Manchester City vs Newcastle United: Match preview

Manchester City booked their place in the League Cup semi-finals on Tuesday as they cruised by Arsenal.

Pep Guardiola was able to name a heavily-rotated side which emphatically got the job done by winning 4-1.

City were also victorious in their previous Premier League outing as they defeated Southampton 1-0.

Despite currently sitting in 8th, a win on Saturday could even see City climb into the top four with a game in hand.

Newcastle eliminated from League Cup

Brentford reached their first-ever semi-final of a major cup competition as they defeated Newcastle United on Tuesday.

Josh Dasilva scored the only goal of the game as the Championship outfit caused an upset in west London.

The Tyneside club have now lost two of their last three games in all competitions.

Last Saturday, they were held to a 1-1 draw at home with strugglers and 10-man Fulham.

Their uninspiring run of form leaves 12th in the Premier League.
