Newcastle are one of the most out-of-form teams in the EPL right now. Only Brentford holds a worse record over the past six games, and during that spell, the Magpies have claimed just a single win while suffering defeat five times. At least victory over their bitter local rivals Sunderland in the FA Cup injected some fresh optimism. Still, Man City's visit is not well timed for Eddie Howe’s side who desperately need a win to avoid slipping even further down the table.
The talk of Man City’s downfall was a little premature. After a rare dry spell that saw the reigning champions go four league games within a win in early December, the world-class side are once again heading in the right direction. Man City are now four games undefeated, and key players like Kevin De Bruyne and Erling Halaand are returning after periods on the sideline with injury. While neither player is fit enough to start this match, De Bruyne is on the bench and will likely make an appearance.
Here's how they line up:
Newcastle: Dubravka, Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn, Longstaff, Guimaraes, Miley, Almiron, Isak, Gordon.
Man City: Ederson, Walker, Dias, Ake, Gvardiol, Rodri, Kovacic, Bernardo, Foden, Doku, Alvarez.
Man City have a remarkably dominant record against Newcastle. City have lost exactly once to Newcastle in the Premier League since 2005, and even draws between the two sides are pretty infrequent. It’s hard to see this match being anything but a very comfortable Man City win and another loss for an already battered and bruised Newcastle side.
Of course, anything can happen in football, and this matchup last season produced a scintillating 3-3 draw, so you won’t want to miss the Newcastle vs Man City live stream. Plus, make sure you don’t miss any of the EPL action by checking out our full how to watch Premier League live streams hub.
