Newcastle vs Man City Predictions


Man City head to Newcastle full of confidence after winning the Premier League title. Pep Guardiola’s side are also on an excellent run of form away in the Premier League and should record a comfortable victory over an inconsistent Newcastle.

I am backing City to cover a -1 handicap and win to nil. 

  • Newcastle have conceded 2+ goals in 7 of their last 9 home matches (Premier League)
  • Man City have won 8 of their last 11 matches against Newcastle (all competitions)
  • Man City have won to nil in their last 3 matches against Newcastle (Premier League)
  • Man City have scored 2+ goals in 6 of their last 7 matches against Newcastle (all competitions) 
  • Man City have won 19 of their last 20 away matches (all competitions)
  • Man City have won to nil in 6 of their last 9 away matches (Premier League)
  • Man City have covered a -1 handicap in 8 of their last 10 away matches (Premier League)

Head-to-Head


Newcastle have a 72-71 advantage against Man City in 183 meetings with 40 draws. 

City have won the last three matches between the sides, including a 2-0 win in the reverse fixture this season. 

Newcastle Form 


Newcastle beat Leicester 4-2 at the King Power Stadium on Friday, ending their run of two matches without a win in the Premier League.

Joe Willock and Paul Dummet scored early on before Callum Wilson netted a brace in the second half. The Magpies had 31% possession, soaked up heavy pressure but created good chances on the counter with 2.31 expected goals. 

The win followed a 1-1 away draw at Liverpool and a 2-0 home loss against Arsenal. Newcastle have won once in their last five home matches, a 3-2 victory against West Ham. 

Solid form has seen Newcastle climb to 16th in the Premier League as Steve Bruce’s side target a mid-table finish this season. 

Newcastle Injuries & Team News


Defenders Jamal Lascelles and Fabian Schar are ruled out.

Striker Callum Wilson and goalkeeper Karl Darlow are unavailable due to injury.

Midfielders Ryan Fraser, Elliot Anderson and Isaac Hayden are also out with long-term injuries. 

Man City Form


Man City were crowned Premier League champions on Tuesday following Man United’s loss against Leicester. City have a 10-point gap at the top of the table with three matches left this season.

Pep Guardiola’s side missed the chance to win the title on home soil on Saturday after losing 2-1 at home to Chelsea. 

City had the better chances with 1.79 expected goals and 16 shots. Raheem Sterling opened the scoring on 44 minutes before Sergio Aguero missed a penalty but Chelsea took advantage and scored two in the second half.

The result ended City’s run of five consecutive wins in all competitions, form which keeps the Citizens’ hopes of a treble alive.

City reached the Champions League final with a 4-1 aggregate win over Paris St Germain and lifted the EFL Cup with a 1-0 final win over Spurs in April. 

Man City Injuries & Team News


John Stones is back in contention after serving his three-match suspension.

Kevin De Bruyne should also return to the squad after missing the Chelsea match.
