    Premier League: Newcastle v Man City LIVE!

    Probable Lineups…


    Newcastle United (4-4-1-1): 
    Krul, Janmaat, Coloccini, Williamson, Haidara, Sissoko, Colback, Anita, Gouffran, Cabella, Riviere

    Newcastle kick off their Premier League campaign against the reigning champions, but manager Alan Pardew has stated he has no fear of the Citizens at St.James’s Park. The Toon army have been quite busy in the transfer market, signing French duo Remy Cabella and Emmanuel Riviere as well as Ajax captain Siem de Jong to add much needed impetus into the Magpies attack. Unfortunately De Jong may miss the game with a small knock, which will allow Cabella to play behind Riviere with Goufran on the left of midfield.

    Manchester City (4-4-2): Hart, Clichy, Nastasic, Kompany, Kolarov, Fernando, Y Toure, Silva, Nasri, Jovetic, Dzeko

    Man City have just come off a 3-0 bashing from Arsenal in the Community Shield and will look to return to winning ways when they travel to Tyne-side. There are however a few injury concerns for the EPL champions, with first choice right-backs Pablo Zabaleta and Bacary Sagna, Martin Demichelis, Alvaro Negredo, and Sergio Aguero all set to miss the clash. Captain Vincent Kompany is also a doubt, but should regain his fitness in time to lead his team out against a much changed Newcastle outfit.

    Remember this?

    Tiote’s beautiful strike against City last season… however it was wrongfully disallowed. Let’s hope the referees do a good job this weekend!

    Stats to get your head around…

    Newcastle United vs. Manchester City: An Alternative Preview

    This is the reverse of last season's opening Barclays Premier League fixture when Newcastle United lost 0-4 at the Etihad Stadium.

    The Citizens have won four and lost none of their last five opening weekend league fixtures, keeping four clean sheets in the process.

    Newcastle have won just once in the last five seasons in their opening match (D2 L2).

    The Magpies have failed to score in their last three Barclays Premier League clashes with Manchester City.

    Man City full backs Aleksandar Kolarov (7) and Pablo Zabaleta (6) assisted more goals than any other defenders in the 2013-14 Premier League.

    Frank Lampard is the top scoring midfielder in Premier League history with 171 goals, as many as Aguero, Dzeko, Yaya Toure, David Silva and Vincent Kompany combined.

    Despite winning only two of their opening eight away games last season, City still ended the campaign with 34 road points. Only Liverpool and Arsenal (35) gained more (Man Utd & Chelsea also collected 34).

    Sergio Aguero scored 17 and assisted six goals in 23 appearances last season.

    Newcastle lost 11 of their last 15 games in the 2013-14 Premier League yet still finished in the top half of the table.

    City's total of 102 goals last season in the Premier League is the second highest in the competition's history (behind Chelsea with 103 in 2009-10).
