Newcastle play hosts to Manchester City at St James Park on Tuesday night in the Premier League, as the two teams aim for maximum points in their pursuit of very different goals this season.

Newcastle boosted their survival hopes with a 3-0 victory of Swansea at St James Park last time out. Goals from Jamaal Lascelles, Moussa Sissoko and Andros Townsend were enough to give the Magpies a vital victory.

The win means that the Magpies are now just three points behind Norwich who currently occupy 17th position, but it will be a major challenge for Rafa Benitez’s side to claim a win in this clash.

Manchester City also claimed a 3-0 win last time out, as the Citizens won at Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge. The win came courtesy of a superb hat-trick from Argentinian striker Sergio Aguero.

The win means that City remains four points clear of fifth-placed Manchester United in the hunt for a top four spot. Aguero has now scored 21 Premier League goals this season, despite missing a number of games through injury this season.

Facts And Figures

These two teams have met on 33 occasions in the Premier League with Manchester City recording 20 wins, Newcastle winning seven times and six games resulting in draws.

The 16 Premier League meetings at St James Park have been relatively close, as City have recorded eight wins, Newcastle six and two games have been drawn.

The visitors have beaten Newcastle in nine out of the last ten meetings in all competitions, with the Magpies winning the other game.

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has recorded six wins from seven meetings with the Magpies and suffered just one defeat.

Newcastle have won just one of their last eight Premier League games, but that win was last time out.

The Magpies have lost just one of their last five Premier League home games and have picked-up three wins in the process.

Manchester City have won their last three Premier League games and scored at least two goals in each of those wins.

Team Selection And News

Newcastle are still out goalkeepers Tim Krul and Rob Elliot through injury and are joined on the sidelines by Fabricio Coloccini, Massadio Haidara and Steven Taylor. Full-back Darryl Janmaat is also a major doubt through injury.

The Magpies may name an unchanged eleven from the one that started the victory over Swansea last time out.

For the visitors captain Vincent Kompany and winger Raheem Sterling are both currently sidelined through injury, while full-back Gael Clichy and attacking midfielders David Silva and Samir Nasri are major doubts for the clash.

Possible Newcastle Team Selection

Darlow, Anita, Mbemba, Lascelles, Dummett, Tiote, Colback, Townsend, Sissoko, Wijnaldum, Cisse

Possible Manchester City Team Selection

Hart, Zabaleta, Otamendi, Mangala, Kolarov, Fernandinho, Toure, Navas, De Bruyne, Nasri, Aguero

Match Prediction

Newcastle’s spirits will have been lifted by the rare win against Swansea last time out, but Manchester City seem to have found form, especially Aguero, and I believe the Citizens will have enough quality to see off the Magpies.
