It is fascinating stuff though as Rafa Benitez explains how you can beat Manchester City but at the same time accepting that a lot of factors have to fall in your favour as well – because you can do everything right and still get beat.

Rafa Benitez has been looking back at Newcastle’s victory over Manchester City in January.

In his time at Newcastle, these were Rafa’s results against Manchester City: In all five games Rafa Benitez kept Newcastle in the game, Manchester City only leading by more than one goal in that 3-1 game – for four minutes until Jacob Murphy pulled it back to 2-1 and then the very final seven minutes when Man City scored their third.

The stats are staggering, as since that day Manchester City haven’t lost another Premier League match.

Against a team like Manchester City, Rafa Benitez says the most important thing is to stay in the game as long as possible because that then keeps both players and fans motivated and have some hope.

‘Manchester City were an unbelievable team when our Newcastle side beat them in January — and they still are.
