Manchester City v Newcastle United match prediction.
Pep Guardiola’s side are on another level at the Etihad Stadium and their recent dominance over Newcastle United in Manchester looks only set to continue given the Magpies’ injury troubles. Former Manchester United captain Steve Bruce has never won away at Manchester City as a manager, and it could be another long evening for him tonight. A 4-0 Man City win wouldn’t surprise anyone.
Best bet for Manchester City v Newcastle United.
Kevin De Bruyne has rightly attracted a lot of praise this season and has been widely regarded as the Premier League’s best player. The Belgian midfielder’s recent form has seen him either score or set up a goal 15 times in his last 14 Premier League starts. Expect De Bruyne to play a starring role again by backing him to score tonight.
