Can record-breaking Manchester City make it 18 wins in a row today at St. James’ Park? They face a Newcastle team which has lost its last four home games, but who are fresh off a 3-2 win over West Ham in London.
Guardiola’s men haven’t faced Rafa Benitez’s side yet this season, and the two teams lock horns again in January at the Etihad. Today, over 50,000 Geordies will be hoping their team can end the unprecedented winning run of Man City.
Andre Marriner is the referee and here are the lineups selected by the two Spanish tacticians:
Newcastle XI: Elliot, Yedlin, Lascelles, Mbemba, Dummett, Manquillo, Murphy, Diame, Shelvey, Aarons, Joselu
Manchester City XI: Ederson, Walker, Kompany, Otamendi, Danilo, Gundogan, Fernandinho, De Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, Sterling, Agüero
The match can be viewed on Sky Sports Premier League in the UK. A full list of TV coverage from around the world can be found here.
