The defending champions are expected to dismantle the poor Newcastle United defence quite easily, with Sergio Aguero very likely to add to his tally of 14 goals against Newcastle United, while an inspired performance from their defence might still help the Magpies gather a single point.

Predicted Score: 4-0
