Newcastle United vs Manchester City: Prediction and Betting Tips
A late rally saw Newcastle surge towards safety
Three wins and a draw in their last five matches, picking up ten points out of a possible 15, have assured Newcastle another season in the Premier League next term. Steve Bruce had a chaotic season fighting off relegation throughout this campaign but now he can have a breather as his team secured their Premier League Stance before the visit of Manchester City.
The Magpies rallied to a series of good results in their last six matches suffering just one defeat at the hands of Arsenal, beating in-form West Ham and Leicester and drawing with Liverpool and Tottenham. A Look at the six teams they played and Steve Bruce must be proud of his team as it could have gone all wrong against Premier League’s top clubs and Newcastle could have been in the relegation zone now.
Crowned champions Manchester City earn their first trophy of the season
The Citizens have been crowned champions of the English Premier League for the third time in four seasons after Manchester United lost to Leicester at Old Trafford on Tuesday night. It is Pep Guardiola’s tenth major honor since taking charge at City in 2016. The Spaniard saw his team secure their first Champions League final place last week as the Citizens aim to win their maiden European trophy.
Manchester City have been the best team in the Premier League this season in terms of form consistency. After a shaky start until November, The Citizens had gone 19 matches unbeaten and took command at the Premier League top spot and never looked back. Pep’s mind will be on the Champions League final now as they meet Chelsea who are the only team to beat City twice this season.
- Newcastle have lost one of their last six home games
- Newcastle have scored in eight of their last nine home matches
- 76% of Newcastle’s home matches have seen both teams score
- BTTS happened in City’s three of their last four matches
- City had clean sheets in 53 % of their away matches
- Under 3.5 goals were scored in City’s last five matches
Newcastle vs Manchester City Prediction
Pep Guardiola is a perfectionist and he enters matches with the intention of winning. We don’t expect he will have a different approach coming into this game. Pep may give the chance to players who didn’t play much this season but as we saw throughout the season, the Citizens’ squad is too strong to field a weakened team in any match.
Newcastle are comfortable now that they are safe and will play this match without pressure. It will be a chance for Steve Bruce’s players to shine against tough opposition as their season nears the end.
We predict both teams will score in this match following their stats. For our second prediction, we will back under 3.5 goals.

Under 3.5 Goals 1.57 or 4/7 at William Hill
