Many expected Manchester City to go through the entire season without a single domestic defeat to their name although while their weekend defeat to Liverpool could have been far worse, they can no longer be considered invincibles. Indeed the Citizens were trailing 4-1 at Anfield with just six minutes left to play and late goals courtesy of Bernardo Silva and Ilkay Gundogan were enough to give Liverpool the jitters heading into stoppage time.

City will certainly be happier given that they avoided a thrashing on Merseyside and they still reign supreme at the top of the Premier League table, therefore we don't for a second believe that they will slip-up in front of their home fans when Newcastle United come to town on Saturday evening.

Pep Guardiola's men aren't going to suffer a mid-season collapse and they can demonstrate this in emphatic fashion when they underline their excellent home form with a convincing win over the Magpies this weekend. Indeed the best that the visitors can hope for is to frustrate the home side in a similar manner to that which helped them hold City to a single-goal margin at St James' Park in their last meeting, Raheem Sterling scoring the only goal on that occasion.

Rafael Benitez's side have collected six points from their last two games on the road, however this will prove to be a much better test than West Ham United and Stoke City and given that the Magpies failed to beat rock-bottom Premier League side Swansea City at the weekend, we don't expect them to hold the Citizens at bay this weekend. This may not be a hugely one-sided affair by any means given that Newcastle only lost by a single goal at the Emirates Stadium last month, however we would be shocked were City to slip-up again and we'll be siding with the hosts to win on Saturday evening with under 3.5 goals being scored at the Etihad Stadium.
