Manchester City to win
The Sky Blues are coming home after scoring an away win against Bristol City by 0-3. The team looks confident and Pep will be eying the top spot in the Premier League. Phil Foden scored two goals in the last fixture and gave an early advantage to his team. Earling Haaland has turned out to be the highest scorer for Manchester City in his first season.
John Stones is out of action because of his thigh injury.
Predicted Lineup: Ederson, Walker, Dias, Ake, Rodri, Bernardo, Foden, De Bruyne, Gundogan, Grealish. Haaland
Newcastle have been through a rough patch recently and it seems like their Europa League spot is in danger after a shocking loss against Liverpool. They lost the opportunity to win their first-ever EFL Trophy as they were defeated by Manchester United in the final. However, the Magpies are known to bounce back stronger and they are expected to do well in the upcoming game.
Joseph Willock is facing injury time due to his thigh injury.
Predicted Lineup: Karius, Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn, Longstaff, Guimaraes, Joelinton, Almiron, Wilson, Saint-Maximin
Manchester City need a win this to keep pressure on Arsenal at the top of the table. However, Newcastle will be hoping to have a positive result after losing in the Cup final.
Although Newcastle can give City a run for the money, we think City will win 2-1.
