Newcastle United vs Manchester City

Newcastle United faces the daunting task of taking on Manchester City this Tuesday as they go head-to-head at St James’ Park in matchday 24 of the Premier League. The Toon have had little to cheer about this season with their performances granting them a spot just outside of the relegation zone as we head into the second half of the season. As expected, City are having a strong season and will continue their chase on Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table. When these sides met at the Etihad Stadium earlier this season, Newcastle only narrowly lost out 2-1 but we are expecting a much stronger result for City in this meeting.

The Newcastle fans are in need of something to cheer about but with City as their next opponents, they may have to wait to celebrate as this may be a case of damage limitation for Rafael Benitez. United enter this game down in 17th place just two points clear of the relegation zone. However, their last league match against Cardiff City saw them pick up three points after they won 3-0 but this win was dimmed by their 2-0 loss to Watford in the FA Cup. Bet365 have Newcastle United priced at 16/1 to take the three points from this clash.

Rafael Benitez will be expecting a tough game this Tuesday, but he will be hoping his side can put out a similar performance that they did in the first meeting which saw them lose by just one goal. SkyBet has this game to also end 2-1 to Man City priced at 9/1. If Newcastle are to win this game we feel it will be by a single goal and SkyBet have Newcastle to win by Exactly 1 Goal priced at 18/1. Three of the Toons last five matches have seen over 2.5 goals scored and with the goal-happy City involved, we can see this game ending with over 2.5 goals. Betway has over 2.5 goals to be scored priced at 4/9.

This Premier League clash has a Manchester City win written all over it and with the way City have been playing recently, we can not see anything other than a win for Pep Guardiola’s men. City enters this game sat in second place trailing Liverpool by just four points making every game huge for Guardiola in his attempt to take first place. Following their 5-0 win over Burnley, City have now won their last eight games on the bounce. SkyBet has priced City to win at 2/11, but if you fancy their chances then City to win with a -2 handicap sits at 11/8.

Winning their last eight games on the bounce is impressive enough, but add the fact that City have kept clean sheets in their last six matches shows their strength and quality as a side. You can back them to keep another clean sheet this Tuesday with SkyBet for a price of 8/11. Gabriel Jesus continues with his goalscoring form and following his goal against Burnley has now scored eight in his last six fixtures. Bet365 has the Brazilian to score anytime priced at 4/6.
