Newcastle United vs Manchester City Prediction: Premier League Match on 14.05.2021
The newly crowned Premier League champions will be back in action on Friday evening, as they travel to St James’ Park to take on Newcastle United.
Premier League Preview
Manchester City have finally been crowned as Premier League champions. It always looked likely that Pep Guardiola’s side would be the ones to win the league title, but very few would have predicted that the title race would have gone down to the final ten days of the season. City were crowned champions after a much-changed Manchester United were beaten at Old Trafford by Leicester City. The Red Devils made ten changes as they looked ahead to the Europa League final at the end of the month. City will now be looking to end the season strongly, as they could potentially end the season with a tally of 89 points. City’s recent league form hasn’t been the strongest, as they have lost two of their previous four games. They will come into this game on the road looking to avenge their defeat against Chelsea last weekend.
The job is done for Newcastle United, as Steve Bruce has navigated the Magpies to safety in the Premier League. The Toon’s safety was confirmed after Fulham’s defeat to Burnley on Monday night, and the attention will now turn to the future. With very little to play for on Friday night, we could see Bruce play an attacking line-up for the second game on the bounce, as it worked extremely well against Leicester City last time out. Newcastle were 4-0 up against the Foxes in just over 70 minutes. Callum Wilson scored twice in the big win on the road, while Joe Willock and Paul Dummett were also among the scorers.
Newcastle United vs Manchester City Head To Head
Newcastle haven’t achieved much success against City in the recent meetings between the sides, as they have lost their last three in all competitions. The last two Premier League meetings has seen City score seven goals in total, while Newcastle have failed to score. However, the Magpies are unbeaten in their last two against City at St James’ Park.
Newcastle United vs Manchester City Prediction
Fixtures towards the end of the season can often be hard to predict. However, this should be one of the most straightforward. City have an excellent record against the Magpies, and should claim a routine win despite the number of changes that Guardiola is likely to make.
