The hardest fixture in the Premier League is a trip to meet Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
And after Manchester City’s triple last season, they won the Premier League – they have won five of the last six PLs, the FA Cup, and the Champions League – they are undoubtedly right now the best team in the world.
So it will be a tough trip for our lads tomorrow when we will kick off the game at 8:00pm.
Here are some facts from the BBC on our record at the Etihad Stadium.
Manchester City have lost just one of their last 31 Premier League games against Newcastle (W25 D5), going down 2-1 at St. James’ Park in January 2019.
Newcastle have never won in 18 Premier League games at the Etihad Stadium (D2 L16), with their last away league win against Man City at Maine Road in September 2000.
It’s the most any team has played at a specific venue without ever winning in Premier League history.
So what better way to motivate the boys than for Eddie Howe to point this stat out.
Newcastle are in form and we are determined to show the rest of the Premier League we are a team to be reckoned with – right now.
Howay The Bonnie Lads!!
