    Newport County Manchester City Tips, Predictions and Odds

    Newport County host Manchester City in matchday 5 of the FA Cup on Saturday 16th February, 5:30pm at Rodney Parade.

    A bridge too far

    The fact that Newport County have seen off Leicester and Middlesbrough is testament to the magic of the FA Cup, as Mike Flynn’s men have lost nine of their last 15 games in League Two. Manchester City, by way of contrast, have won seven of eight in the top-flight recently.

    Match result top tip: Manchester City to win @ 1.06


    No more moments of magic

    Scoring a goal in this tie would represent success for the Welsh side, but they have drawn a blank five times in eight fourth-tier fixtures recently. For their part, the Citizens have found the net in 11 consecutive top-flight matches.

    Both teams to score top tip: BTTS – No @ 1.67


    The sternest of tests

    Over the course of their previous 19 Premier League matches, Pep Guardiola’s side have netted a staggering 53 times. Newport County, meanwhile, have conceded six goals and four goals, respectively, in home meetings with Yeovil and Forest Green this season.

    Over/under top tip: Over 3.5 Goals @ 1.57


    Contrasting records

    Newport County have a worrying habit of conceding the first goal, doing so 12 times in their previous 20 League Two fixtures. Manchester City, on the other hand, have gone 1-0 up 11 times in a row at Premier League level.

    Team to score first top tip: Manchester City to score first @ 1.11


    Incredible depth of talent

    Gabriel Jesus is likely to start in attack for the visitors at Rodney Parade, with the Brazilian international boasting nine goals in as many games this calendar year. Of the 21-year-old’s 16 club goals this season, four have put his team into a 1-0 lead.

    Player to score first top tip: Gabriel Jesus to score first @ 4.10
