Newcastle take on Man City on Wednesday 27th December, 2017, with kickoff at 19:45. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports.

Given the career he has had, it’s not unfair to call Rafa Benitez one of the more underrated managers of his generation, but that’s just how it goes. He may not quite be a Pep Guardiola, but in terms of the other ‘greats’ Rafa has most of them licked for tactics and knowledge, only falling behind when players need to be told how wonderful they are, and are unable to just be professional.

Today, he doesn’t have the tools to win matches like this, but a shifty draw could be possible if he really gets it right.
