Newcastle United v Manchester City Match Preview & Best Odds

 

Fresh from their 8-0 demolition of Sheffield United at Bramall Lane last weekend, Newcastle United entertain Manchester City on Tyneside in the League Cup third round on Wednesday evening.

Records were broken on Sunday afternoon as Newcastle United scored eight without reply against Sheffield United in South Yorkshire, eight different Magpies’ players scoring for the very first time in a Premier League match. This was also Newcastle’s biggest ever away win in the Premier League and it was a perfect response to a somewhat lacklustre and below par start to the campaign, Eddie Howe’s men having lost three of their opening four outings. In recent weeks the Tyneside outfit have managed to turn things around however with a 1-0 win against Brentford and a 0-0 draw at AC Milan in their Champions League opener ahead of their thrashing of the Blades last weekend.

Newcastle are now looking like the side which made it to the final of the 2022/23 League Cup while achieving a top-four finish to the Premier League, therefore Howe’s side will be optimistic about their chances of inflicting upon Manchester City their first defeat of the season.

Pep Guardiola’s men enjoyed a 2-0 win over Nottingham Forest last weekend and this maintained their unbeaten start to the campaign. City are the only side to have taken a maximum points haul from each of their Premier League games this term with six successive victories, keeper Ederson conceding a mere three goals along the way. Guardiola knows exactly what is needed in the League Cup given that he has steered his men to the trophy in all-but-four of the last ten renewals of the tournament and they will pose the Magpies a tough question in this midweek clash.

Indeed while Newcastle have been buoyed by their thumping of Sheffield United last time out and will be brimming with confidence ahead of this match, we envisage Guardiola’s side flexing their muscles and earning for themselves a place in the next round of the competition with a hard-fought win at St James’ park.
