PREDICTION AND WINNING ODDS
ABOUT THE MATCH
Newcastle United is going head to head with Manchester City starting on 21 Aug 2022 at 15:30 UTC at St James’ Park stadium, Newcastle upon Tyne city, England. The match is a part of the Premier League.
Hoping to continue their perfect start to the Premier League season, Manchester City will make the trip to St James’ Park to take on Newcastle United on Sunday.
Pep Guardiola‘s side have started their title defence with back-to-back league wins, while their hosts are also unbeaten after two outings in England’s top flight.
Heading into their first full season under the management of Eddie Howe, Newcastle United set about hoping to improve on last year’s 11th-placed finish, having enjoyed an impressive rise following his appointment in November.
After a summer which saw goalkeeper Nick Pope and centre-back Sven Botman arrive from Burnley and Lille respectively, while Matt Targett‘s loan was made permanent, the Magpies kicked off their top-flight campaign with a home contest against newly-promoted Nottingham Forest and came away with all three points.
The game remained goalless until the hour mark, but Fabian Schar eventually broke the deadlock with an eye-catching effort from distance, before Callum Wilson wrapped up the points with his side’s second goal 12 minutes from time.
The Magpies would then travel to take on Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend and returned home with a point following a goalless draw, largely thanks to Pope’s heroics between the sticks.
Howe has plenty to be pleased about, with his side yet to concede in two top-flight outings and having won eight of their last nine home league matches spanning back to February, but both of those records will certainly be put to the test on Sunday as the defending champions arrive looking to make it three wins from three games.
After a 3-1 defeat to Liverpool in the Community Shield, Pep Guardiola’s side began their bid for a third straight league title and a fifth in the last six seasons with a trip to West Ham United on the opening day.
Erling Braut Haaland marked his league debut with a goal from the penalty spot to put them ahead in the 35th minute, and the Norwegian would go on to hit his and the Citizens’ second to ensure they returned home with all three points.
Rodri and Ilkay Gundogan have operated in a three-man midfield in both league games thus far and should continue their partnership behind talismanic midfielder Kevin De Bruyne.
The Citizens could continue to rotate their attacking options, with Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, Riyad Mahrez and Bernardo Silva all battling to flank striker Erling Braut Haaland.
Newcastle United possible starting lineup:
Pope; Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn; Almiron, Joelinton, Guimaraes, Willock, Saint-Maximin; Wilson
Manchester City possible starting lineup:
