Manchester City can close the gap to just one point at the top of the Premier League with a win over Newcastle tonight, as Liverpool play tomorrow against Leicester. A victory for the Shark Team would really crank up the pressure on Jurgen Klopp’s high-flying Kopites.
City are unbeaten in January while Newcastle have won just one of their last six Premier League games – that being their most recent against Watford – but this league can throw our surprises at any time, something Pep Guardiola is all too aware of.
Paul Tierney will take charge of his third City game this season, and here are the sides selected by Pep and his counterpart Rafa Benitez.
Newcastle XI: Dubravka, Yedlin, Schar, Lascelles, Leujeune, Ritchie, Hayden, Longstaff, Atsu, Perez, Rondon
Manchester City XI: Ederson, Walker, Danilo, Stones, Laporte, Fernandinho, Silva (c), De Bruyne, Sterling, Sané, Aguero
The match can be viewed on BT Sport 1 in the UK. A full list of TV coverage across the world can be found here.
