Newcastle v Man City odds, betting news & free bets – Manchester City nailed on at 4/6

Published

Manchester City visit Newcastle with the latest odds, betting news and free bets as Man City look banker material at 4/6 with Paddy Power.

Newcastle United will look to end a dire run of 10 consecutive losses against Manchester City when the pair met on Sunday.

No Premier League side have added more players this summer than Newcastle United, who have enjoyed a much better transfer window than a year ago.

Siem De Jong, Remy Cabella and Daryl Janmaat are excellent signings as Alan Pardew looks to build on last campaigns top half finish.

By Manchester City’s standards, they have had a relatively quiet transfer window, despite spending over £50million.

Eliaquim Mangala and Fernando have arrived from FC Porto, whilst Bacary Sagna arrived on a free transfer from Arsenal.

Manchester City did the double over Newcastle United last season, ironically beating them on the first day of the 2013/14 campaign too.

The 4-0 win at the Etihad was Manuel Pellegrini’s first game in charge of the club, in what was an excellent first season in English football.

City also won twice at St. James’s Park last season, winning both games 2-0 in the Premier League and Capital One Cup.

Team news
New signing de Jong may well not be fit enough to make his league debut against the champions.

Cabella is likely to play just off the striker, with Hatem Ben Arfa frozen out by Pardew after a clash of personalities.

Massaido Haidara looks set to start from left-back, after an injury hit start to life at St. James’s Park.

Emmanuel Riviere will lead the line, with Shola Ameobi leaving the club on a free transfer over the summer.

Manchester City have a selection dilemma over numerous players who featured heavily at the 2014 World Cup.

Pablo Zabaleta, Martin Demichelis, Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho all went far at the competition and haven’t trained much.

Stevan Jovetic has enjoyed an excellent pre-season and will lead the line with Edin Dzeko, with Alvaro Negredo injured.

Sagna’s debut may have to wait, after he only trained for a week, with Gael Clichy set to start at right back.

Joe Hart and Willy Caballero will battle it out to start in goal, with Pellegrini set to keep faith with the Englishmen.

Newcastle (4-4-1-1): Krul, Janmaat, Coloccini, Williamson, Haidara, Sissoko, Colback, Anita, Gouffran, Cabella, Riviere
Manchester City (4-2-2-2): Hart, Clichy, Nastasic, Kompany, Kolarov, Fernando, Toure, Silva, Nasri, Jovetic, Dzeko
