Newcastle United face a gargantuan task tonight in the English Premier League, hosting Newcastle United at St James’ Park.
Pep Guardiola’s side are currently undefeated in domestic competition this season, dropping just two points in the top-flight, way back in August.
It’s been an extraordinary streak that’s seen them score an eye-watering 60 league goals along the way in just 19 matches.
Are they unstoppable?
The Magpies will be hoping not, needing as many points as possible to keep them clear of being drawn into a prolonged relegation battle.
Rafa Benitez’s side have less than a third of City’s points total and have less than a third of total goals scored, highlighting the difference this season between the two sides.
Nonetheless, fans are hopeful they can be the team to finally beat the league leaders, believing an upset is on the cards this evening.
Supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
I can smell an upset in the air. Man City have had too much celebratory Xmas turkey, they'll be complacent. They cant keep winning forever. Howay the lads!!! #NUFC
