Newcastle United v Manchester City Match Preview & Trends

Champions travel north to face a relieved Magpies side

The prospect of needing to get 3 points off this relentless Man City team in order to survive relegation would not have thrilled Steve Bruce a few weeks ago. Luckily for him, their surprise victory against Leicester City and subsequent results for other teams mean that The Geordies are safe for one more year. Pep Guardiola brings the newly crowned champions to the North-East with the luxury of having a fully fit squad to rotate and assess for the remaining three Premier League fixtures before he chooses his first choice 11 for the Champions League Final against Chelsea.

If Newcastle Utd win, they would reduce the gap with Manchester City to a 38-point difference in the league table, and it would be the end of an 11-match winning streak away for Manchester City. There has been a first-half goal scored in each of Newcastle’s last 7 games in a row and they have conceded at least one goal from Man City in the last 7 home matches. Steve Bruce’s men have conceded at least one goal from Man City in the last 10 games and have only won one of their last 5 home games against Man City.

The Magpies have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 9 home games and have won just one of their last 5 Premier League fixtures at St.James’ Park.
