Manchester City have not been able to keep up with Liverpool this season and will have to settle for 2nd place in the Premier League.
The confrontation with Newcastle is a no-brainer for both “citizens” and “cotofene”, so a match with many goals awaits us on Etihad Stadium.
He was motivated only in the match with Liverpool lately, when he won with a definite 4-0.
3 days ago she played totally relaxed with Southampton, registering the second consecutive external defeat.
Pep Guardila has a large team at his disposal and allows himself to rest the players by rotation.
In the last match, Gundogan, Stones, De Bruyne or Foden remained on the bench or entered from the reserve position.
Sergio Aguero is the only one absent from the hosts’ camp, still with knee problems. Compared to the previous match, Mendy, Walker, Gundogan, De Bruyne and Foden will start.
It is one of the fittest teams in England, undefeated in the last 8 official matches.
It is 16 points away from the first relegation position and is approaching the end of the championship with relaxation.
Until the interruption of the championship, he had an average of less than one goal per game scored.
He has visibly improved his percentage lately, managing to score 3 goals with Sheffield United, 4 with Bournemouth and two with West Ham.
Coach Steve Bruce will not be able to count on Longstaff, Lejeune, Clark and Hayden, all with injuries.
Saint Maximin is slightly injured, but it is hoped that he will be fully recovered by the time of the game.
▪️City definitely dominated the match in the tour, winning 2-0 through goals from De Bruyne and Sterling.
▪️Newcastle has always played bravely against “citizens” scoring 6 times in the last 5 direct matches.
⚽Manchester City vs Newcastle teams likely:

Football Prediction of the Day Manchester City vs Newcastle
Manchester City is extremely strong at the Etihad Stadium when matches are at stake.
This is not the case this time because Guardiola’s team has largely secured a place in the Champions League groups.
The citizens come after a defeat at Southampton 3 days ago, but there is no question of the fatigue of the players because half of the team will be changed.
Newcastle reached their goal with many stages before the end, play without pressure and have results beyond expectations.
I bet on goals from both sides taking into account the offensive strength of the hosts (the most prolific attack in the Premier League), but also their relaxation plus the excellent morale with which Newcastle approaches this duel.
