Manchester City will hope to get back to winning ways when Newcastle visit the Etihad Stadium this afternoon.

Following Wednesday night’s dramatic loss to Real Madrid in the Champions League, Pep Guardiola knows any slip-up in the next four games could prove fatal in the title race and leave him empty-handed for the first time since the summer of 2017.

City do boast a fantastic record against Newcastle on home soil but Eddie Howe’s side are one of the Premier League’s form teams and will hope to lay a marker down ahead of next season, when they could be challenging further up the table.

Guardiola has insisted little has changed in a Premier League context for City, although it’s hard to imagine that really is the case. Anything other than a win here and the inquest really would start, especially with Liverpool dropping points against Tottenham at Anfield last night.
