Manchester City vs Newcastle - LIVE!

Raheem Sterling scored twice for the hosts with Aymeric Laporte, Rodri and Phil Foden also on target as they shrugged off the bitter disappointment of their Champions League semi-final defeat by Real Madrid.

Sterling eased any early jitters with a header and Laporte’s tap-in gave City full control before the interval.

Rodri headed City’s third from a corner after the break and Foden swept in his side’s fourth before Sterling struck again in stoppage time as City took emphatic advantage of Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur the previous day.

Newcastle’s Chris Wood spurned a great chance to give his side an early lead but the visitors were no match for City who took an important step towards a fourth title in five seasons.

City have 86 points to Liverpool’s 83 with both sides having three games remaining and City now have a superior goal difference. Liverpool face Aston Villa on Tuesday with City up against Wolverhampton Wanderers a day later.

Manchester City: Not ready for the Champions League

15:18 , Jonathan Gorrie

There will be no all-English Champions League final. Instead, in Paris, will be a meeting of European royalty, after Real Madrid prompted a latest Manchester City meltdown to book a date with Liverpool.

Two of the true greats of the competition will go head-to-head for the biggest prize in club football. And the brutal truth is, City do not belong in that company.

Not yet. Not after yet another failure on this stage, when their spectacular riches were found wanting once more, when their lauded manager came up short in the heat of the battle.

Liverpool and Madrid, who share 19 European Cups between them, are reaching the latter stages of the Champions League on such a regular basis that it is almost on muscle memory.

It is three in five seasons for Jurgen Klopp. If Madrid triumph at the Stade de France on May 28, it will be the fifth time they have won the trophy in the last nine years.

City have reached just one final — last year, when beaten by Chelsea in Porto — since their Abu Dhabi funding transformed them into the dominant force in English football.

Pep Guardiola: Losing to Real Madrid in the Champions League is not a ‘failure’

15:04 , Jonathan Gorrie

Pep Guardiola does not believe Manchester City’s dramatic loss to Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals constitutes a “failure”.

City looked set to set up an all-English affair with Liverpool later this month before Rodrygo and Karim Benzema scored late on to send Madrid through to the final at their expense.

Guardiola’s inability to win the club game’s grandest prize since leaving Barcelona has frequently been used as a stick to beat him with, particularly given the money he has been afforded at the Etihad.

Whether or not that means his legacy at the club, and the Premier League as a whole, is somewhat tainted is up for debate, given just how dominant City have been on the domestic front since his appointment in 2016.

City are currently in pole position to win yet another League title under Guardiola’s watch, a trophy that would take him above anyone else in the division’s history aside from Sir Alex Ferguson in terms of titles won.

Could Paul Pogba join Manchester City?

14:54 , Jonathan Gorrie

Manchester City have been offered the chance to sign Manchester United star Paul Pogba in a sensational deal this summer, according to reports.

The French midfielder is out of contract at Old Trafford at the end of the season, when it is widely expected he will depart the club for the second time with no agreement reached over a lucrative extension.

Pogba has been linked with returning to his native France with Paris Saint-Germain after his United deal expires, while he has also been mentioned in connection with the likes of Real Madrid and former club Juventus.

However, The Times reported on Saturday that the 29-year-old joins West Ham’s Declan Rice - also a top United target - on a City shortlist of box-to-box midfield targets that could potentially replace Fernandinho, the long-serving captain who plans to depart Etihad Stadium this summer.

Although he would obviously command significant wages, the lack of a transfer fee for Pogba could make him a more attractive candidate than Rice, who West Ham do not want to sell and value at an exorbitant £150million with three years left to run on his contract.

Prediction

14:44 , Jonathan Gorrie

Newcastle are a solid defensive unit but, as they showed against Liverpool, tend to lack the kind of attacking danger to truly threaten the League’s leading teams.

Man City to win, 2-0.

Newcastle team news

14:33 , Jonathan Gorrie

For Newcastle, Howe revealed there is a very strong chance Callum Wilson could play for the first time since December, while Kieran Trippier has also returned to full training.

Isaac Hayden, Ryan Fraser and Jamal Lewis all remain out, with Fabian Schar a big doubt.

Guardiola has confirmed Kevin De Bruyne was only brought off against Madrid for tactical reasons, meaning he is fit for today’s game. Elsewhere, Kyle Walker and John Stones are both doubts.
