Manchester City to score over 3.5 goals –

Manchester City have scored four goals in three of their last five home games, and even managed three against the meanest home defence in the Premier League at Liverpool last week.

Newcastle have shipped 12 goals in their last six away games, including four at Manchester United in November.

Sergio Aguero to score first –

Aguero has scored in four consecutive home matches, including first against Bournemouth and within 20 minutes of coming on against Bristol City.

Raheem Sterling to score –

Sterling has scored six goals in his last seven appearances at the Etihad Stadium, and netted the only goal of the game in the reverse fixture three weeks ago.

Danilo to be carded

Danilo has only started 14 games in all competitions this season, but still collected six bookings.

With Fabian Delph missing, the Brazilian is sure to start, and is a strong candidate for another card.
