Manchester City v Newcastle Betting Preview
Man City kicked off the campaign in trademark fashion as they recorded a comfortable 3-0 victory at Burnley, courtesy of Erling Haaland's brace and a goal from Rodri. Pep Guardiola’s side added yet another trophy to their list of honours with a penalty shootout win over an underwhelming Sevilla in the UEFA Super Cup, after drawing 1-1 in regular time. Prior to these two games, the Cityzens lost to Arsenal on penalties in the Community Shield. They will now aim to stretch their magnificent Premier League winning streak on their own turf to 11 games, having triumphed in all of their top-flight home meetings in 2023
Newcastle started the season with a statement 5-1 victory at home to Aston Villa. Eddie Howe's men looked devastating foing forward with creativity coming from all areas of the pitch and confirmed a good defensive solidity after ending last season with the joint-best defensive record in the division. The Magpies have never won in 18 Premier League games at the Etihad, drawing two and losing 16. Last season they played out a pulsating 3-3 draw at St James' Park, but Guardiola's side eased to a 2-0 victory at the Etihad in March.

Team News & Probable Line-Ups
Manchester City (4-2-3-1): Ederson; Walker, Dias, Gvardiol, Lewis; Rodri, Kovacic; Foden, Alvarez, Grealish; Haaland
Kevin De Bruyne has been ruled out for three to four months due to a harmstring injury while a fresh muscle issue will keep John Stones out. Ruben Dias will be available after concussion while his fellow countryman Bernardo Silva had a reported fever and did not travel with the squad to Greece in midweek. Rico Lewis and Bosko Gvardiol will feature from the off in a four man backline while Phil Foden, Julian Alvarez and Jack Grealish will support Erling Haaland up front.
Newcastle (4-3-3): Pope; Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn; Tonali, Guimaraes, Joelinton; Almiron, Isak, Barnes
Joe Willock is sidelined until mid-September but there are no fresh injuries. An unchanged line-up would seem to be the likeliest scenario after a demolition job of Aston Villa last weekend. The likes of Miguel Almiron, Alexander Isak and Aaron Gordon will lead the line in that case while Callum Wilson, Jacob Murphy and Harvey Barnes - all of whom contributed attacking returns off the bench in Gameweek 1 - may have to be content with cameos. At the back, Fabian Schar trained separately from the rest of the team this week. But he is still expected to retain his place in the starting XI.
Our Manchester City v Newcastle Predictions
Man City have won all of their last 14 home games against Newcastle but this time could be different.
Newcastle are a Top 4 contender nowadays and will play Champions League football for the first time in more than two decades. Furthermore, they have had a full week of rest to prepare for the game in comparison to the Citizens, something not to be underestimated at this stage of te season.
The Magpies' are a team full of willing runners which leaves them well equipped against a team who play a high defensive line.
As a result, we back Newcastle to win or draw (Double Chance) at very attractive odds. We also put a bit of money on a surprising scoreline - Newcastle to win 2:1. You can cover this bet by taking the massive 50/1 odds on Man City to win offered by Livescore Bet.
The Both Teams To Score option is another appealing bet for our tipsters.
