City take to the road in the early kick-off on Saturday afternoon to face Newcastle United.
The Barclays Premier League Champions are unbeaten away from home this season and have beaten the Magpies on their home patch in two of the last three seasons.
A Yaya Toure double in gave the Blues all three points last season’s encounter with Gareth Barry, Carlos Tevez and a Fabricio Coloccini own goal on the score sheet in the 3-1 win the season before.
City are 4/6 in Paddy Power’s online betting to keep up their good run away form with Alan Pardew’s side at 4/1 and the draw chalked up at 14/5.
Yaya was among the goals in the 3-2 derby defeat to Manchester United last Sunday and is 15/2 to get the opening goal of the game or 23/10 to score at anytime over the 90 minutes at St James’ Park.
Paddy Power make it 7/1 that City repeat last year’s 2-0 winning margin while its 11/1 that the game ends in a 3-1 win for the visitors.
Both of Toure’s goals last season came in a 19-minute spell in the second half with the opener coming in the 70th minute.
Paddy Power make it 13/2 that the Citizens win the second half 2-0 in the correct score market while in the half-time/full-time market it’s 20/1 that the sides are drawing at the break and City win 2-0 at full-time.
City to score first is 8/15 with the online firm and its 16/1 that the opening goal comes in the 56th to 65th minute.
Tevez is 9/2 to score first and 6/5 to hit the net at anytime as City’s top scorer this season tries to add to his tally of seven Barclays Premier League goals so far.
