Manchester City welcome Newcastle United to the Etihad Stadium hoping to inflict more pressure on Rafa Benitez. Newcastle have picked up just a solitary point from the three league matches this season, as the Magpies come under criticism for multiple decisions. Manchester City no longer possess a 100% record in the Premier League 2018-19 campaign, but the blues are just two points behind the top. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Manchester City could only manage a 1-1 draw with Wolves during the weekend, but it was not down to the lack of a strong performance from Guardiola’s men. City hit the woodwork on several occasions but were unable to find a way past the newly promoted team.
Newcastle lost a home game against Chelsea despite going with an ultra-defensive approach. The 2-1 loss against Maurizio Sarri’s men is the third defeat in four competitive matches for Newcastle.
The recent game between City and Newcastle took place at Etihad Stadium with the hosts getting a comfortable 3-1 win. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Manchester City.

Newcastle are given a whopping price of 21.00 to win the game. Newcastle’s last success at Etihad Stadium was only back in 2014, but they are significantly weaker compared to this Manchester City outfit. Guardiola’s team are immensely strong against tactics of different kinds. Against Wolves, City could have claimed a victory with a little more luck. As it stands, the club will be looking to get back on winning ways and they have had a full week to prepare for the match unlike Newcastle, who were involved in the midweek League Cup action. Our preview would choose a win for Manchester City.

Manchester City vs Newcastle United draw odds: 9.00
Newcastle United win odds: 21.00
Correct Score odds
Manchester City remain one of the best-attacking teams in the division by a huge margin. Even after a return of just one goal against Wolves, City find themselves leading the scoring charts already with nine league goals. Newcastle are at the other end of the table with just two goals. Despite Newcastle’s defensive tactics, our correct score prediction expects a Manchester City 3-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
This match is a strong contender for experiencing several goals – even if Newcastle may put 10 men behind the ball and go with the same ultra-defensive approach as in the game against Chelsea. Past meetings between City and Newcastle have produced several goals. Our total goals prediction would go with more of the same.

First Goalscorer odds
Sergio Aguero has been able to get 14 goals in just nine games against Newcastle and he has scored more goals against the Magpies than any other team. Despite failing to score in games apart from the thrashing against Huddersfield, our first goalscorer prediction would back Sergio Aguero.
