Could Manchester City actually have an even better season than last term? This highly successful team were able to enjoy triumphs in the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup to announce themselves as one of the most successful sides of all time, although they would dearly love to win a quartet of trophies this time around.

There’s been a strong start to their Premier League campaign where they are already odds-on to claim this title for the sixth time in seven seasons, while they are the favourites to win the European Cup again. However, the EFL Cup is a trophy that they have been accustomed to winning and perhaps they will be making multiple trips to Wembley this time around.

The clash at Newcastle is hardly ideal timing and both managers are likely to field understrength teams for the encounter. When you consider that Nathan Ake, Rico Lewis, Kalvin Phillips and Matheus Nunes were on the bench for a recent clash at West Ham, with Jack Grealish and Mateo Kovacic also set to come back into the team.

When the teams clashed at St James’ Park last season in the Premier League, it was an entertaining affair that ended in a 3-3 scoreline. Perhaps we’ll see something similar this time around and it could be worth plumping for lots of goals to be scored rather than hazard a prediction for which side will win.
