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.

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.
