Newcastle United Preview

Newcastle’s nine-game winless streak across all competitions ended at the weekend as they won 2-3 on the road at West Ham. Overall, Newcastle have only won three of their last 15 games in the Premier League. The Magpies currently lie 15th in the league table tied on 18 points with the 16th-placed Crystal Palace, just two points clear of the bottom three. Their recent home form has also been a problem as they have suffered defeats in each of their last four home games in the Premier League, scoring just two goals in the process. Furthermore, Newcastle are winless in their last ten home meetings with Manchester City across all competitions, losing seven in the process. Head-to-head, Newcastle are winless in their last three meetings with City in the Premier League, but they did well to secure a 1-1 draw in the most recent game between them. Dwight Gayle and Joselu have been Newcastle’s most prolific players in front of goal so far this season, scoring three goals each.

Gabriel Jesus has also helped the team with eight goals and two assists in his 16 league appearances. Away from home, Manchester City have won nine of their last ten games across all competitions, scoring at least two goals in seven of these.
