Newcastle vs Man City EPL betting tips

Champions Manchester City will kick off the action for EPL Matchweek 14 with a trip to St James’ Park on Saturday afternoon. Pep Guardiola will be hoping for a routine win against Newcastle United as City attempt to narrow the nine-point gap on runaway leaders Liverpool.

A 1-1 draw with Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday night was all Man City needed to make it into the UEFA Champions League round of 16, qualifying as winners of Group C with a game to spare. Releasing the burden of expectation on the European front comes as music to the ears of Guardiola, who now turns his attention to domestic duties.

Winners of the last two Premier League campaigns, Manchester City have been nowhere near their imperial best this season. They have already lost three EPL matches – just one fewer than they registered throughout the entire course of last season.

City bounced back to victory last weekend thanks to a 2-1 win over visiting Chelsea. That result elevated them to third place on 28 points, a point behind Leicester City and nine points adrift of leaders Liverpool.

As such, the Citizens will be hoping that the win will jolt them into form ahead of the Manchester derby in early December – a match that could prove decisive in their defence of the league title.

Newcastle United suffered a 2-0 defeat away to Aston Villa on Monday night. The loss, their second in five matches, saw the Magpies tumble to 14th on the table on 15 points, leaving them 13 points behind the champions and just five points above the drop zone.

Beaten by a Villa side that hadn’t won any of their last three league matches, Steve Bruce’s Magpies certainly will have their work cut out on Saturday when they take on the highest-scoring team in the Premier League.

Newcastle United team news

Jamaal Lascelles continues a lengthy spell on the sidelines with a knee injury, with the defender not expected to return until the New Year. Winger Matt Ritchie, who has been out of action since damaging his ankle ligaments against Leicester in August, suffered a recent setback and is also ruled out of City’s visit.

Newcastle will welcome the return of midfielder Sean Longstaff, who is back from a three-match suspension after receiving a straight red against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Manchester City team news

Veteran striker Sergio Aguero has been ruled out of the match due to a thigh injury sustained against Chelsea, while defenders Aymeric Laporte and Oleksandr Zinchenko are both sidelined with knee injuries. City will also be without the services of winger Leroy Sane, who has not featured since the start of the season due to a serious knee injury.

Raheem Sterling goalscorer odds and tips

• Sterling first goalscorer – +350 at Bovada
• Sterling anytime goalscorer/Man City win – -105.26

Raheem Sterling is Manchester City’s leading scorer with 14 goals in all competitions. The injury to Sergio Aguero leaves Gabriel Jesus as the only recognised striker in the team, which means Sterling — who has found the back of the net 18 times in 23 appearances for both club and country – could come up with the goods should he take on a more central role this weekend.

Newcastle vs Man City betting predictions

St James’ Park is always a tough ground to go to, and teams often struggle to break the Magpies down on their own turf. Although Newcastle have registered marginal wins this season over big sides such as Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United, their biggest undoing remains their lack of goals – something Manchester City have no trouble producing.
