Manchester City v Newcastle United Football Match – 30.03.2013 – Premier League Preview, Prediction, Squad
Manchester City v Newcastle United football match will be played on 30.03.2013 at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester for a Premier League match. Neil Swarbrick will be the referee for this match.
Man City are currently second in the Premier League table with 59 points, 15 points behind leaders Manchester United and just 4 points in front of Chelsea. It is very likely that they will finish in the top 4 this season and qualify for next seasons UEFA Champions League. Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal will be the teams that will give them pressure. Man City will be hoping to close the gap between Man United but are very unlikely to over take them and win back to back Premier League titles.
Man City’s form hasn’t been that good recently, they drew with Liverpool 2-2 playing at home, lost to Southampton playing away with a 3-1 scoreline then beat Chelsea 2-0 at home, lost to Aston Villa 0-1 playing away and just recently lost to Everton 2-0 playing away. Their current form suggests that they are struggling to keep hold of the 2nd position. If they continue to drop points, they might slip to 3rd, 4th or even below the top 4 UEFA Champions league qualifying spots, but this is very unlikely.
Manchester Citys key players are Joe Hart, Carlos Tevez, Sergio Aguero and David Silva. They will be the most important players to watch out for in this match.
Newcastle currently sit in 13th position with 33 points. They have been really poor this season compared to last season where they managed 5th position above Chelsea who were in 6th position. Alan Pardew’s team are not in good form recently, they beat Chelsea 3-2 at home in early February but after that, they lost to Tottenham Hotspur 2-1, Swansea 1-0 and Wigan 2-1all playing away. but managed wins against, Southampton and Stoke at home.
I predict this match will be tough for Newcastle, mainly because they are playing away and their away form has been really poor. Manchester City on the other hand will be hoping to stay in 2nd position and try to close the gap between them and leaders Man United. I predict a 3-1 win for Man City as they are technically a stronger side playing at home.
The match will begin on March 30, 2013 3:00 PM GMT
Match Prediction: Man City. Correct Score 3-1
