Manchester City v Newcastle betting preview
Man City have surprisingly dropped points at Wolves last weekendManchester City remain Premier League title favourites despite they only managed to draw 1-1 against Wolves last weekend. Prior to that, Pep Guardiola's men won the Community Shield (2-0 over Chelsea), recorded an impressive 2-0 win away at Arsenal and a 6-1 demolition of Huddersfield at the Etihad. The Citizens have not lost any of their last 21 league matches against Newcastle and have won 17 of their 20 Premier League home games since the start of last season.
Pep Guardiola is expected to field a 3-5-2 to allow both Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero to start up front. Fernandinho will anchor the midfield while David Silva and Ilaky Gundogan will support the front duo, as well as Benjamin Mendy and Bernardo Silva from the flanks. Leroy Sanè, Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez should all start on bench again. The three man backline should be formed by Aymeric Laporte, John Stones and Vincent Kompany. The likes of Danilo, Eliaquim Mangala, Kevin De Bruyne and Claudio Bravo are all missing through injury.
Newcastle's only mission will be to contain and look for a pointNewcastle United pay visit to the reigning champions with only one point from their first three fixtures, which was garnered in a 0-0 draw away to Cardiff to weeks ago. That draw was sandwiched by two home losses at the hands of Tottenham (1-2) and Chelsea (1-2). Furthermore, Rafa Benitez's men suffered a 3-1 defeat against Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup in midweek. Their away form is very poor - the Magpies have won just four of their 20 trips away since last season began. As to direct matches, Etihad Stadium has been a tough trip for Benitez's side in recent years too, they've lost each of their previous nine visits, conceding 32 goals and scoring just six times.
Jamaal Lascelles is fit and would seem likely to return to the starting XI. He will replace one of Fabian Schar, Ciaran Clark or Federico Fernandez in the back five, with Paul Dummet and DeAndre Yedlin as full backs. Kenedy should come into the side having missed last time out, considering also that Matt Ritchie has joined Jonjo Shelvey in the treatment room and Isaac Hayden is still suspended. Up front, Salomon Rondon and Joselu are in contention for the lone striker berth while Ayoze Perez should be benched.
