THE TEAM NEWS

NEWCASTLE

  • Newcastle are coming off a loss at Aston Villa on Monday night as boss Steve Bruce came away empty-handed when returning to his old club.
  • They welcome Sean Longstaff back from suspension but Hayden and Shelvey have done well in his absence and may keep their places in midfield.
  • The lack of goals from their attacking trio of Almiron, Saint-Maximin and Joelinton may persuade Bruce to make a change in that department.

Predicted line-up (5-4-1): Dubravka; Javi Manquillo, Clark, Fernandez, Dummett, Willems; Almiron, Hayden, Shelvey, Saint-Maximin; Joelinton

Unavailable: Colback (Injured), Ritchie (Injured), Lascelles (Injured), Yedlin (Injured)

Doubtful: Lejeune (Injured)

MAN CITY

  • City bounced back from the loss to Liverpool with a win over Chelsea but they could only manage a draw at home to Shakhtar in midweek.
  • Pep Guardiola made some changes to his defence in midweek but is likely to rotate Walker, Stones and Mendy back into the side here.
  • With Aguero out injured, Gabriel Jesus will likely lead the line though it would be no surprise if Sterling played centrally at some stage.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Stones, Fernandinho, Mendy; Gundogan, David Silva, De Bruyne; Mahrez, Gabriel Jesus, Sterling

Unavailable: Sane (Injured), Laporte (Injured), Zinchenko (Injured), Aguero (Injured)

Doubtful:

THE PREDICTION

Newcastle sprung a major surprise in this fixture last season as they beat City 2-1, but Guardiola's men know they cannot afford a repeat of that. While they are far from their best at the moment, they should have enough to edge past the home side in a game that may well contain goals at both ends.
