Manchester City continue to chase Arsenal for the English Premier League title, and the Citizens host Newcastle this Saturday as firm favorites to grab three points.   

Manchester City – Newcastle Betting Tip, Prediction & Odds (4.3.2023)

The Premier League title race is slowly but surely heating up, and Manchester City hope to beat Newcastle in front of the home fans to keep pace with Arsenal. On the other side, the Magpies have struggled a bit of late, dropping out of the Champions League qualification spot. 

Manchester City vs. Newcastle: Initial Situation 

At the time of writing, Manchester City were second in the EPL with 55 points (W17, D4, L4) and a 64:25 goal difference, a couple of points behind Arsenal who had a game in hand on the Citizens. Newcastle were fifth with 41 points (W10, D11, L2) and a 35:15 goal difference, four points behind fourth-placed Tottenham. 

Manchester City Stats & Form

The Citizens are coming off Tuesday’s 3-0 road victory over Bristol City in the FA Cup. It was their fourth win in six games in all competitions along with a 1-1 league draw against Nottingham Forest and a 1-1 Champions League draw versus RB Leipzig. Last weekend, the Citizens smashed Bournemouth 4-1 away from home, and Phil Foden led the way with a goal and an assist. 

Foden now has 12 goals and five assists on his season tally. Erling Haaland has accounted for 33 goals and four dishes, while Kevin De Bruyne is the team’s best assist-maker with 18 dishes in 32 appearances.

Newcastle Stats & Form

The Magpies are coming off Sunday’s 2-0 defeat to Manchester United in the EFL Cup Final. They outshot the Red Devils 15-14 and kept the ball in possession for 61 percent of the time but couldn’t find the back of the net. The Magpies are now winless in four straight outings in all competitions. They’ve also failed to win in four consecutive league games, earning three draws in the process. 

Miguel Almiron leads the way for Newcastle with ten goals and three assists in 30 appearances in all competitions this season. Callum Wilson has accounted for seven goals and three assists, Bruno Guimaraes and Joelinton have scored four goals apiece, while Kieran Trippier has seven assists on his account.

Manchester City – Newcastle: Head-to-Head

In their first meeting of the season, the Citizens and Magpies played a 3-3 draw at St. James’ Park in Newcastle. Manchester City rallied from a 3-1 deficit but ultimately failed to beat Newcastle for the seventh time in a row. The Citizens have won seven straight home encounters with the Magpies, and six of those seven victories have come by two or more goals. 

Manchester City – Newcastle Odds

On paper, Newcastle own the best defense in the Premier League. The Magpies have allowed just 15 goals in 23 matches. The bookmakers are still expecting a comfortable victory from the Citizens, and the Over 2.5 Goals pays 1.65 at bet365 Sportsbook.  


Betting tip and prediction: Manchester City – Newcastle (4.3.2023)

I’m expecting Manchester City to dismantle Newcastle. The Citizens will control the ball in the middle of the park and create a lot of scoring opportunities. The Magpies, on the other side, will defend in numbers, but I don’t think that will help at Etihad Stadium. As I’ve mentioned, Manchester City have dominated Newcastle over the last few years, especially at home. Keep your eyes on Erling Haaland, who’ll score a goal or two against Newcastle’s stout defense.
