Newcastle vs Man City live preview Premier League

Man City
Match Stats


After a challenging end to 2023, Newcastle United found relief with a crucial 3-0 FA Cup victory over Sunderland, ending a string of defeats. Manager Eddie Howe, under pressure, fielded a strong lineup due to the injury crisis, leading to a brace from Alexander Isak and a first-half own goal securing the win. Despite a recent EFL Cup triumph against Man City, Newcastle's Premier League record against them is less favorable, having won only one of their last 32 encounters. A potential 10th league defeat on Saturday could see them fall 14 points behind the top four, jeopardizing their Champions League aspirations.

Man City:

FA Cup holders Manchester City, on the other hand, continued their impressive form with a dominant 5-0 win over Huddersfield Town, extending their unbeaten run to eight matches. Kevin De Bruyne's return from injury made headlines as City eyes a five-point gap to league leaders Liverpool. Pep Guardiola's side, with five consecutive victories and notable historical dominance against Newcastle, aims to secure maximum points at St James' Park and maintain their pursuit of the Premier League summit


Newcastle faces injury concerns with key players like Joe Willock, Callum Wilson, Matt Targett, Nick Pope, Jacob Murphy, Harvey Barnes, Elliot Anderson, and Javi Manquillo sidelined. Joelinton is likely to miss out due to a thigh problem, paving the way for 17-year-old Lewis Miley in midfield. Fabian Schar's contract extension ensures his presence in the back four alongside Kieran Trippier, Sven Botman, and Dan Burn. The attacking trio of Isak, Miguel Almiron, and Anthony Gordon is expected to remain unchanged.On the Manchester City side, John Stones is unavailable, and players like Erling Haaland, Manuel Akanji, Bernardo Silva, and Kalvin Phillips face fitness assessments. Defensive recalls for Kyle Walker and Nathan Ake are anticipated, with Ederson returning in goal. Rodri might be partnered by Mateo Kovacic or Rico Lewis in midfield. The potential return of Bernardo could impact the lineup, joining a forward trio with in-form Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, and Julian Alvarez. Kevin De Bruyne and Jeremy Doku are likely to see minutes from the bench rather than starting in Guardiola's lineup on Saturday.
