Newcastle vs Manchester City EFL prediction
After a fairly successful midweek trip to Milan in their Group E opener that ended goalless, Newcastle turned on the jets on their Premier League return at Bramall Lane, with a Premier League record eight different scorers in their 8-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday. The fixtures are now coming in fast and furious and they will have a short turnaround as they turn their attention to the EFL Cup with league leaders Manchester City coming to town. Coach Eddie Howe will be hoping that his charges will carry some of the momentum from the weekend game into this one but he will be too aware of the onerous task they face against the City juggernaut
Manchester City remained perfect in the defence of their EPL title as they picked up a routine 2-0 home win over Nottingham at the weekend – their 13th consecutive PL win at the Etihad. First-half goals from Rodri and Haaland put the game away and although they were reduced to 10 men early in the 2nd half, they were never really in trouble and saw the game off with ease for their sixth win in six EPL matches this season. Pep has got his squad fired up and ready to go across all fronts as they had shown in their midweek Champions League game.
While the hosts have shown flashes of their potential in spurts this season and their growth over the last couple of seasons, they are still not at City’s level. The Magpies will be cheered by a capacity crowd at St James’ Park but City remain perfect across all competitions and this will be their biggest test of the season. We expect an end-to-end game but we are backing the visitors to get the better of the hosts and we are going for a 1-3 correct score for City as our main Newcastle vs Manchester City prediction here

Main tip: Correct Score 1-3
Our Newcastle vs Manchester City predictions
According to the statistics and the odds of the bookmakers, we suggest the following tips:
Prediction 1: Correct Score 1-3
Newcastle will give it their all here considering they will be playing in front of their home fans. The 8-0 win at Sheffield has certainly re-energised their campaign and given them impetus that they badly needed after blowing hot and cold to start the season.
Having said that, Man City is a different animal right now. They are playing by far the best football in the league and will be a tough opponent on any given day. There will be chances either way but we feel City have much more quality. As such we are backing Man City to win this game with a correct score of 1-3 with terrific odds for this option offered at 1xBet.

Prediction 2: Over 2.5 Goals
Both teams are in great scoring form at the moment. Newcastle just pumped in 8 goals at the weekend, City meantime have scored at least 2 goals in their last 6 straight matches across all competitions. Looking at the H2H, 4 of their last 6 encounters have had at least 3 goals scored. With both of these teams keen on this trophy, we anticipate a closely contested game that should witness quite a few goals. As such, we are backing at least three goals to be scored in this match with great odds for this available at Melbet.

Prediction 3: Over 9.5 Corners
With both teams expected to have a go at each other, we anticipate an end-to-end encounter here that should see a lot of goalmouth action. 4 of Newcastle’s last 5 home games have had at least 10 corners. For the visits, all their last 5 straight away matches have crossed that milestone, with City themselves as a team having 11 and 12 team corners in their last two away matches. With this in mind, for our final Newcastle vs Man City prediction, we are backing at least 10 corners to be taken @ 1.80 at Melbet
