Newcastle United – Manchester City
Newcastle United hosts Manchester City at the St. James’ Park in a game from the Premier League’s third round. Stay with us and our winning soccer bets for this fixture.
Let’s start with the hosts here. Newcastle are unbeaten since the start of the 2022/23 season – one win and one draw. They also kept clean sheets in these two matches so they still hadn’t concede any goals, too. That’s impressive from the manager Eddie Howe and his boys.
Last week the Magpies paid a visit to Brighton & Hove Albion where they won a point with a 0-0 draw. We can say that Newcastle made a good performance, but they lacked the killer instinct in attack to win the game. Jacob Murphy and Chris Woods entered the pitch in the second half but their appearance didn’t lead to a goal.
Manchester City are leading the standings after the first two rounds – they won both of their matches so far. Just like Newcastle, they kept two clean sheets, but also scored six goals in the last 180 minutes of soccer action.
Last week the champions hosted AFC Bournemouth and enjoyed a stunning 4-0 win at the Etihad. Ilkay Gundogan, Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden scored in the first half while Bournemouth’s Jefferson Lerma scored himself an own goal after the break.
Man City’s manager Pep Guardiola is usually rotating his line-up so that’s what we expect to see on Sunday as well. The new signing Julian Alvarez could make his first appearance as a starter while Bernardo Silva and Jack Grealish are also options for the starting eleven. Meanwhile John Stones could return in defense.
That’s the winning soccer bets for the Premier League showdown between Newcastle United and Manchester City. Both teams kept two clean sheets in the first two rounds and this one looks interesting. Let’s see.
