Newcastle United vs Manchester City A cracking win for United at home to Cardiff last weekend but they are likely to find champions City a much different proposition back at St James’s Park. The Magpies are without a win in their last 22 Premier League games against City and it is hard to see them bucking that trend with the champions in such good form at present. One for the statisticians – this will be Pep Guardiola’s 100th PL game in charge of City – they have won 73 of the previous 99 games. The record for Premier League wins in their opening 100 games currently stands at 73 with Jose Mourinho equal with City’s Spanish manager. I feel it will be a record-breaking Premier League midweek for the managers of both Manchester giants. Source: Daily Post

What is happening with the Magpies is a sorry state of affairs. Although I can understand why the majority of their supporters are behind manager Rafa Benitez, I do not understand why he would come out after their defeat against a Watford side who made 11 changes and say his squad is not strong enough for a FA Cup run. Why not have a go? He is risking losing some of those fans, because he has sent out a message of total negativity. Only Newcastle could try and sign Romelu Lukaku's brother, and then have him fail a medical. It is unlucky for him but it just sums up the whole situation at the club. There is a huge gap between these sides, and it is perhaps best illustrated by their goal power. City have scored 28 goals in their past six matches, while Newcastle have taken all season to hit 25 in 27 games. I get the feeling that if Benitez could play 10 centre-backs and a goalkeeper, he would do for this game, although I am not sure it would do any good. Source: BBC
