Newcastle vs Manchester City Betting Tips
Manchester City are losing the battle with Liverpool in the chance for the Premier League title. Actually, they’re losing it to Leicester City as well, who are currently second on the table, behind the table leader Liverpool.
At the moment, the point gap between Liverpool and Man City is 9 points, meaning that there is no way they can get to the top anytime soon. But, they have a chance to overtake second place from the Foxes. But, in order for that to happen, Leicester City need to fail to win against Everton at home. And, of course, Manchester City need to beat Newcastle.
This is a must-win game for Man City if they want to stay in the competition for the title. Last season, when they won the trophy, they had only four defeats in total. This season, they already have three losses and we’re not even at the halfway. That said, they really need to improve their form and even more importantly, make sure to stay focused on every single game. There are no more dropping points against weaker sides, such as Newcastle.
The good news for their fans is that Sky Blues are famous for that. This is a team that has probably the longest bench in the world. Their backup players are as almost as good as their first-choice eleven. This means that Pep Guardiola has the luxury to pick the fittest players in every single game. What’s got to worry Manchester City is that they still have problems with injuries, especially at the back.
Actually, the problems with injuries in the defense are why this team has allowed too many goals this season. At least, too many for their standards. For instance, Man City have conceded in every of their previous six matches in all competitions. The good news is that it’s pretty much the same situation with Newcastle, their next opponent.

Newcastle Form and Latest News
This season Newcastle seem like a real mid-table team. They don’t have the manpower to achieve anything more than that, but, at the same time, they shouldn’t worry too much about getting relegated. Their brightest moment of the season was the win over Manchester United at the beginning of October, but they shouldn’t hope to do something similar against the other club from Manchester.
Their biggest problem this season was the lack of proper center-backs. When Laporte got injured, Guardiola had to use some defensive midfielders to replace him. Actually, Fernandinho is still performing that role, while Rodri was also employed as a defender on a few occasions. Still, the biggest injury problem at the moment is the muscle issue that’s bothering their best player Sergio Aguero.
