Meanwhile, Rafa Benitez's team will be left disappointed by a late 2-1 loss to Chelsea last time out despite equalising towards the end of stoppage time, before Marcos Alonso proved to be the unlikely match-winner for the Blues.

Betting & Match Odds
Manchester City are priced at odds of winning 1/10 according to bet 365 , while a draw is available at 8/1. A win for the Magpies is priced at 20/1.
Guardiola's side will rue the fact that some refereeing decisions may have gone against his team in last week's fixture, but will need to regain momentum against Newcastle if they want to continue their hopes of defending their Premier League title.
City and Liverpool are being named as the frontrunners to challenge for the Premier League but the likes of Tottenham and Chelsea – who registered three wins in three – also remain dangerous.
Benitez's side have yet to register a win this season in the Premier League following a summer that was riddled with off-field troubles, losing to Tottenham on opening day and drawing with Cardiff City in their second game.
Newcastle missed a penalty in the final minute in their game against Cardiff and will be eager to register their first win of the new campaign with an unlikely victory over the English champions.
The Magpies will need to recover from a disappointing 3-1 midweek defeat in the Carabao Cup to Nottingham Forest, though the loss would have done little to motivate ahead of the club's toughest challenge in the Premier League against Guardiola's side.
