Newcastle United vs Manchester City Preview

Newcastle United vs Manchester City

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – St James’ Park

Date: 27th December 2017

Kick-off time – 19:45 GMT

Newcastle United ended their dismal run of games last weekend when they secured a thrilling 3-2 win over West Ham United.

That result brought to an end a run of 9 games without a win where they also collected just one point out of a possible 27.

They will be looking to build on that win but hosting the unstoppable Manchester City, even a draw would be taken as a win in this game.

Newcastle are currently 15th in the league table, just two points off the relegation zone.

The Magpies do not have the best home form ahead of this game as their last four home games have ended in losses to teams like, Watford, Leicester City, Bournemouth and Everton.

Manchester city continue their march towards winning a possible trio of trophies this season with a comfortable 4-0 win over Bournemouth at the weekend.

That win followed on from their midweek league cup win over Leicester City.

They have won their last 17 Premier League games and look set to make that 20 as they play Newcastle, Crystal Palace and Watford in their next three league games.

The Cityzens have won every single one of their away games this season, scoring at least three goals in all but three of those matches.

Manchester City have four wins, one draw and one loss against Newcastle in their most recent meetings.
