Manchester City vs. Newcastle Match Analysis and Prediction

Manchester City might have surrendered their title hopes to newly crowned champions Liverpool, but the race is still on. The side will be looking to finish off on a high note as they host side Newcastle at the Etihad Stadium. The match schedules for Wednesday with kickoff at 20:00 GMT.

Pep Guardiola might have given the guard of honor to Liverpool but sets his eyes on finish off the disappointing 2019/20 season on a high spirit. However, a 1-0 defeat to the Cherries was enough to insult to the injury.

The Cherries held off the threat by Citizens with an overhead flick caching Ederson unaware from the goalpost. The loss marked the 9th loss of the season and the third straight away loss for the Citizens.

Currently, Manchester City has lost more times than Arsenal and Manchester United. It might be the worst season for the Citizens following their two year UEFA Champions League ban.

Newcastle is battling the mid-table race with a series of impressive performances. Coach Steve Bruce will be looking to make matters worse for Pep, especially after their FA Cup loss. The side is currently 12th in the rankings with 43 points.

Will the ingenuity of Steve Bruce add more woes to Pep’s side, or will Pep execute revenge after their loss to the Cherries?
