City hit a bumpy patch

It’s been a testing few weeks for Manchester City and Pep Guardiola’s stuttering Citizens produced another unconvincing display during midweek, in their 1-1 draw at home to Shakhtar Donetsk.

The poor result at the Etihad against the Ukrainian champions meant City have now won just one of their last four games; the team’s fragility at the back continues to hamstring their pursuit of honours on multiple fronts.

After their draw on Tuesday, City’s record reads a dismal one clean sheet in eight attempts and the Citizens have conceded at least once in each of their last six outings in all competitions.

However, in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off, City will at least hope to get back to winning ways against a Newcastle side that were swept aside with ease by Aston Villa on Monday evening.

Newcastle’s set-piece threat?

The Magpies’ 0-2 reverse at Villa Park was their first loss in four matches, though it was the third time in four Premier League away matches where the team failed to register.

The Toon Army have been highly critical of their team’s lack of productivity in attack, with Brazilian striker Joelinton drawing the most ire, though the Magpies have fared a little better in that department on home turf.

Newcastle have scored at least once in four of their last five Premier League home games, with the team’s threat from set-pieces a particularly potent weapon, and we’re backing the Magpies to make the most of that avenue against a City side that regularly struggle to defend dead-ball deliveries into their box.

Any goal is likely to be a consolation strike, however, with the Citizens heavy favourites to take all three points on Tyneside.

City to get back to winning ways

City are unbeaten in six of their last seven meetings with Newcastle, winning three of their most recent four encounters with the Magpies, and though they lost on their last trip to St. James’ Park in January, we expect the champions to exact a measure of revenge on Saturday.

City emerged as victors from 11 of their 13 Premier League away games they have contested since their shock loss at Newcastle at the beginning of the year and we expect them to extend that fine record at the Magpies’ expense this weekend.

With the aforementioned factors considered, we think the Man City and both teams to score combination is priced generously for Saturday’s game, while our correct score prediction forecasts a narrow 2-1 Citizens win.

Newcastle conceded a total of just four goals in their six Premier League home fixtures this term, and with the Magpies certain to field five at the back and a defence-minded midfield against City, we’re backing them to keep the score to respectable levels.
