Newcastle United vs Manchester City – English Premier League – Preview

Posted on by Sreya

Newcastle United hosts Manchester City at St. James Park on 19th April, Tuesday as the visitors push for a second-place finish in the English Premier League. Newcastle United are firmly entrenched in the relegation zone with twenty eight points from their thirty three games.

With Sunderland in eighteenth position and Norwich on seventeenth position, two and three points ahead of Newcastle respectively, Rafael Benitez’s side need all but a miracle to stay up in the top flight.

Manchester City, meanwhile, are on the third position with sixty points, five behind Tottenham Hotspur. Although Leicester City are firmly out of reach, Manchester City are aiming to usurp Spurs for a top two finish, all the while ensuring Arsenal do not catch up with them.

Manchester City defeated the defending Champions Chelsea on Saturday by a 3-0 scoreline courtesy a hattrick from Sergio Aguero. Newcastle United also returned to winning ways after seven games due to a 3-0 victory over Swansea City.

Newcastle United have as many as nine players sidelined with injuries, which includes Tim Krul, Ivan Toney, Massadio Haidara, Curtis Good, Robert Elliot, Kevin Mbabu, Fabricio Coloccini, Daryl Janmaat and Steven Taylor.
