Manchester City had to force their way through a siege at St James' Park last season, winning thanks to a single Raheem Sterling strike in the first half. Rafa Benitez was widely criticised for his tactics, but his team did a good job at stifling a Pep Guardiola side that had been scoring for fun and almost grabbed an equaliser.
The Newcastle manager is under fire again after setting up his team in ultra defensive fashion against Chelsea at the weekend, where again they nearly took a point off a much better team but ultimately did not.
Benitez was not moved by the storm his tactics created in the TV studios as pundits sbobet online 24 gave their views on the performance against Chelsea, and it sounds as though his players are gearing themselves up for a similar performance when they head to the Etihad this weekend.
