Manchester City will be looking to close out another succesful Premier League season with a good run of wins, to put them in a positive mood heading into the Champions League final.

Pep Guardiola’s team were confirmed as winners of this year’s top flight after Man United lost to Leicester, with the 10-point lead they now hold enough to dethrone Liverpool with three games to play.

Newcastle are safe from relegation after a late-season run of wins, taking three from their last five to pull away from the bottom three - almost a third of their total league victories all year long.

Steve Bruce will be expected to make his team more competitive next season when the fans are back, but it wouldn’t be a surprise if the Magpies reverted to an extra-defensive approach for this match which City will likely dominate.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the game.

Prediction

The Magpies might make a bit of a game of it if they’re not directed to put 10 behind the ball at all times, but ultimately City’s players are trying to earn a spot in the team for the European Cup final - they’ll find a way through eventually. Newcastle 1-3 Man City.
