1 year ago

We asked fans the question, which 11 players would you pick in your Newcastle team v Manchester City?

We put together a list of the 25 players who looked as though they could potentially be selected for this game.

Newcastle looking to make it seven points from their opening three matches, having won 2-0 against Nottingham Forest and drawn 0-0 at Brighton.

Since losing 4-0 at home to Man City on 19 December 2021, Newcastle have only lost once at SJP in the Premier League (0-1 to Liverpool) and have never conceded more than one at home since that pre-Christmas match.
