Off the back of contrasting results in two different cup competitions, Manchester City and also Newcastle United lock horns at the Etihad Arena for a Premier League clash on Saturday lunch.

While the Magpies are seeking to recover from their EFL Cup last heartache last weekend, the People will be wanting to build on their comfortable FA Mug fifth-round success in midweek.

Manchester City finished their run of five succeeding away games unbeaten when they eased to a 3-0 triumph at Bristol City in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Tuesday, courtesy of a Phil Foden support and a late strike from Kevin De Bruyne.

The People-- that have actually set up a quarter-final connection with Vincent Kompany's Burnley later on this month-- had previously cruised to a 4-1 win away against Bournemouth in the Premier League to ensure that they stay in touch with leaders Collection in the title race.

The ruling champs still have some reaching do, however, as they stay 5 points behind the Gunners with 13 games to play, while in-form opponents Manchester United are searching them down in 3rd, sitting six factors better back with a game in hand.

Adhering to an extensive duration far from the Etihad Stadium, Pep Guardiola's side will invite a return to home dirt, with four of the following 5 matches to be used the blue side of Manchester consisting of Saturday's encounter Newcastle, who the Citizens have actually beaten in each of their last 13 Premier League home conferences-- only Everton against Fulham (14) have actually ever before had a much longer winning crowning achievement against a challenger in the division.

The Citizens have actually also scored a total of 41 organization goals on residence dirt up until now this term, more than any other team in England's top-four departments.

Guardiola's side must have couple of issues locating the net versus Newcastle, as they have scored in each of their previous 28 organization conferences with the Magpies, but keeping the sphere out of the web might verify difficult having actually maintained just 3 clean sheets in their last 16 top-flight matches, a surprisingly inadequate run of form on the defensive front that needs to be dealt with if they wish to shut down Arsenal at the summit.

Newcastle fans have had plenty to applaud regarding this period and also the Toon Army remained in complete voice as their side required to the Wembley pitch for the first time because 1999 for Sunday's EFL Cup last.

Nonetheless, hopes of raising their initial significant domestic trophy for 68 years were subdued through Man United, who came out on top to protect a 2-0 triumph courtesy of first-half strikes from Casemiro and also Marcus Rashford.

The euphoria of raising flatware could have served as a driver to transform their recent league type about, however Eddie Howe has actually firmly insisted that their mug last heartache will certainly not influence their efforts to promote Champions Organization credentials.

Newcastle have just recently slipped out of the top four complying with a run of just one win in their last seven Premier Organization matches, as well as they are currently charged with ending a four-game winless run with a journey to Male City, a component that Howe has actually classified as the "most tough in the football schedule".

Not considering that the days of Bobby Robson and also Alan Shearer have the Magpies won a league video game on the blue side of Manchester, with the last netting the only goal in a 1-0 success back in September 2001 at Maine Roadway-- Erling Braut Haaland's papa Alfe-Inge Haaland also played because match for the People.

Despite their recent form, Newcastle will have factor to be confident on Saturday as they have actually not lost any one of their last 8 top-flight away suits, while they played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Male City at St James' Park earlier this season, a contest that they were leading 3-1 before Haaland and also Bernardo Silva brought back parity in the final half-hour.

First-choice goalkeeper Ederson-- that is just one far from recording his 100th Premier Organization tidy sheet-- is readied to be recalled in between the sticks, while Rico Lewis might shed his location at right-back to Kyle Pedestrian despite remaining to excite when chosen in the first team.

Kalvin Phillips was handed simply his second start of the period at Bristol City considering that joining the People last summer, yet he is most likely to be changed by Rodri on Saturday, while either Bernardo Silva or Ilkay Gundogan might likewise be handed a start in centre-midfield along with De Bruyne.

After being rested in midweek, Haaland is expected to lead the line at the cost of Julian Alvarez, while Foden-- who has now scored three objectives in his last 2 video games-- is wishing to sign up with either Riyad Mahrez or Jack Grealish in the front 3.

When it comes to Newcastle, goalkeeper Nick Pope will return after serving a one-match ban for the EFL Mug last, with Loris Karius either dropping down to the replacements' bench or out of the squad.

Anthony Gordon was cup-tied for the EFL Cup last, but the January signing is readily available to return on Saturday as well as will likely press Allan Saint-Maximin for a begin on the left flank.

Emil Krafth (ACL) is Newcastle's only injury absentee, while Bruno Guimaraes ought to shake off a small ankle joint concern grabbed at Wembley and begin in centre-midfield together with Sean Longstaff and also Joelinton-- Joe Willock is another in opinion for a midfield beginning berth after recovering from a thigh trouble.

We claim: Manchester City 3-1 Newcastle United
While there have actually been no more than 2 goals racked up in 10 of Newcastle's last 12 suits across all competitors, the web surged on 6 celebrations the last time that they faced Man City, and even more goalmouth action could be on the cards on Saturday.

The Magpies will be eager to respond with a durable performance at the Etihad, yet they may battle to take care of a title-chasing People side who have actually looked much more like their medical selves in the last two video games.
