Premier League 2023-24 gameweek 21 is set to be underway

Premier League action resumes with Newcastle United and Manchester City set to lock horns against each other at St. James’ Park on Saturday.

Following a challenging period preceding the Club World Cup, Pep Guardiola‘s team seems to be regaining momentum. With Kevin De Bruyne and Jeremy Doku back in action during their victory against Huddersfield, the defending champs Manchester City have secured two consecutive wins and might be heading to St James’ Park at an opportune moment.

Despite Newcastle United finding success under Eddie Howe‘s guidance, particularly at home, they suffered a defeat against Nottingham Forest on Boxing Day. Subsequently, they faced losses against Liverpool, although confidence may have been restored with their recent FA Cup triumph over Sunderland.

Now, their next task constitutes stopping the sea of Sky Blues!

Kick-off

Saturday, 13th January 2024, 5:30 PM GMT (11:00 PM IST)

Location: St. James’ Park

Form

Newcastle United (in the Premier League): L-W-L-L-L

Manchester City (in the Premier League): L-W-D-W-W

Players to watch for

Alexander Isak (Newcastle United)

The Swede has been scoring goals ‘casually’ and the one in the Liverpool loss was a live example of it. Alexander Isak has scored 9 Premier League goals this season, and Eddie Howe can only hope for his star man to rise to the occasion against their upcoming opponents.

Phil Foden (Manchester City)

In the absence of Kevin De Bruyne and Jeremy Doku, Phil Foden, along with Julian Alvarez, has built a stong faith in Pep’s eyes. And rightly so! He has 11 goal contributions in the Prem this season. Not just that, his darting runs forward have been creating problems for the opposing defenses.

Match facts

  • Newcastle have just won in their last 32 Premier League meetings against City.
  • City have scored in each of their last 30 games against Newcastle.

Injury and team news

Newcastle’s injury woes continue. Joelinton, Jacob Murphy, Sandro Tonali, Harvey Barnes, Joe Willock, Callum Wilson and Nick Pope will be unavailable. So, Eddie Howe might field similar playing XI to their win against Sunderland las time.

On the other hand, the away boss Guardiola has hinted Erling Haaland might feature after a long absence. De Bruyne and Doku are back, although John Stones is still injured. Bernardo Silva, however, is expected to recover from illness.

Head-to-head (in the Premier League)

Matches: 47

Newcastle: 8

Man City: 30

Draws: 9

Predicted lineups

Newcastle Predicted lineup (4-3-3)

Dubravka; Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn; Longstaff, Guimaraes, Miley; Almiron, Isak, Gordon

Manchester City Predicted lineup (4-2-3-1)

Ederson; Walker, Dias, Gvardiol, Ake; Kovacic, Rodri; De Bruyne, Foden, Doku; Alvarez

Match prediction for Newcastle United vs Manchester City

A win for City might be the most popular prediction all-around. But, the Magpies must not be taken lightly as they pose danger on the break to hurt any defense.

Prediction: Newcastle 1 – 3 Man City
