Prediction: Newcastle United vs Manchester City

Prediction: Manchester City to win 2-0

Best Odds: 5/1

Bookmaker: Betfair

Newcastle United and Manchester City will face each other in the Premier League this week. The game is slated to kick off at 8pm UK time on Friday.

Newcastle United

Newcastle United’s season is basically over. The Magpies are not going to get relegated from the Premier League, and that was manager Steve Bruce’s main priority this campaign. Newcastle are 16th in the league table at the moment with 39 points from 35 matches.

Bruce’s side will head into the match against newly-crowned Premier League champions on the back of a 4-2 victory over Champions League hopefuls Leicester City. The Magpies were actually 4-0 up at one stage, but they conceded twice late on.

Team News:

Callum Wilson will miss the final three Premier League games for Newcastle due to a hamstring injury.

Manchester City

Just like Newcastle United, Manchester City have nothing to play for between now and the end of the Premier League season. That’s because the Citizens have already won the league title this campaign, their third in four years. Manchester United’s defeat to Leicester at Old Trafford in the league on Tuesday evening saw Pep Guardiola’s side clinch the championship.

However, City still have a lot to play this season, namely the Champions League. Guardiola will not want his players to lose momentum and will want to make sure that they win their final  three league games.

Team News:

Sergio Aguero is likely to start for City and lead the line.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Manchester City have won the Premier League title this season.
  • Newcastle United will not get relegated to the Championship.
  • Manchester City have scored 72 goals and conceded 26 goals in the Premier League.
  • Newcastle United have scored 40 goals and conceded 58 goals in the Premier League.
  • Manchester City beat Newcastle United 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium in December 2020.

Conclusion

Newcastle will be determined to turn on the style against City. With no relegation worries now, the Magpies will be able to more freely, but there is not getting away from the fact that City have the best squad in the Premier League. Even if Guardiola does not field a strong team, they should still be able to pick up all three points from the encounter.
