Newcastle moved out of the bottom three courtesy of a 3-2 win away to West Ham on Saturday. Before that, they had lost eight of their last nine. That should give Rafa Benitez’s side some confidence ahead of this daunting fixture.
Manchester City is storming their way to the title and has now won their last 17 Premier League matches in a row. They have kept clean sheets in four of their last six visits to St. James’ Park, to increase their chances of winning even further. With changes expected from both managers, it’s hard to predict outcomes during the hectic festive period, but it would be a shock if City didn’t pick up all three points and close in on Bayern Munich’s record of 19 straight wins in Europe’s top five league history.
