Manchester City v Newcastle Premier League Preview, 20th January 5.30pm
How will the Citizens respond to having lost their first league game of the season? The Citizens were stopped in a 4-3 defeat at Anfield against Liverpool last Sunday. That won’t likely affect the destination of this season’s Premier League title. City gets back to home soil where they face a Newcastle side who may well feel the wrath of Pep Guardiola’s men. Manchester City are 1/12 at bet365 for the win, with the draw at 10/1 and Newcastle at 20/1* (Betting Odds taken on January 15th, 2018 at 3:30 a.m.)
Manchester City News and Form
So Manchester City’s unbeaten form has ended in the Premier League this season but there is a decent chance that they will bounce back immediately to winning ways. After their 4-3 loss at Liverpool in one of the games of the season, City return home where they have posted a W10 D1 record for the season, winning their last ten there. The Citizens have scored at least two goals in each of their ten home wins this season and in total, they have netted 39 goals in their 11 home games. So they alone can take this game over 2.5 goals. At the back, they have conceded just the eight goals this season at the Etihad in the top flight which is excellent from them. The Citizens have been winning at half time in eight of their home games this season so a Man City/Man City half-time/ full-time wager at Bet365 will have some immediate appeal and you would imagine that they will want to come out strongly and shake off that loss against Liverpool. Sergio Aguero is the bet365 first goalscorer favourite at 2/1* (Betting Odds took on January 15th, 2018 at 8:08 p.m.). The shortest-priced option in the correct score market is a Manchester City 2-0.
Newcastle News and Form
The Magpies have been scraping together points recently with a W2 D2 L1 record in their last five league games. They have been much-needed points too to keep their heads above the relegation zone. They are still struggling badly for offensive power and they have returned just the two goals in their last four league games in total. But as a positive, they have also conceded just the two goals in that sequence as well. How will they approach this game because they tried to defend their way to a point at home against City just after Christmas and this is going to be an infinitely more difficult task on the road for them? Away from St James’ Park, this season in the Premier League Newcastle have gone W3 D2 L6 but they have won their last two on the road, beating West Ham and Stoke back to back by one goal margins. Before that, they had collected just one point in five road games. Newcastle have scored an average of exactly one goal per game on their top-flight travels this term and of the goals, they have scored away from home, 64% of them have been in the second half of matches. Their most frequent away scoreline this season have been 1-0 losses which has happened four times. Eight Of the twelve top-flight defeats they have suffered this season have been by a one-goal margin only.
Manchester City v Newcastle Head to Head
Newcastle tried to shut up shop at home against Man City recently and were eventually undone. Man City are unbeaten in their last four games against the Magpies now and have lost just one of their last twenty-two fixtures against them in all competitions now. The Citizens have won their last eight Premier League home games against Newcastle, scoring at least three goals in each of the last five against them on home soil.
Who will win – Manchester City v Newcastle Predictions
The Citizens are likely going to want to prove their defeat was just the most minor of blips and they can collect a victory in this one and there is more than a reasonable chance that it will be to nil. Newcastle doesn’t carry too much of an offensive threat and will probably get picked off.
