot count on several players due to injuries, and the biggest setback will be the absence of the team’s top scorer, Callum Wilson.
Despite a 2:1 defeat against Chelsea last weekend, the Citizens secured their third title in the previous four seasons. They had a halftime lead against the Blues but allowed the opponents to turn around the result and take all three points at Etihad Stadium. Pep Guardiola’s side is ten points ahead of Manchester United, and the visitors can focus on preparation for the Champions League finals. Ilkay Gundogan and the lads have been the most productive team in the Premier League, while their defense is the hardest to beat. Manchester City is also the best away team in the competition, and they lost only once on the road during the campaign. The visitors celebrated in the last eleven outings, and they want to keep that run going.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Newcastle United will have selection troubles, and we would be very surprised if they picked up some points from this clash. Manchester City is a firm favorite in this clash, and we think the visitors will celebrate by at least two goals.
Goals Market Prediction
The hosts cannot count on their top scorer, while the Citizens have been excellent in the back this season. Newcastle United hasn’t scored against Manchester City on the previous three occasions, and we think the away side will keep the clean sheet once again.
