The in-form Newcastle team is looking for a finish among the top four teams in England to qualify for next year’s Champions League. They have come very close to achieving this feat after defeating Chelsea 2-0 in their last game. A win here might just be the decisive push for them.
On the other hand, Roberto Mancini’s Man City is aiming for something much higher. After a recent win against their contenders at the top of the table, Manchester United, City has managed to plug the gap of eight points from a couple of weeks ago. A victory for City will take them so much closer to their first Premier League title since 1960.
Mancini declared the Newcastle game to be their hardest game, even harder than the United game. Mancini maintains that Man United is still the favorite, keeping in mind the recent Newcastle form. Newcastle have won seven of their last eight matches.
Magpies’ Papiss Cisse, who was signed in January and has since scored 13 goals in 14 matches, would be Newcastle’s man. His last two at Stamford Bridge have put all eyes on him for this game.
For City, it has to be Yaya Toure. His dazzling midfield performance in the Manchester derby and his penetrating runs are vital in the way that City plays.
