Newcastle away is one of the biggest non-big six tests in the Premier League
Manchester United, their rivals from across the city, are the only other team to have done so since the top flight of English soccer was rebranded in 1992. It will not be easy, but Pep Guardiola’s side are once again widely fancied to finish on top of the pile this term. Their confident start to the season has only strengthened their status as favorites.
The 4-0 triumph over Bournemouth last time out was similarly routine. This time Haaland did not take center stage, with Ilkay Gundogan, Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden getting on the scoresheet (as did Bournemouth’s Jefferson Lerma, who scored an own goal). City were typically fluent in possession, energetic without it and dominant in virtually every aspect of the game. A 4-0 win in these sort of matches is simply par for the course as far as City are concerned.
Now looking at Newcastle, Eddie Howe and co were not at their best last weekend, when they were somewhat fortunate to draw 0-0 with Brighton & Hove Albion. The Seagulls were the better team at the Amex Stadium and created more goal scoring opportunities, but Newcastle escaped with a clean sheet and a share of the spoils. Still, it was a decent result away from home following on from their dominant display in a 2-0 victory over Nottingham Forest seven days earlier.
