Macca: City to bounce back; first win for QPR

Former player and football pundit Steve McMahon predicts the outcomes of this week’s English Premier League matches

By Steve McMahon


Newcastle United vs Manchester City

This is a must-win game for Manchester City, as they need to get their confidence back after the derby defeat. I can see them coming away with the victory because Newcastle have been very poor in recent weeks.

Prediction: 0-2 (Half-time 0-1)

Tottenham Hotspur vs Swansea City

If Tottenham are to equal their fourth place finish of last season, they need a winning run. Although Swansea have proven tricky customers so far, I think Spurs are too good at home.

Prediction: 2-0 (Half-time 1-0)
