Manchester city will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing defeat away at St Mary’s Stadium when they take on Newcastle united at the Etihad stadium on Wednesday evening.
Manchester city away performance is total nonsense this season which has seen them lost their last 2 away league matches since the restart. Their home performance is a far cry from the absymal away losses they have recorded. They have won their last 4 home matches in the Epl with 12 goals scored and nothing conceded.
Newcastle have been superb in this restart with 2 draws and 2 wins.

Manchester city vs Newcastle united team news
Pep Guardiola will be without Sergio Aguero for this match.
Ciaran Clark, Sean Longstaff, Florian Lejeune, and Isaac Hayden are out injured for Newcastle while Andy Caroll, Miguel Almiron, and Allan Saint-Maximin are doubts for this match.
Manchester city vs Newcastle united preview
Pep Guardiola has reiterated that his focus is on the FA cup and Champions League match against Real Madrid. This mean he’s likely to rotate against Newcastle united. This will give the likes of Foden, Zinchenko, and Otamendi a chance to prove themselves.
Manchester city oozes quality and no Matt the squad use, you are sure of a quality performance. They are playing at home where they have been solid all season scoring 45 goals in just 16 matches. The restart has seen them improve that record with 12 goals in their last 3 home games.
Manchester city will dominate the game and get the goals to kill any upset thought.
Newcastle are also in good form and have scored 10 league goals since the restart with 4 goals conceded in that same period. The four goals came against bottom teams Westham, Aston villa, and Bournemouth. This tells you a thing or two about their defence. The defence is not solid and will crumble against better opponents.
Manchester city vs Newcastle united predictions
I expect Manchester city quality to show in this match. Kevin De Bruyne is likely to start and cause all sort of problem to the Newcastle defence. Gabriel Jesus will be hungry for goals today as he look to end his drought while Foden good form that has seen him score 5 since the restart should continue.
Over 3 goals at odds 1.54 looks great on betscorum.
