Welcome to our Manchester City vs Newcastle preview, predictions and head to head analysis. The wheels have come off Manchester City’s season in the last 2 premier league matches, with losses at home to West Ham and away to Spurs. Those losses have cut the 7 point cushion they once had to the second placed team. They need to start winning again. Newcastle have started poorly with 4 losses and 3 draws. Last weekend’s draw against Chelsea would have been seen as a positive in any other season, but they are desperate for points. Can they come away with at least a point and put Manchester City under further pressure?
