Newcastle vs Man City LIVE SCORE: Treble winners take on wounded Magpies in huge Premier League clash – latest updates

Welcome to Newcastle vs Man City

The Magpies welcome Man City to St James’ Park for a game of great importance to both teams but for very different reasons.

Joelinton has been ruled out for a minimum of six weeks due to a thigh injury and joins Callum Wilson, Matt Targett, Nick Pope, Jacob Murphy, Joe Willock, Havey Barnes, Elliot Anderson and Javi Manquillo in the Newcastle very crowded treatment room.

With the injury to Joelinton, Lewis Miley will slot in to partner Sean Longstaff and Bruno Guimaraes in the heart of midfield for Eddie Howe’s side.

Fabian Schar signed a contract extension this week and is likely to join a back four alongside Kieran Trippier, Sven Botman and Dan Burn as they look to face Pep Guardiola’s fluid attack.

Alexander Isak, Miguel Almiron and Anthony Gordon will lead the attack for The Magpies as they look to cause problems for the visitors.

For Man City Erling Haaland and John Stones will definitely miss this game while Jack Grealish remains a doubt due to illness.

Manuel Akanji is a minor doubt as he was forced off in the first half of the recent FA Cup game but Man City expect to have Bernardo Silva and Kalvin Phillips available after both missed the last match due to illness.

Kyle Walker and Nathan Ake are expected to be recalled to the team that started the cup match, along with goalkeeper Ederson.

The big question for the visitors’ fans is whether they will get to see Kevin De Bruyne start the game against Newcastle today.
