Below we produce our updated Premier League recent form table.

This is updated after every set of matches and  as well as featuring it in articles, it can also be found any time by visiting the menu at the top of this screen, click on ‘Season’ and then choose ‘Form Table’ from the drop down menu.

Looking ahead to Saturday’s match, maybe surprising to see Manchester City so low down in eighth when ranked over the last six games, little wonder they have dropped seven points off the pace at the top of the table.

A bit closer to home, Newcastle’s only win came at Hull, with three draws and two defeats meaning they are thirteenth in the recent form table. Looking slightly further ahead, the next visitors to St. James’ Park, Aston Villa, are rock bottom with five defeats and one draw in their last half dozen encounters.

Coming back to Saturday and Man City were fortunate to get a point off lowly Hull, thanks to a last minute goal by Milner. While Sunderland came back to 2-2 from 2 down, showing City can be vulnerable at the back in home matches.

However, they did bounce back to form with a four goal demolition away at Stoke in their last game, while £25m+ striker Wilfried Bony is in line to make his debut for Man City, already having scored three in two games against Newcastle for Swansea.

City’s last six results with latest one listed first;

Stoke 1 Man City 4

Man City 1 Hull 1

Chelsea 1 Man City 1

Man City 0 Arsenal 2

Everton 1 Man City 1

Man City 3 Sunderland 2

Looking for positives in Newcastle’s case, they are unbeaten in three and have only conceded two goals in that trio of matches. However, in Hull, Palace and Stoke, United had opposition who were all set up in a negative formation whilst Manchester City are sure to offer something a bit different.

Newcastle’s last six also listed with the latest result first;

Palace 1 Newcastle 1

Newcastle 1 Stoke 1

Hull 0 Newcastle 3

Newcastle 1 Southampton 2

Chelsea 2 Newcastle 0

Newcastle 1 Burnley 1
