Newcastle vs Manchester City
Kick off: 18:30 28/06/2020
- Newcastle United go into this FA Cup quarter-final unbeaten in five competitive games (W3, D2) - a sequence in which they kept three clean sheets. Managing one shutout in five FA Cup matches this term, they scored at least one first-half goal in four of those five fixtures.
- At home, the ‘Magpies’ have not lost a competitive fixture since New Years’ Day (W3, D4) with their last six games at St James’ Park all goalless at the break.
- Manchester City have netted five (55.56%) of their nine goals across three FA Cup matches this term in the second half. Conceding just two competitive goals since resumption (W2, L1), City have scored nine times, only failing to net in one of six halves played.
- They are less prolific on the road, with each of their last eight competitive away games (W5, L3) seeing them score no more than twice. Interestingly, it has been all or nothing for the ‘Citizens’ on their travels in all competitive matches since they drew with Newcastle in the league in November (W11, L4).
- Players to watch: With four FA Cup goals this term, Newcastle’s Miguel Almirón is (going into this round) the competition’s leading scorer among the quarter-finalists. All four strikes came before half-time.
- City boast a perfect record (W13) from games where Gabriel Jesus has found the net. His last four strikes - including two against Fulham in the FA Cup fourth round - have come after the 70th minute.
- Stat attack: Newcastle have received an average of 1.40 yellow cards per FA Cup game this term.
- All of the six FA Cup goals Newcastle have conceded this season have come after the 70th minute.
- City haven’t scored a first-half goal in seven of their last eight competitive away matches.
