Newcastle fans expect controversial Mo Diame to start again against Man City

Newcastle United face runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, and Magpies fans are expecting Mo Diame, who certainly divides opinion among the fan base, to be handed another start in midfield.

The Tyneside outfit make the trip to Pep Guardiola’s men on the back of a 1-1 draw at home to bottom side Swansea City, and they face a side who lost their unbeaten Premier League record this season when they were beaten 4-3 by Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.

Diame has started four of United’s last five Premier League matches and has impressed after struggling to make an impact – mainly from the substitutes’ bench – earlier in the campaign when he was on the end of criticism from the St James’ Park faithful.

Newcastle supporters were quick to have their say on how they expect their team to line up at the Ethiad, and while one said “I think Rafa will start with Diame again”, another said “I think Diame will play”.
