Man City vs Newcastle 20 January 2018: EPL Preview and Predictions

David Beckham

For City, David Silva is set to return to the side after missing out on the Anfield loss due to a stomach bug while Fabian Delph is on the sidelines due to a knee injury against Liverpool. Even a treble would be a fantastic effort, with Guardiola having the flawless platform due to a healthy PL lead (12 points), and kind draws in the Champions League last 16 (Basel), League Cup semifinal (Bristol City) and FA Cup fourth round (Cardiff).

Pep Guardiola's side nearly got through that period unbeaten, but now they have lost, things could start to unravel.

BettingThe one definitive answer we got last week is that Man City will not be going the whole Premier League season undefeated.

This isn't something Manchester United or Chelsea fans have feared when they've been watching their teams dominate a campaign and open up a sizeable lead at the top of the table.

I see the battle for the final Champions League spot being between Chelsea and Tottenham.

Newcastle United could face the full brunt of a wounded Manchester City when the two sides clash on Saturday.

"My opinion of Alexis remains the same. He has chose to move on to another club and I wish him all the best".

"It's going to be a really big game for us".

"In terms of training, nothing changes. We need points, and that's the target".

Manchester City will look to bounce back strong from their loss last weekend and they have the flawless opportunity to do that as they are at home and facing weaker opposition.

The Kardashian family now as big as 15 members, is only growing and has now become an empire worth more than $50 million. Sources told Entertainment Tonight last week the couple are "fully prepared and can't wait to bring their baby home".

Swansea could be given a timely boost with the return of Tammy Abraham and Renato Sanches for the Premier League clahs.

Manchester United are second for me based on them being favourites to sign Sanchez, which would make them a shoe in.

Newcastle will actually enter this match having won their last two away Premier League matches, and they have some huge games coming up as they prepare to tackle the likes of Burnley and Crystal Palace over the next few weeks. United are unbeaten in their last five away matches in the Premier League, and are now riding a seven-match unbeaten run in the Premier League. The same can be said of Gabriel Jesus, who has lost just once in 38 games for the club since joining in January 2017.

Manchester City have scored a minimum of 4 goals in each of their last 4 Premier League matches at home against Newcastle United.

They have equalled the best record by a club after 23 matches of an English top-flight season (W20, D2, L1).

In all competitions, City have played 17 matches at home this season and have won 16 - their solitary slip-up a draw against Everton when they were reduced to 10 men.

With only four wins all season, the Welsh outfit will know they are up against it when Liverpool come to town.

Rebecca Lowe hosts Premier League Live and Goal Zone, joined by former Jamaica National Team player Robbie Earle, and former Premier League footballer Robbie Mustoe.

They could remain unbeaten in their opening four matches of a calendar year for the first time in 13 years.

"It has happened to them in this sort of game in the past - the opposition has sat in and made it hard for them, and the Reds have only ended up getting a draw".

Probability of away win: 1%.
