Manchester City have a hectic fixture schedule once again, although there is plenty to recommend them to land another treble this season. They have progressed nicely in the FA Cup and Champions League along with maintaining a Premier League title assault, with Pep Guardiola potentially giving some of his leading lights the night off for this clash.

For a recent Manchester derby, we saw the likes of Julian Alvarez, Manuel Akanji, Josep Gvardiol and Rico Lewis on the bench, with the quartet all likely to get a start in this game along with Jack Grealish providing that the latter is fit. It looks likely that Newcastle will be at full-strength in their quest for silverware.

Newcastle have not quite hit the same notes as last season when they were able to finish fourth in the Premier League and qualify for the Champions League. The big concern has been the team’s away form where they have won just three of their thirteen clashes at St James’ Park and a leaky defence has led to twenty-nine goals conceded on the road.

The best bet of the match could be Manchester City to win and both teams to score, with Newcastle potentially playing their part in an entertaining clash. It’s hard to stop the Cityzens in their tracks considering that they have so many goals in the team, even if Pep Guardiola potentially rests Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne in this one.
