Newcastle v Man City: Pep’s men to silence the Toon Army

| 27.12.2017

Is this Manchester City team on course to be the best in Premier League history?

We’ll go another step towards answering that question when they head to Newcastle United tonight.

Pep Guardiola’s Citizens have won a record 17 successive Premier League matches.

Our traders make them 1/4 favourites to go 18 tonight. Rafa Benitez’s Magpies are 12/1, with the Draw available at 11/2.

City are showing no sign of slowing down anytime soon. They’ve scored four goals in each of their last three league games.

And they’ll be further buoyed after hearing that Manchester United dropped points at home to Burnley yesterday.

Backing City on the -2 handicap is 31/20. That market has already paid out on the Blues eight times this season.

And looking back over the head-to-heads, City have scored two or more in 13 of the last 14 league games against the Toon.

Newcastle claimed a vital win at West Ham United last time out, but it’s hard to see the Geordie side achieving much here.

Benitez simply doesn’t have the squad to cope with City, and their home form has nosedived.

They’ve lost their last four games. And that was against Everton, Leicester City, Bournemouth and Watford.

Sergio Aguero has been starting – and delivering – for Guardiola recently. The Argentine ace netted twice in City’s win over Bournemouth last weekend.

It’s hard to drop him right now, and loves a goal versus the Newcastle. He’s scored 11 times in 10 appearances against the Magpies – his best return versus any side.

Aguero is 5/2 favourite to net the opener, 6/10 anytime and 23/10 for another brace.

Raheem Sterling is another man in form. The England international is enjoying the best year of his career, and scored his 12th league goals of the season versus the Cherries.

Our traders make the former Liverpool man 7/2 to score first and 11/10 anytime.
