Manchester City – Newcastle Tips Free Betting Tips

The Premier League (PL) title race is intensifying and reigning champions Manchester City are keeping the pressure on table-toppers Arsenal after an emphatic 4-1 win at home to Bournemouth last weekend. After recording a comfortable 3-0 FA Cup win over Bristol City, Man City manager Pep Guardiola, who recently criticized Manchester United’s spending, will be desperate for a good result against Newcastle, the richest club in the PL at present.

City remain in the title hunt despite their 55 points after 25 games representing the fewest in four of their last five PL campaigns, the exception (2019/20) being the season in which they failed to lift the championship trophy. However, record will be the last thing on Guardiola’s mind as he prepares to face a team that City have beaten in 13 consecutive PL home games, while another win here would set the record for most wins in a row against a single opponent in the competition.

This is a very different Newcastle team to the one City has faced over the years, as they are currently fighting for a place in the upcoming UEFA Champions League. The “Magpies” came close to League Cup glory after losing in the final 2-0 to Manchester United at Wembley last weekend, although their away form has been solid in the PL with a current unbeaten run of eight away games (G4, E4), representing their longest such run in English soccer’s top flight.

Eddie Howe’s rejuvenated side also snapped a run of six straight defeats in official clashes in this particular fixture with a 3-3 draw in the first leg against City in August 2022, and with no team conceding fewer goals in their PL visits so far (seven), Newcastle are again likely to be an opponent to watch out for. Only time will tell if the visitors are still recovering from losing the final last weekend, as they strive to close a five-point gap to fourth-placed Tottenham.

Players to watch: Phil Foden is having a good run of form, adding four goal contributions in City’s last two games (three goals, one assist), but Miguel Almiron could be the one to open the scoring, having scored all three of his goals in Newcastle’s last five away games during the early stages.
Key stat: Manchester City has scored in its last 28 PL games against Newcastle, marking the longest streak of one team scoring against another in the competition’s history.
