However, it won't be an easy contest for Man City as Newcastle are also looking to present their loyal fans with maximum points and despite recent home defeat over Arsenal, The Magpies have shown their ability in causing trouble for other big teams. The host will once again give their all as they obviously acknowledge that their opponent do possess strong individual qualities, which an easily decide the outcome of any matches.
Man City eventually grabbing maximum points from that weekend tie as they snatched a 2-0 victory over their opponent and temporarily getting themselves into the top of Premier League standings. The away side got themselves in front after just eight minutes of play through an effort from Edin Dzeko. That slender lead lasted until late into the tie, before the in form Spanish international, Alvaro Negredo sealed all three points for his side with his late effort deep in stoppage time.
