There is never a good time to play Manchester City, but Newcastle may be travelling to the Etihad Stadium at the worst possible moment. Not only will Pep Guardiola’s men be desperate to put right their first defeat of the Premier League campaign last week at Liverpool, but this is the first week they’ve had no game to prepare for on a Tuesday or a Wednesday since August.

Newcastle’s tough season appeared to be hinging on a takeover of the club, but an announcement from current owner Mike Ashley appeared to suggest talks with the perspective buyers of the club were off. Rafa Benitez is in the dark as it is, with no news on his transfer funds almost half way through the window. It has not been the best backdrop for preparations to face the champions elect, making an already likely home win all the more probable.

Form

All the talk about Manchester City going the season unbeaten came to a swift end after last week’s loss on Merseyside. But they showed Guardiola still has the tools to take them to the top by playing in the same way throughout the game. Their lead atop the league still stands at 12 points.

Newcastle are going well in the league right now, despite off the pitch talk and failing to beat Swansea last weekend. They won their last Premier League away game at Stoke and sit three points above the drop zone, but this will an entirely different challenge.

Team News

Manchester City will be without Gabriel Jesus, who is still recovering from a knee problem, and Benjamin Mendy. Newcastle, though, have no fresh injury concerns ahead of this game.
