Newcastle United vs. Manchester City
Sunday, January 12th, 15:05 CET
Newcastle United must have seen Manchester City’s latest result against West Ham United, but Alan Pardew’s team still expects to have a good match against Manchester City.
This Sunday, January 12th, the team who chases after Arsenal and the top spot in Premier League will seek to enrichen their scoring ability against the team who so far has been in excellent form, but lost the last two matches.
For both teams to score is a rather popular market, even though in their last three head to head meeting, only Man City scored. The Manchester side is unbeaten in their last nine matches, five out of which have been straight wins. Their leading goalscorer, Sergio Aguero is missing because of an injury, so these abilities might be transferred towards Alvaro Negredo and Yaya Toure.
Newcastle are sporting injuries of their own. Their goalkeeper, Tim Krul has missed the latest FA Cup clash of his side, and is doubtful for this derby. Yohan Cabaye is also under question, while Taylor and Coloccini will for sure miss the match as they are both out with knee injuries.
The spot where Manchester City won’t have problems is in the midfield, where David Silva is again expected to work his magic, and maybe aid his side to win to nil? Newcastle will have an ace of their own in the face of Loic Remy who is supposed to get past the defense and score against Hart by being the anytime goalscorer preferred by the majority of the bookmakers.
