Manchester City will clash heads with Newcastle United at the Etihad on Sunday evening, hoping to pick up a positive result and maintain their position at the top of the Premier League table. The Magpies will be coming into the match on the back of a narrow 1-0 loss to Liverpool, whereas the Citizens recorded a disappointing 3-1 loss (6-5 on aggregate) to Real Madrid in the second leg of the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League.

Manchester City vs Newcastle United: Talking Tactics

Pep Guardiola will set his team up in a 4-3-3 formation with several tweaks from the last game as Kyle Walker looks likely to make his way back into the starting eleven. He will ask his players to keep maximum possession of the ball and facilitate the attack with enough clear cut chances to win the three points.

Eddie Howe will probably opt for a 4-3-3 formation and could instruct his men to defend the goal and try to capitalize on the counter.

Howe is expected to field the defensive duo of Jamaal Lascelles and Dan Burn at the heart of the Magpies’ backline. Their main objective would be to track and close down the potential openings the City front-men might create.

Manchester City Predicted XI

Ederson; Walker, Laporte, Dias, Zinchenko; Fernandinho, Gundogan, De Bruyne; Sterling, Grealish, Mahrez

Newcastle United Predicted XI

Dubravka; Krafth, Burn, Lascelles, Targett; Bruno, Shelvey, Joelinton; Murphy, Wood, Maximin.

Key Men

Manchester City

The Sky Blues will rely on the creativity of Grealish, Mahrez and Sterling as they look to collectively produce a winning performance over the weekend.

De Bryune will be tasked with creating chances for the attacking trio, whereas Ederson will be expected to make some solid stops at the back.

Newcastle United

Dubravka will have to give a strong performance at the back if Leeds are to keep a clean sheet in this game. Wood will carry most of the goal-scoring responsibility.

Joelinton will be tasked with distributing the ball efficiently and creating chances for the men up front.
