Manchester City vs. Newcastle United: Premier League – Match Preview

Manchester City will look to bounce back from dropped points against Wolves when they host Newcastle United on Saturday.

Pep Guardiola’s men needed a late equaliser from Aymeric Laporte to earn a point away at the newly promoted side.

They can consider themselves quite unlucky though, conceding to a handball and the champions also should have been awarded a second half penalty.

Newcastle United defended well for long periods at home to Chelsea, however conceded a late own goal to lose 2-1.

Eden Hazard and Joselu exchanged strikes, with DeAndre Yedlin’s late own goal the difference.

Match history
Manchester City have an incredible Premier League record against Newcastle, last suffering defeat back in 2005.

Team news
Manchester City deployed a back three at home to Huddersfield recently and are likely to do the same again here.

This would see both Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus feature for the champions.

Jamal Lascelles and Jonjo Shelvey missed the loss to Chelsea last time out and both remain doubts.

Kenedy is available though, having been ineligible to face his parent club.

Expected starting XI’s
Manchester City (3-5-2): Ederson; Stones, Kompany, Laporte; Walker, Gundogan, D.Silva, Fernandinho, Mendy; Aguero, Jesus
Newcastle United (5-4-1): Dubravka; Yedlin, Schar, Lascelles, Clark, Dummett; Ritchie, Diame, Ki, Kenedy; Rondon
