Newcastle United vs. Manchester City Match Analysis and Prediction

Fresh from lifting the Premier League title, Champions Manchester City looks to end the season on a high note as they take on Newcastle United. The match schedules for Friday at St. James Park, with kickoff at 10 pm.

Despite the Citizens losing to Chelsea 2-1, Manchester United’s loss to Leicester City gave Pep Guardiola his fifth title in 10 season campaigns. In contrast, Newcastle can sigh relief after getting assurance of another season in England’s top flight.

Moreover, Chelsea awaits on May 29 – with the Citizens with only three matches to play before then. Man City will be looking for a quick response following last week’s disappointing loss to the Blues. However, a fifth Premier League loss did not matter, thanks to Leciester’s victory at Old Trafford.

In contrast, Newcastle can focus on finish the season on a high note after taking off the pressure. The Magpies put up an interesting show at King Power Stadium with four shipping goals. It marked Steve Bruce’s third win in five league matches. Additionally, wins over Burnley and West Ham United assured their stay in the top flight.
