Man City's Milner believes playing Newcastle away harder than Man U

   May 3, 3:11 pm

London, May 3(ANI): Manchester City midfielder James Milner believes beating Newcastle United at the Sports Direct Arena on Sunday would be a tougher affair than beating Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium.

If City drops any points against the Geordies, it would shift the title race in United's favor, provided they win their match against Swansea City at Old Trafford.

Newcastle just like City is in superb form, and with the Toons only losing two games at home this season, it seems to be a tough job for the table toppers to claim maximum points.

Milner spent four years on the Tyneside and admits City still has it all to do to claim their first title since 1968.

"The game against United was massive and a big result for us - but we can't get carried away," The Sun quoted Milner, as saying.

"We've got two games left and it will be just as difficult, maybe even harder, going away to St James' at the weekend. That's obviously the next thing on our minds. If we can get a good result there then it's in our hands," he added.

If City beat Newcastle, it will leave them with just a home match against former boss Mark Hughes and relegation-haunted QPR to seal it, and they would be confident they could see it out from there due to their outstanding home form.

Milner added: "The away trip will be the tougher one of the two we've got left. We've been in top form at home all year so that's not too much of a worry. But Sunday afternoon will be the tough one." (ANI)
