This Saturday, Newcastle will be looking to get that elusive first win of the season.
So far, we’ve managed just one draw in the Premier League, whilst also crashing out of the Carabao Cup at the hands of Nottingham Forest.
However, this weekend the fixture list has been far from kind to us with a trip to the Etihad Stadium, to take on Manchester City, on the agenda.
The form books tell you that Newcastle are going to struggle to get anything from this game, but, then again, wouldn’t it be just like Rafael Benitez to take his side to the home of the reigning Premier League title holders and get a result?
Football, as we’ve grown to appreciate over the years, can be a strange game.
It’s important when you are having a spell like we are, to not let the confidence dip too much.
Therefore, following the principal above, we’d certainly be interested to see how our poll below goes, whereby we’re asking you to predict the outcome of the game this weekend.
Fingers crossed things go our way this Saturday afternoon in the late kick-off.
