Suara.com – Manchester City will continue their efforts to defend the Premier League title by hosting Newcastle United on Matchday Week 26 on Saturday (4/3/2023) at 19.30 WIB.
The Citizen looks into this match with positive capital where they are unbeaten in the last six matches across competitions.

On the other hand, Man City’s opponents in Week 26 are not a random team. Newcastle United, which was acquired by a Saudi Arabian consortium last season, is enjoying an impressive run in the Premier League.
Newcastle is temporarily ranked fourth in the standings with a collection of 41 points from 23 matches and is only four points adrift of Tottenham Hotspur in the last place in the Champions League zone.
However, Newcastle is facing an inconsistent appearance where Eddie Howe’s side have never won in their last four matches across competitions with details of two draws and two defeats.
