Reigning champions Manchester City will clash against Newcastle United on Saturday night at the Etihad in their second game of the Premier League 2023-24. The Cityzens are on an all-time high, winning trophy after trophy. Their recent heroics came at the UEFA Super Cup, where they defeated Europa Champions Sevilla on penalties in Greece. Their season opener in the league was also a thumping win against Vincent Kompany’s recently promoted Burnley FC, where Haaland impressed with a brace and sealed the game 3-0 for City on Saturday. 

Newcastle United, on the other hand, are going through an amazing transition, after being bought by Saudi Arabian owners. Newcastle United's Premier League season in 2021/22 was in ruins halfway through. They were stuck in 19th place in the league standings with just one win, ten losses, and eight draws to their name. When the 2022–23 season came around, Newcastle finished fourth in the Premier League with 19 victories, 14 ties, and only five defeats, thus marking a stunning comeback. In this season’s opener, Newcastle dominated Aston Villa 5-1 at home.

Head - to-head:

The two clubs have faced each other 123 times till now, and Manchester City have the upper hand with 58 wins, whereas Newcastle are trailing behind with 40 wins. 25 games have resulted in draws so far. In their previous encounter, City won the game 2-0 in March at the Etihad.
