Manchester City v Newcastle United: When is it? Is it on TV? What’s the latest injury news?
Pep Guardiola’s side will be looking to bounce back from their Champions League disappointment on Wednesday night when they return to Premier League action.
Newcastle United will be their opponents this weekend as Eddie Howe’s side aim to make club history and secure their first ever Premier League victory at the Etihad Stadium.
To do this, they will have to defeat a team that has emerged victorious in the last five meetings between the teams, doing so with an aggregate score of 17-3.
City secured a comfortable 4-0 win in the reverse fixture between the two sides, one that will be largely remembered for the failure to award Newcastle a penalty after Ederson wiped out Ryan Fraser.
