Manuel Pellegrini’s side could regain top spot if they beat Newcastle today, but will have to be at their best to pick up the three points against a side preforming especially well at home.
Newcastle are without Mathieu Debuchy who is suspended, and club captain Fabio Collocini who is injured, so will have to deal with City’s superb attack with a makeshift defence.
City are still without Sergio Aguero, but have Alvaro Negredo in attack, who has scored 18 goals in all competitions this term.
Here are the lineups for today’s match:
