Manchester City return to the Etihad Stadium this weekend as Pep Guardiola’s side host Newcastle United on August 19.
City have enjoyed a superb start to the new season, with a dominant 3-0 Premier League win over Burnley on the opening weekend followed up by victory over Sevilla on penalties in the UEFA Super Cup in midweek.
However, the Magpies are set to offer a stern test to the defending champions after Eddie Howe’s men stormed to a 5-1 win over Aston Villa in their own campaign opener.

Man City vs Newcastle United lineups
Guardiola will be without captain Kevin De Bruyne for at least three months after the Belgium international underwent hamstring. Bernardo Silva missed the UEFA Super Cup win through illness and Guardiola expects him to rejoin the squad next week.
Julian Alvarez was restricted to a short cameo against Sevilla due to a minor niggle. John Stones (hamstring) will miss out but defensive colleague Ruben Dias could return after sitting out the past two games with concussion.
Man City lineup (4-2-3-1): Ederson (GK) – Kyle Walker, Manuel Akanji, Ruben Dias, Josko Gvardiol – Mateo Kovacic, Rodri – Julian Alvarez, Phil Foden, Jack Grealish – Erling Haaland
Howe will have few reasons to change following the hammering of Villa last time out. Joe Willock and Emil Krafth remain sidelined though injury, while Harvey Barnes may also miss out on a starting spot despite scoring off the bench on his debut.
Newcastle United lineup (4-3-3): Nick Pope (GK) — Kieran Trippier, Fabian Schar, Sven Botman, Dan Burn — Joelinton, Bruno Guimaraes, Sandro Tonali — Miguel Almiron, Callum Wilson, Anthony Gordon.
Man City vs Newcastle United prediction, odds
Wins for both sides on the opening weekend ensured a positive start for Guardiola and Howe with City backing that up in the UEFA Super Cup. However, despite Newcastle’s superb progress in the last 12 months, they have not beaten City in a Premier League game since 2019 with an aggregate score of 14-0 on their past four Premier League visits to the Etihad Stadium.
Prediction: Man City 3-1 Newcastle United
