Man City vs Newcastle Prediction: Last Game Analysis

Man City:It was an easy affair for Man City to hammer Bournemouth in the last match. Although Haaland missed scoring, 4 goals were enough to seal a comfortable win for the Citizens. It was Gundogan who opened the goal-scoring sheet for City and by the end of the first half, they already had a lead of 3 goals. An own goal from Lerma ended the tough afternoon for the Cherries.

Newcastle United:It was not a good game for the Magpies as they failed to score a single in their own stadium. However, a powerful set of midfield attackers were enough to trouble the Seagulls. The goalless draw in an away game against Brighton might have boosted to side’s confidence. A win in that match would have been great but Newcastle can keep trusting themselves and go ahead with full energy against Man City on Sunday.
