Football - Remy misses opener

Newcastle new boy Loic Remy is a confirmed absentee from his side's Barclays Premier League opener away to Manchester City on Monday night.

The Frenchman has been sufferering from a nagging calf problem since linking up with the Magpies in the summer, and boss Alan Pardew has admitted it may take until the endof the month to clear.

Jonas Gutierrez could come into contention after making good progress from a hamstring complaint, and Pardew does not expect any new injury concerns.
