Paul Merson has backed Newcastle United to win against Manchester City in the Premier League this weekend.

Newcastle will take on Manchester City at St. James’ Park in the league on Sunday.

Former Arsenal star and Sky Sports pundit Merson has backed the Magpies to pick up all three points from the encounter courtesy of a 2-1 win.

Merson wrote on SportsKeeda: “Newcastle have made a solid start to the Premier League season, but I don’t see anything other than a Manchester City win. 

“Eddie Howe will look to make it hard for the Cityzens with a plan to hit them on the counter attack, but Guardiola and Co. should still get all three points here to continue their perfect start to the new Premier League campaign.

“Erling Haaland enjoyed a Premier League debut to remember with a brace against West Ham, but he had only eight touches of the ball against Bournemouth and completed a meager two passes. 

“The Premier League is a different game, but I have no doubt in my mind that he’ll score bundles of goals for Manchester City. When he has space to run into, his electric pace comes into play, while he’s also an unbelievable finisher as we saw against West Ham.”

Manchester City can be backed at 13/2 on Betfair to win the Premier League game against Newcastle.
