Newcastle showcased their form last week with a convincing 3-0 triumph over Sunderland in the FA Cup, a crucial win considering their recent struggles with seven defeats in nine matches. The team’s performance has somewhat diminished from their early-season success, prompting rumors of a potential coaching change. Results such as a 1-3 loss to Nottingham Forest and a 0-1 defeat to Luton Town have contributed to Newcastle’s decline in the Premier League standings, currently occupying the ninth position.

In contrast, Manchester City has answered most questions regarding their form. While experiencing a brief crisis at the end of the previous year, the team has rebounded with an eight-match unbeaten streak, securing victories in all but one of these encounters. Notably, City clinched the Club World Cup and delivered a commanding 5-0 victory over Huddersfield in the FA Cup during the past week.

Newcastle continues to grapple with numerous injuries, impacting their overall performance. Meanwhile, Manchester City welcomed the return of Kevin de Bruyne but is currently without Haaland due to injury.

Prediction

Acknowledging Manchester City’s dominance in various aspects, Newcastle, particularly at home, presents a resilient challenge. Therefore, it is suggested that Guardiola’s team might only secure a single point from this match.
