NEW vs MCI Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for Newcastle United vs Manchester City English Premier League Live Score 15 May

Share

NEW vs MCI Dream11: Leicester’s 1-2 victory away at Man Utd this past Tuesday night was enough to crown Man City Premier League champions for a seventh time ahead of their trip to Newcastle. Pep Guardiola’s side fell to a 1-2 defeat against fellow Champions League finalists Chelsea last weekend, but that result did not prove costly and they can now celebrate. Newcastle will prove resilient opposition having lost just one of their last six Premier League games and coming off the back of an excellent 2-4 win away at Leicester, the quality of Man City from a strength in depth perspective should prove too strong for the hosts here.

Date: 15 May, Saturday
Time: 12:30 AM (IST)
Venue: St. James’ Park, Newcastle upon Tyne

Premier League Table: Newcastle United are 16th in the EPL standings, while Manchester City are sitting in the 1st place.
