Wednesday night sees Newcastle take on Man City for the second time since the restart, City having come out on top in their FA Cup quarter-final last month.

Despite having drawn in the reverse league fixture, City dominated the cup tie, with the Magpies only managing 24% possession and just one shot on target throughout that match.

And if that wasn’t enough of a headache for Steve Bruce, he’s struggling with injuries as he gets his side ready to face the Blues again.

Miguel Almiron, Andy Carroll, Isaac Hayden, Sean Longstaff, and Alan Saint-Maximinare are all doubts, nursing various problems they’ve picked up since the lockdown.

Injury wise City are doing much better – Aguero is the only long term absentee.

Despite his side suffering defeats to Chelsea at Southampton since football resumed, Guardiola has no doubts about the attitude of his players.

He said: “The performance was there and this makes me confident the team will not be relaxed.”

Kick-off for that match is 6 pm at the Etihad.
