View our Betting Preview, Tips, Predictions and Match Odds for the game which can be seen Live on Sky Sports 1 High Definition with a scheduled 17:30pm (GMT) Kick Off Time.

Manchester City v Newcastle United Preview, Premiership, Saturday 21st February 2015

Manchester City head into this game having only managed to win just one of their last previous league matches played and this has seen Chelsea stretch their lead at the top to 7pts and there really can’t be any more slip ups for Manuel Pellegrini’s side if they are to stay in contention of winning the title.

Newcastle United have also managed just one victory in their last five league matches and as a result have started to slip down the league table and are now 13pts away from securing a European place for next season and although this game on Sunday evening represents a tough test for John Carver’s side, they will no doubt be quietly confident of causing an upset as they did beat Manchester City in their last visit to the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City Team News:

Yaya Toure and Wilfried Bony are now both available having returned back from the African Cup of Nations and both could feature from the start depending on whether striker Sergio Aguero passes a late fitness test on a back problem he picked up in the 4-1 victory against Stoke City last time out.

Newcastle United Team News:

Cheick Tioté joins Siem de Jong, Rolando Aarons, Steven Taylor, Rob Elliot and Paul Dummett on the casualty list and all remain unavailable for this game along with Jonas Gutierrez who is still lacking match fitness. Ryan Taylor is a doubt and will under take a late fitness test to see if he can be involved.

Manchester City v Newcastle United Head to Head Statistics:

Sunday evening’s game from the Etihad Stadium will become the 136th meeting between the two clubs over the years. Manchester City have won 51 overall with 35 having come with home advantage, whereas Newcastle United have won 52 overall, with 13 having come at the Etihad Stadium.

Our head to head statistics table below shows the last five meetings between the two clubs over recent seasons and as we can see it has been Manchester City who have dominated, winning four times compared to Newcastle United having won just the once.

Previous Average Goals Per Game Statistics

376 Goals have been scored in the previous 135 games played between the two clubs overall and this provides us with an average goals per game statistic of 2.78.

183 of those Goals have been scored in the previous 67 matches played at the Etihad Stadium between both clubs and this generates us an average goal scoring statistic for this game of 2.73.

Looking at both sets of data above, it would seem to indicate that we should see between 2 or 3 goals scored in this game on Sunday evening.

Manchester City v Newcastle United Match Betting Odds Market

Manchester City are the clear odds on favourites to win this game and are currently a best price of just 3/10 with Betfred – Bet £10 & Receive £30 Free Bets for New Customers, which does look a bit on the short side considering their recent form.

The Draw is not a result that has happened that often when these two sides have met each other over the years, but for those that think this game can finish all square can enjoy a best price of 5/1 with Bet365 – £200 Matched Bonus Bets for New Customers.

Newcastle United have had a major dip in form recently and with some key players unavailable due to injury, I really can’t see them being good enough to win this game and their current best price of 12/1 with BetVictor – £25 Free Bets for New Customers, does seem to reflect that.

Manchester City v Newcastle United Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

I expect Manchester City to win this game on Saturday evening, but how easy this victory is going to be will depend on whether or not Sergio Aguero passes his late fitness test and starts this match, as if not then I would only expect the hosts to narrowly win this game.

Newcastle United have a number of players injured and unavailable for this game and that could be the telling factor for me as their current squad of players that are available just don’t look good enough to go to the Etihad Stadium and return with anything.

The average goals per game statistics are expecting a close game with 2 or 3 goals being the predicted number seen grace the back of the nets on Sunday evening in front of the Sky Sports Camera’s and this does seem to be the stand out wager for this game as four of the last five matches have seen this betting market being successful and will be my Banker prediction.

My Saver is going to be for Ya Ya Toure to Score at Anytime as he has a very good record of scoring goals against Newcastle United with five in his last six appearances against them and those statistics look very good along with his current best price available from Betfred who offer all new customers registering an account £30 Free Bets to get you started.
