Sergio Agüero, Hat-trick Hero as City Whips Newcastle 3-1

Predicted Bristol City XI vs Man City

Predicted Bristol City XI vs Man City

Manchester City: Ederson 6, Kyle Walker 7, John Stones 6, Nicolas Otamendi 6, Oleksandr Zinchenko 7, Fernandinho 6, Kevin De Bruyne 8, David Silva 6, Raheem Sterling 7, Leroy Sane 7, Sergio Aguero 8.

Luka Milivojevic struck a consolation but Arsene Wenger's side won their first match of 2018.

Former Arsenal forward Merson believes Mauricio Pochettino's side could go far, but worries about the depth of their squad if they were to receive injuries. Aguero has been vital in Manchester City's success this season, seen through his prolific goal-scoring form.

The 29-year-old is expected to complete a move to Manchester United, with some reports suggesting the deal could be worth around £180 million with Sanchez receiving a salary of £14m a year after tax.

It was a slow start to the game for the Belgian but as Newcastle's defence began to show gaps, De Bruyne took his golden opportunity by whipping the ball on which Aguero was deemed to have gotten a touch for the lead. For many weeks, score lines were 4-0 wins in City's favor.

With an undefeated streak that stretches back 14 games in the league, does anyone really think Swansea will be able to win this one?

In their last meeting back in December, Newcastle United enjoyed only 22% possession over the course of the game. But, over the last six gameweeks, they failed to win a single game and are now five points below sixth placed Arsenal. With City relying on the long ball as their only means to advance, opportunity lies in dominating the air.

Unlike the rest of the Premier League this season, Liverpool found the formula to knock City out of their stride. The way we fought and the way we tried to play when they defended with many players in the box, that's why it is so good.

Keep the pressure high. In addition, Aguero leads City in shots per match as the striker averages close to four shots per match.

Guardiola admitted City had lost their composure in the second half after being rattled by Liverpool's relentless pressing and the ferocious Anfield atmosphere. And then, this fixture against Burnley could not have come at a better time!

Putting his goal against Liverpool aside for one moment, Sané has been nowhere near his best at the moment.

Ultimately, Manchester City is a team that can be beaten.

"He has worked with a lot of great players, a lot of quality players, intelligent players". Manchester United must learn from this win, and use this as ammunition to defeat our cross-city rivals.

'Newcastle having to face us after our first loss and a full week's rest.they must feel lucky.

Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho were expected to renew their previously toxic rivalry in Manchester, but it hasn't transpired that way at all.
