Manchester City takes on Newcastle United in the FA Cup Quarter Final on Saturday. These two sides have already faced each other in the EFL Cup where Newcastle beat Man City 1-0.

Manchester City has won five meetings with the Northeast club and will be looking to defend their title. Manchester City won the FA Cup last season beating bitter rivals Manchester United in the final 2-1.

While both teams are talented, especially the reigning champs, both come in shorthanded. Man City is without Jack Grealish and Ederson for this game. Newcastle United is without Nick Pope, Lewis Hall, Kieran Trippier, Joelinton, and Callum Wilson.

Who do I think will progress to the Semi Finals? What do I think will happen?  Well, let’s get into it.

Manchester City vs. Newcastle United Prediction and Pick

I love the FA Cup, it is a brilliant concept as you can get sides who you might not think will win to win but I do not think this is the case.

I think Manchester City will fight to win as many trophies as they did last year,

I also think Phil Foden will get a goal contribution in this game.

Back Manchester City to win and Phil Foden to score or assist.
