Manchester City vs Newcastle: Confirmed starting Xis

In arguably the pick of the Premier League’s Saturday action, reigning champions Manchester City play hosts to Newcastle at the Etihad Stadium.

Currently seven points behind Chelsea, failing to win today could in effect surrender the Citizens’ grip on the English title, so the Magpies – whose impressive campaign has curtailed since the resignation of Alan Pardew in January – will be up against a Sky Blues outfit determined to win.

That being said, the Toon are famed for their turbulent form and tend to turn it on against the Premier League’s big-boys. With just one win in their last five under John Carver, they’ll be equally keen to turn their form around.

So what should we expect from this afternoon’s exciting clash? Will it be a City romping or do Newcastle have a shock in store for the Eastlands outfit? Perhaps the starting line ups, just confirmed on Twitter, can shed some light on the issue.
