What Trueform says for Man City vs Newcastle
Newcastle have put together a decent run of results and may now be better placed to put in a more positive showing against Manchester City, judged on our Trueform ratings.
The Magpies were incredibly negative when going down 1-0 at home to the Blues just after Christmas, but still almost pinched a late equaliser when Dwight Gayle headed wide.
A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds
City enjoyed 78 per cent of the possession when recording an 18th straight Premier League victory at St James’ Park, but their air of invincibility has been punctured since that match.
The Blues had to save a late penalty when drawing 0-0 at Crystal Palace and have conceded in four subsequent games, culminating in Sunday’s 4-3 defeat at Liverpool.
Most of the damage was done in a whirlwind nine-minute spell in the second half at Anfield, in which City conceded three times.
Ilkay Gundogan commented: “We need to learn now, especially from that period when we were not fully there.
“Our first defeat of the season – we need to accept that, even though it’s not easy. But we will look forward and we will now focus on the next game.”
The runaway leaders should be strong enough to bounce back but did look fragile at the back, so 31/20 for a home win and both teams to score is another option for our Man City vs Newcastle betting tips.
A Look At Newcastle United’s Betting Odds
That loss to City was Newcastle’s sole defeat in six matches, with United picking up eight Premier League points and beating Luton 3-1 in the FA Cup during that period.
Rafael Benitez will have been frustrated to only draw 1-1 at home to basement dwellers Swansea on Saturday but they did create plenty of chances, with Gayle, Ayoze Perez and Paul Dummett all going close.
Benitez was happy to see summer signing Joselu bag an equaliser, stating of the £5million bargain buy: “We knew he could score goals, that he could make a contribution, and he’s doing that.”
The Magpies should also take heart from having won their last two top-flight away games at West Ham and Stoke, while they scored in defeat at Chelsea and Manchester United earlier this season.
Looking at the Man City vs Newcastle odds, we like 31/10 for the Blues to prevail 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 from the multiple correct score market.
