Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has been cleared to travel to Newcastle ahead of Sunday’s Premier League meeting.

The 50-year-old’s pre-match press conference was cancelled after an inconclusive test but, in a boost for the English champions, Guardiola will be in the dugout as things stand.

“Newcastle is a very tough opponent,” Guardiola said.

“People will talk about our place in the table or their place in the table but when you go to Newcastle you know what sort of game to expect.

“Now they have a new manager in Eddie (Howe) and we know what a good manager he is.

“They have had a tough start to the season but they are a good team with good players and a top manager so we will go there and have to work hard for each other to win the game.

“Every game in the Premier League is tough. Whether you are playing against teams at the top of the table or the bottom.
