Manchester City Preview – Can Man City continue slow revival?

Boxing Day’s hosts, Manchester City, may be bringing a five-match unbeaten run in the Premier League into this clash with Newcastle United but Pep Guardiola’s side still sit in 8th place and find themselves eight points adrift of league leaders, Liverpool, heading into the festive period of fixtures.

Three wins out of these last five matches have seen Manchester City record wins against Burnley 5-0 and Fulham 2-0 both at home along with a 1-0 win away at Southampton last time out along with draws against Manchester United and West Brom.

Although City have lost just one of their six matches at home so far this season, the hosts have been mis-firing by their standards and have won with 4 or more goals scored in just one of these six which was the 5-0 win over Burnley.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Newcastle United Preview – Can Newcastle keep City close?

A 1-1 draw at home with Fulham last time out resulted in Newcastle United moving up the Premier League table into 12th place but the visitors have still only captured just two wins out of their last six matches overall in the top flight.

These wins came in the shape of a 2-0 win away at Crystal Palace and a 2-1 home win over West Brom but there’s also been inconsistent results away from home too as The Magpies have won, drawn and lost in equal measure to date.

Five of Newcastle’s six away matches to date have resulted in under 2.5 goals with the one exception being a 5-2 loss at Leeds United but they stand a chance of at least keeping the scoreline close on Boxing Day.
