This intriguing early Saturday clash at the Etihad sees an increasingly inconsistent Man City take on a Newcastle side hoping to bounce back from their heartbreaking Carabao Cup final defeat last weekend.
Recent dropped points by City against Spurs and Nottingham Forest have allowed Arsenal to open up a five-point cushion at the top of the English Premier League, and boss Pep Guardiola will be determined not to let that gap grow further this weekend.
While City have the league’s deadliest striker in the form of Erling Haaland, the free-scoring Norwegian star looks set to have a tough challenge on Saturday in adding to his 27-goal tally.
Boss Eddie Howe has made Newcastle a particularly tough nut to crack, with his side boasting the best defense in the top four divisions of English football, having conceded just 15 goals in total and just six in the last 14 Premier League games.
Despite those stats, Newcastle have managed only four wins from their last 12 matches. That run has seen them drop out of the top four, and last Sunday’s defeat at Wembley to Man United likely inflicted another dent in the Magpies’ morale.
