Newcastle take on the visitors Manchester City in the round 3 match of English Premier League. The match will be played on Sunday, August 21st at St. James Park (Newcastle).
Newcastle had experienced a very dramatic last season. And in every sense. Then there's the magical transformation under Eddie Howe, when the hopeless underdog, who had barely won until Christmas, ended up finishing in the middle of the table. And, most importantly, the emergence of new owners. Instead of the frankly greedy Mike Ashley, the richest owners from the royal family of Saudi Arabia came. They spent a lot of money on winter reinforcement, which was an important factor in saving the Premier League. And now they continue to spend money on newcomers, albeit not on the scale that the fans might have dreamed of. The manager goes the other way, he requests and receives a point gain. Both Targett, and Botman, and Pope - they are all already playing and helping the "magpies" not to concede. True, if over the newcomer, Nottingham Forest, the Magpies managed to win, then on the Brighton field last Saturday the team limited themselves to a goalless draw.

Manchester city managed to win the Premier League last season - once again. But it is unlikely that Pep Guardiola was completely satisfied only with the fact that he again won this race against Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool. After all, in parallel, the “citizens” suffered several painful failures in the spring, both in the cup and, especially, in the Champions League. And after the holidays they started from 1-3 in the FA Super Cup. This trophy is not particularly quoted, but they lost it to the Reds. However, the start of the Premier League clearly cheered up the ambitious club. There were 2 wins. The hyped Erling Haaland flashed with West Ham, soring a brace. Against Bournemouth, the Norwegian limited himself to only the 1st assist, but it was the one that allowed Gundogan open the score. Then Foden and De Bruyne alternately assisted each other, and in the end it all ended 4-0. City are already at the top of the standings, only them and Arsenal go without a loss of points.
Starting from 2020, Newcastle cannot even catch on for a draw in head-to-heads. Manchester City are currently on a 6-game winning streak. Bookmakers have no doubts that Manchester City will win, the question is how big it will be. But taking into account the fact that both clubs have not conceded yet, it is worth paying attention to the “total under 3.5 goals”.
Prediction for the match: Under 3.5 scored goals.
