Newcastle take on the league leaders having won for the first time in 10 league games on Saturday (D1, L8), while City are aiming for a remarkable 18 wins in a row.

Therefore it is no surprise to see Pep Guardiola’s men no bigger than 2/7 with Coral at St James’ Park, with Newcastle at 12/1 with Betfair and the draw 6/1 with Bet365.

The best hope for Rafa Benitez’s side is that Guardiola rests some of his big guns, taking into account the busy festive schedule, but it will still be a surprise if City do not equal the English top-flight record of 11 consecutive away victories.

City have scored 4 goals in each of their last 3 league games and at least twice in their last 12 league matches, while Newcastle have failed to score in 3 of their last 4 at home. Thus, we suggest backing 3-0 and 4-0 away wins here at best odds of 8/1 & 13/1 respectively with Betfair – plus Sergio Aguero to score first at 14/5 with Unibet.

Aguero has scored 9 goals his last five league games against Newcastle and can also be backed at best odds of 4/6 with Betfred to score a goal at any time in this game.
