Manchester City hosts Newcastle United in one of this weekend’s Premiership highlights. A win will be a massive boost for City’s title hopes while Newcastle could claim second place in the league standings if the match produces a win and other results go its way.
Man City has dominated Newcastle over recent seasons, taking 7 wins from its last ten clashes against the Magpies, while Newcastle managed a solitary home win back in 2005 and two matches produced draws.
Newcastle’s best result at the Etihad Stadium during this period was a 0-0 draw in 2006. The club’s last visit to the Etihad produced a 2-1 win for City.
Manchester City is in flawless form coming into this fixture, with eight wins in a row on record. City is unbeaten in the Premiership this season and has won all but two of its matches to date.
With 21 goals in five matches, the Manchester City forwards are an obvious source of the club’s success. Defence hasn’t had to do much with the opposition under so much pressure, and have conceded 5 goals in the same period.
Newcastle, meanwhile, has taken three wins, a loss and a draw from its last five fixtures. The Magpies are also on a strong run of form, and are also unbeaten in the Premier League this season.
Newcastle has scored a respectable 11 goals in its last five matches, but defence needs attention with 7 goals conceded during this period.
One of these teams is likely to surrender its unbeaten record on Saturday, and both the head-to-head stats and form suggests that it won’t be Manchester City.
The home team’s brilliant attack should have the measure of a Newcastle defence that has looked wobbly over recent weeks. Throw in home advantage and a team on a confidence high, and Newcastle is going to have to work very hard for the win.
Our Manchester City vs. Newcastle United betting tip is to back a high-scoring fixture, and our money is going on over 2.75 goals being scored in the over/under goals betting markets.
