Betting Tip: Man City -1.00 @ 7/5 with bet365

The Toon Army haven’t had much cause for celebration this season / decade / millennium although Saturday’s 3-0 win against Swansea City has given them a lifeline.

Newcastle now trail 17th place Norwich by three points with a game in hand and that match in question takes place against one of the best teams in the land.

Perhaps Manchester City would have been champions if Vincent Kompany, Raheem Sterling and Kevin de Bruyne had stayed fit all season although if my auntie had bollocks, she’d be my uncle.

What’s certainly true is that Manuel Pellegrini is getting a tune out of his players as we approach the end of the season.

The Chilean has behaved with dignity despite knowing that Pep Guardiola is house hunting in Manchester right now, with City through to the Champions League semis and focused on landing a top four spot in the Premier League.

Saturday’s 3-0 win at Stamford Bridge was inspired by De Bruyne who has been amazing since his return from injury, with Sergio Aguero thriving on the service provided.

There’s a big gulf in quality between these sides and, although Newcastle are fighting for their lives, it could be too much for United to get something against such high-calibre opponents.

City’s last two away matches in the Premier League have been won by 4-0 and 3-0 scorelines, so we’ll go for another hefty victory at the expense of the Magpies.
