NEW Vs MCI Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: The FA Cup remains the only thing for City to salvage after conceding the Premier League to Liverpool.
You spend millions on players, end up assembling a wordclass side and at the end of the day the rewards for shelving out a staggering amount are being thwarted by a side which did next to no business in transfers. Manchester City have been royally decimated and ripped into shreds by Liverpool this season, a sortie which has been a testament to why Klopp way outshines Pep when it comes to acumen as a manager.
Narrowly missing out on the Premier League trophy to City the last time around, Champions League holder’s Liverpool were unfazed by the disappointment of the foregone soiree. The side came back stronger and with an even humdinger appetite to maraud its way to the elusive trophy, one which the side finally wrapped its hands around a couple of a day’s back.
And the fact that the prestigious trophy was heralded by Liverpool after City were putdown 2-1 by Chelsea was the most befitting way for the league leaders to be serenaded with the title. Where for Liverpool everything has gone according to plan, City on the other hand have been left completely flummoxed, a team left ruing their lacklustre showings in the season.
After missing out on the Premier League trophy, the FA Cup grows in worth for City. The side badly needs to win this trophy if it is to have ended up with the notion of even a slightly successful campaign, a trophy they’ll spare no expense in making their own.
This added pressure will buoy them when they take on Newcastle Untied in the last quarter-final, a match Manchester City should have little jitters in winning.

NEW Vs MCI Dream11 Picks
Although Karl Darlow has been accorded seldom chances for Newcastle United given Dubravka’s gripping showings, the goal-keeper is all set to get a chance today. And he’s someone more than capable of filling the role he’s been asked to hold onto, a well endowed safeguard to make him our pick for the encounter.
Barring their performance against Chelsea, City had a solid defensive return to the league. The side has registered two cleansheets on the bounce, performances which alluded towards the sound and company brand of defensive football the side is capable of deploying.
And while they’ll be massively changing their backline today, we are still going to back a City cleansheet for this tie. Its not only down to their defensive knowhow but also Newcastle’s meek and timid attacking unit, one which has gotten cold feet when trying to score.
The trio of Joao Cancelo, Nicholas Otamendi and Zinchenko will all be reposed faith in by us from City for the imminent tie.
The last season at the club for David Silva, the midfielder is all set to get a role in the side’s playing 11 for the upcoming encounter. The side will be looking to send him away with a trophy, one which will be the perfect way to round up his time at the club.
He’s partnered by Barnardo Silva who has the five goals and seven assists this season with Phil Foden making advent into our side as well. The player has gradually improved with each passing match, showing he’s deserving of a more regular place in the side’s gameplan after scoring twice against Burnley.
Elsewhere, Newcastle United will be represented by their top scorer Shelvey who has the five goals and Allan Saint-Maxim who scored for the club in their soiree against Sheffield United.
With Aguero out for the reminder of the season, Gabriel Jesus is set to get elevated roles at the club. The striker has 10 goals and 5 assists this season, someone capable of making up for Aguero’s absence to see us opt for him from the side.
The home side on the other hand see us move in with Joelinton to wrap up proceedings for the impending clash.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His 10 goals will make Jesus our captain for the day while Foden is the vice-captain.
