Man City will host Newcastle at the Etihad Stadium to play match week 36 Premier League 2021/22, Sunday (08/05/2022) at 9:00 p.m. Indian time.

Man City is currently catching up with Liverpool in the race for the Premier League title this season. Pep Guardiola's troops are currently still at the top of the standings with a score of 83 points, 1 point ahead of Jurgen Klopp's troops.

Man City itself is in a slump ahead of this match. Man City has just been hit by a comeback by Real Madrid in the Champions League semifinal match. In the second leg of the semi-final last week, Man City lost 1-3 to Madrid which knocked them out of the Champions League with an aggregate defeat of 5-6.

The defeat clearly hit the mentality of the Man City players considering they were on a comeback in the final minutes of the game. However, Man City must still be able to rise from adversity if they do not want to be overtaken by Liverpool and fail to win the Premier League this season.

On the other hand, Newcastle is currently in the tenth position in the standings with a score of 43 points. The Magpies need at least 1 more win to ensure they are safe from the relegation zone.

Newcastle itself in its last match narrowly lost 0-1 against Liverpool in the Premier League last weekend. The defeat broke Newcastle's streak of good results, which previously always won in 4 consecutive matches (W4 D0 L0).

At the first meeting in the 18th match week of the English Premier League this season, Man City was able to beat Newcastle with a landslide score of 4-0 at St. James' Park. Each of Man City's four winning goals in that match was scored by Ruben Dias in the 5th minute, Joao Cancelo in the 27th minute, Riyad Mahrez in the 64th minute, and Raheem Sterling in the 86th minute.
