Editor’s View-

On paper, there is only one clear winner and that too at the Bridge, which will be the home team, though it is rightly said that games are not won on paper and if Newcastle can things sorted out for them, Rafa Benitez will be out to get some sweet revenge on his former club.

It will not be easy for the Magpies to take something out of the game, though if they can make the most of their chances, things could get really interesting on the pitch. Conte will not want to drop any points against the visitors on the night, with Manchester City looking lethal and not dropping points, with some late wins in recent weeks.

Whatever be the case, it will not be a really easy game for the Blues, who made it tough for them in the match against Swansea City and eventually won by the margin of a single goal. Predict the score-line and the goalscorers and let’s see who gets it right. Cheers!!
