Manchester City – Newcastle United

Packed, that’s the only way we can describe the upcoming football weekend in Europe. There really is something for everyone at the moment and the ball is rolling again on the island. After the fans were able to look forward to the FA Cup during the week, the Premier League will be the centre of attention again this weekend. The 26th matchday kicks off on Saturday at 13:30. Manchester City will face the Magpies from Newcastle. Find out whether City can keep up with league leaders Arsenal in our Man City – Newcastle tip.

Even though the Sky Blues have shown some successful football in recent weeks, Pep Guardiola’s team is still only in second place. The gap to league leaders Arsenal is currently five points. The upcoming opponents from Newcastle had to let up a little bit in the last weeks. Coach Eddie Howe’s team has been waiting four games for a win. However, the Magpies are still in fifth place at the moment.

Man City Form & Balance Check

The Sky Blues from Manchester go into decisive weeks. It is not only in the Premier League that coach Pep Guardiola’s men have to deliver. The gap to Arsenal FC is five points and the current form speaks for City. They have won three, drawn one and lost one of their last five games.

On the last matchday, the Sky Blues won 4-1 against promoted Bournemouth. Erling Haaland scored his 27th goal of the season against the Cherries, breaking another record. Never before has a Sky Blues player scored as many times in a season as Haaland and that was after matchday 25.

City must deliver

In recent years, it has usually been the case that City have been the team to beat. This year, the Sky Blues have to chase Arsenal FC. Man City has a much bigger squad than the Gunners and that can be decisive in the end.

Even though they haven’t lost in the league for four games, the Sky Blues haven’t always been convincing lately. Especially in the Champions League against Leipzig, they only managed a 1-1 draw in the first leg. After Mahrez took the lead, City pulled back far too far and we have seen that happen many times this season.

Man City facts & analysis

 – 2nd place in the Premier League.
 – Since 4 games without defeat
 – Most recent 4-1 win over Bournemouth

Newcastle form & balance check

Compared to last season, where the Magpies from Newcastle really played against relegation for a very long time, things are going much better this year. Newcastle are currently fifth in the table and despite the fact that they haven’t won in four games, coach Eddie Howe’s side are more than holding their own.

On the last matchday, they faced Liverpool FC, their direct rivals for international football. The home match against the Reds was lost 0:2. The game was quickly decided in Liverpool FC’s favour, mainly due to the sending off of goalkeeper Nick Pope.

Lost League Cup Final

Last weekend, the biggest game in the club’s recent history was on the cards. London’s Wembley Stadium hosted the League Cup final against the Red Devils from Manchester. With Loris Karius between the posts, Newcastle put in a good performance, but the 2-0 defeat was ultimately more than in order. Looking ahead to the next game, the Magpies’ good defence should again do the job. Newcastle have by far the best backline in the Premier League this season. They have conceded only 15 goals so far.

Newcastle facts & analysis

 – 5th place in the Premier League
 – Without a win for 4 games
 – Best defence in the league

Predicted line-up – last update on 3 March 2023

The hosts from Manchester will go back to their usual 4-3-3 for the upcoming fixture. The Sky Blues are expected to go into the game unchanged. Ederson is back between the posts, Mahrez, Haaland and Grealish will try to set the tone in attack. Gündogan will again play with Rodri and De Bruyne in the centre. The glaring outsiders from Newcastle also want to counter in a 4-3-3. Coach Howe relies on the fast Almiron and Saint-Maximin on the outside. Wilson will play up front as the only top player.
