Manchester United legend Patrice Evra has backed Manchester City to beat Newcastle United at St James Park on Sunday.

Evra told Betfair: “I wish Newcastle would win. I think Guardiola and his team now feel like they are going to do it again and they won’t want to miss opportunities, especially when you see Liverpool struggling.

“They still need to adapt to having a striker up front but trust me when it’s perfect Erling Haaland will score a hat trick in most of the games.”
